I just cannot believe this. there is so much to say and i am so happy!! I HAD MY BABY!!!! Here are all the details:
Acadia Li-ming Setter.
Born on November 25th, 2004 at 8:24pm.
She has a head of black hair just like her mommy.
She has no problem latching on! YES!! my boobie baby knows just how to do it!
Best of all- she is healthy and beautiful!! Every time I re-play the doctor's words "She is perfectly healthy" in my mind, I get ecstatic. I cannot believe how lucky we are. I just can't.
Here is the delivery story:
Everybody was over at my house for a combonation baby shower/Thanksgiving celebration. We wanted to combine the two occasions because some of our friends and relatives live pretty far away and we didn't want them to have to make 2 separate trips out here. I was chopping veggies with Linna (who is sitting right nest to me at the moment) when I felt a shot of pain. I was not expecting this so I let out a yelp and Linna told me to lay down on the couch. After laying down for a minute and having no more pain, I decided to go back and chop some more veggies. However, I got another shot of pain, more painful this time, and I doubled over. All of a sudden everybody was crouding around me and I just wanted space, but everybody decided that we should go to the hospital. Matt went to get the baby's going-home outfit just in case, but at first we couldn't even FIND it. Finally we got everything and everybody (nobody wanted to stay behind, even the few people *not sayng names, lol* who seemed glued to the football game before. so sweet of them! i love you guys!) and decided everybody would have to squish into 2 cars (my mom's car and Logan's car). The ride to the hospital was NOT FUN. The contractions got worse and closer together, and we, so *conveniently*, live about 13 miles from the hospital. But we DID get there and we all must have looked pretty silly, a bunch of teenagers and some adults with one pregnant, red-faced teen trying to keep from screaming. I was REALLY scared. I just wanted the baby out!! Tha labor was SOOOO painful and scary I cannot even describe (but most of y'all can relate, right?). It lasted *forever*, but then finally i heard my baby's crying and it was the best feeling in th world. No, it wasnt. The best feeling was when the doctor gave her to me and told me she was healthy like i had been praying for. Now Linna wants to type something:
Hiya peeps! This is Linna, I was in the waiting room with about 15-20 other frazzled teenagers. Matt was pacing constantly until i finally got him to sit down and read something. We pooled our money Anya and Dante kept leaving and coming back with coffee and food (bless their souls). We all just wanted to go in there and see how everything was going, but a few of the hospital staff people were total bitches (and racist too, they were REALLY nasty to Lucia and Amelia because they are black) and we just had to wait. thank god Aaron had his laptop and Meimei had her i-pod (:. Then FINALLY someone came and told us that Sho had a healthy baby girl and we all exploded. They let Matt go in and see her, and he already had tears in his eyes, i swear. later they let us all see baby Acadia, and she is SO beautiful. she is sleeping next to us right now, and i keep peeping into the cradle and squeaking. yes folks, squaking. got a problem? (jkjkjk). okay, well Shoshi is telling me to finish up so imma gonna go now.
*It's Satoshi again*
Wow, that is basically it! I know this is going to be allot of work, but I am SO thankful to have friends, family, and my wonderful bf Matt supporting us all the way. Not many teen moms are that fortunate.
Acadia, you are our beautiful, precious, healthy Thanksgiving baby. Ammah and Ba-ba love you more than anything, more than words can say
Also- yes, we took about a jillion pictures...but none of them are digital (no digital camera handy, dui bu qi!!!)
