View Full Version : Baby Hailey

I decided to make a separate thread rather than take up the "How do you feel" one.

Recap:
Kelli's due date was Friday so on Monday night her midwife decided to induce. There wasn't really any rush but I guess she just didn't want Hailey to become too big and cause a more difficult birth.

Monday night they gave Kelli something to help thin the cervix. By Tuesday, not much had changed so they gave Kelli another dose of the cervix medicine.

Wednesday: The cervix had thinned but Kelli was only 1.5cm dilated. They started her on Pitocin to cause contractions and hopefully help her dilate more. She spent almost a full day with very painful contractions but no progress on the dilation or thinning of the cervix. Around 10pm Wednesday night they decided to take her off the Pitocin and try to let her sleep.

Thursday: Still no change. They sent us home. If Kelli doesn't dilate more and go into full labor naturally they will induce again on Monday night. Kelli is having contractions but they're spread out. She's very uncomfortable so I'm just trying to help her relax. The only thing that seems to help is sitting in a tub of warm water.

Thank you all for the support and well wishes. Thanks to Amy for her information. I'll keep you posted as much as I can when things change.

I know it's really rough right now for Kelli and your support will be something she will remember and cherish. Hopefully you can both get some decent sleep tonight in your lovely memory foam bed and maybe things will get going on their own tomorrow. This is not at all uncommon.

Take care of you both, make sure you eat and stay hydrated and keep her hydrated. Walking, hot showers with the spray on her lower back, warm baths, etc is basically the best medicine right now. Your midwife is doing everything I would want done for me with all that I know. Hailey is definitely worth all the pain and frustration but you know that already.

Kelli's in a lot of pain tonight but the contractions are too far apart to go to the hospital. The only thing that makes her comfortable is a warm bath. Problem is, the hot water heater can't keep up so I'm heating water on the stove and adding it to the tub to keep her warm. I feel bad for her. She's a real trooper but I can tell she's hurting. Hopefully she'll go into full labor soon. This half-way stuff is terrible.

Thanks to Chuck and Amy for helping with the updates. When we went back to the hospital Friday at 2am, we went in a hurry so I didn't take my laptop. Here's what happened:

On Thursday around 10am they sent us home since nothing was progressing. However, Kelli's contractions didn't really stop even though she was off the picotin. Throughout the day, they became stronger and more painful (I updated part of that before we rushed out). Around 2am, she got her midwife on the phone and was told to get back to the hospital. Her contractions were 2 minutes apart and very strong.

Once at the hospital, they checked and she was only 3cm dilated. However, Hailey was all the way down (at zero for you nurses) and her thinning was 100%. They gave Kelli some morphine for the pain and it was just more waiting.

Kelli was checked from time to time but never progressed past 3cm. Around 8am the midwife (Karen) came in. Still only 3cm. Around 10am Kelli was in a lot of pain so they allowed her one more dose of morphine to ease the pain. More waiting.

Around 2pm, I was nodding off in a chair and Kelli's mom was sitting in the room with us. Kelli was sitting in a rocking chair. Two nurses rushed into the room and said the baby's heartbeat was low. They put her on the bed and started adjusting her position. Then Karen came in and tried to physically adjust the position of the baby. The heartbeat came back, but only for a couple seconds. They called someone about prepping for emergency C-section.

It seemed like people came out of the walls. Suddenly people were sprinting down the hall towards the operating room. They asked Kelli if she could walk. She said "yes" and they had her hop up and she practically jogged in rather than wait for a wheelchair. Her mom and I weren't allowed to go in because we weren't prepped. It was horrifying. I was so afraid that my little girl wouldn't make it. I just stood there praying and on the verge of tears.

What seemed like two minutes later, a nurse came out and told us the baby was fine and she was crying. Turns out it was actually closer to 9 minutes total, 5 once they had Kelli on the table. When they opened to doorway to the operating room I could hear little Hailey crying. It was the sweetest sound I've ever heard.

Hailey Jean Everland was born at 2:03pm on May 14th. She weighed 8 lbs and 6ozs and was 20" long. She's perfect. It turns out her umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice and that's why her heart stopped. Both Kelli and Hailey are doing fine now.

I'm a very blessed and happy man. Big thanks to the nurses, Karen Shields and Dr. O'Flynn who did the C-section.

And that's why no one should EVER have a baby at home on purpose. Even with a healthy normal pregnancy you never know what might happen and you have mere minutes to save the life of the baby and sometimes the mom. Ok, off my soapbox....

I'm glad everything turned out so well. She's gorgeous, Mike. You and Kelli did good.

the cord was wrapped around my oldests neck as well. she was already out, too late for a c section but thankfully Karen was able to remove it before anything happened..........

karen is a blessing, all the labor & delivery nurses are a blessing the doctor is a blessing and now, of course, Hailey Jean is a blessing! :)

Getting into Hailey's 3rd day outside the womb. She's awesome. We already heard a distinct "MAMA" in the middle of a screaming fit. That's right. My newborn is a genius and can already talk. :) The breastfeeding can be challenging and sometimes she cries just for the heck of it. Swaddling, turning her on her side, swaying/jiggling and all that helps sometimes, but not every time. Hearing her cry is OK with me. At least I know she's breathing and strong.

The breastfeeding gets easier. Shoot by 3 months of age if Kelli gets her boob anywhere near Hailey's mouth and she's hungry, Hailey will latch herself on and get her own groceries. And Mike, if you're not careful she may try to latch onto you too!

