Baby Keoni Isaac is here!!


Tuesday, 22nd, I went to my 38 week checkup and turned out I had high blood pressure 150/86, they waited an hour and rechecked it was up to 152/92. OB sent me labor & delivery for blood pressure observation, well turned out it didn't want to go down (160/90 7 161/98) so I was admitted to have my baby boy. After a night on Cervadil, Mag Sulfate and some Stadol, I felt so drugged up that it scared to me so all I could do is close my eyes & sleep. The next morning (Wed. 2/23) they took out the Cervadil and I was only 1cm 40% -4. OB walks in and breaks my water and we discuss shoulder dystocia (since Evan has shoulder dystocia -stuck in birth canal) and the risk involved as well as risk in c-sections. Mel & I decided to go with the a c-section. I really didn't have time to call any of my family to let them know I was having a c-section because they told me I had 15 minutes til my c-section but of course I got 1 call into my mom.

During the section, I thought I would feel something but I didn't. That spinal they gave me was AWESOME, I couldn't feel anything when the anesthesiologist said lots of pressure & pulling. I was also kinda out of it. I was falling a sleep and the anesthesiologist kept saying 'Deep Breaths' over and over again. They told me I was so tired because of the mag sulfate I had been taking. After the