My son was a crier. A baby swing saved us all. He loved that swing.

When we decided to name her Hailey I thought it would be cool to nickname her "Hailstorm". On the night she was born there was a wicked storm and apparently quite a bit of hail.

How appropriate is that? We don't get hailstorms around here very often.

I was messing with my new ipod clicking on all the features and was on youtube and it had this video on breastfeeding with Dr. Jack Newman. It's just a short clip, but I thought it was interesting--more to it than maybe people realize. My sister breastfed and also used a breast pump (which allowed daddy to feed baby too and was great for when she had to go back to work).

**WARNING** (does show a breast but in a beautiful way "mother & child") :)

First night went pretty well. I barely noticed when Kelli got up to feed her a few times through the night. She did have a screaming fit at 5am. I normally get up at 5:30 anyway so it wasn't too bad. I'm tired today but it's mostly because we went to bed so late, not because of being woken up a lot. Just had a lot to do last night and the next thing we know, it was after midnight.

The one thing I've heard a lot of new parents comment on is the sleep deprivation. Some have said it lasts the first two years. My sis says she hasn't slept well since Caleb's birth (he's 9 1/2 now). It must be an internal mom thing--always listening for your child.

05-18-2010, 02:16 PM
Mike do you get some time off work to be at home with the baby? If so, you should be the one getting up with her in the night so that Kelli can get her rest to heal faster.

I switched jobs the day they induced her. Monday was my orientation for my new job. (Actually, same exact job but I'm now a federal employee instead of a contractor.) I had zero vacation and sick time accrued since I'd only worked one day. I was granted advanced sick leave to be with her from Tuesday through Friday. I came back to work yesterday.

So Yes, they gave me time off but I now have -32 hours of sick time so I'm not taking any more time off if I can help it. It will take me about 4 months to get back to zero.

Besides, I'm not equipped to feed Hailey. :laugh:

In Babe, the farmer says "That'll do pig. That'll do."
Not sure about Shrek reference.

Best part of "Babe" is when he decides to start singing for no reason after the lamb gets taken away. "La la la, la la la".

Hailey update: 3 nights at home. So far, still hasn't been too bad at night. That's really thanks to Kelli. She's quick to wake up and take Hailey into the living room to feed her.

I didn't sleep as well last night but I think that's more because I'm frustrated over a plumbing leak that I wasn't able to fix. It actually leaks worse now that I've replaced the parts. I need to pick up more supplies and try again after golf tonight. Otherwise, no hot showers without a soaking wet floor. This doesn't really affect Hailey though. She gets her warm water from the kitchen sink.

I'm glad things are going well with Hailey, she's probably already settling into a routine, eh? Is Kelli's mom close by, just in case?

The plumbing on the other hand...my husband tears his hair out over that kind of thing, good luck, Mike.

Kelli's mom lives about 30 minutes away. My mom is only 5 minutes. Both have been helping her out as much we let them.

Guys at the gym today were joking with me. They asked if I already have her flipping little tires and swinging a mini sledge hammer.

Shrek was referencing BABE. "That'll do pig."

I never saw Babe so it is a Shrek original for me. :laugh:

Hey, sleeping and pooping burn a lot of calories; she needs to recharge a lot. When she starts to walk, you need to make her a "baby" course.

And she will ALWAYS be your baby!

I remember a special moment right after I had my oldest daughter. Jessie was only a week old I was staying at my parent's house so my mom could help me with her.

I was sleeping in my old room with Jessie in her little portable crib. It was late at night when my parents finally went to bed and I heard my them talking as they came up the stairs. My mom told my dad to go see if the baby was sleeping.

( my back was to the door, and honestly, I was so tired that I just stayed quiet. I didn't feel like starting a conversation and I also didn't want to risk waking Jessie up! )

So, quietly as he could, he came into my room, looked into the crib........
then came over and looked at me.........( my eyes were closed)

and whispered to my mom, "Yup! Both of the babies are sleeping!":laugh:

Me too. :wub: Mike, I think that's the first one you've posted where she's smiling....soooo big. :) I think she looks like Kelli there; she looks like you when she's got her serious face on. :laugh:

I told her about it beforehand. Now I don't have to wear a ring. I was never much of a jewelry guy.

Hailey was perfect on the flight and rides to Sarasota. No fussing at all. Of course, now that it's bed time she's not tired at all and wants to stay up. Can't complain. I was a little nervous about taking her on the plane. I was afraid she'd scream and cry the whole time and annoy everyone on the plane.

So far I've got her on a high protein, medium carb diet. She can do about 50 squats, 100 calf raises and is able to carry aound large bags of air. We're still working on pull ups. She can do them to get from her back to her feet, but hanging free can't get her chin over the bar yet.

For Hailey's birthday I bought her a new Toyota RAV4 and got a chaeffuer to drive her around (Kelli).

Kelli's car (1999 Altima) was no longer reliable. It also didn't have the LATCH system for the baby car seat. I'm sure the seatbelt connection was sufficient but I feel MUCH better using the LATCH. That seat doesn't move at all now.

Bonnie
05-15-2011, 04:28 PM
Nice gift, Mike! I know you feel better having the LATCH. When my sister was pregnant, David and I were buying a new vehicle and I was like, "Yeah, but does it have the LATCH for the baby seat?" I was already thinking ahead about him riding in our car. :laugh:
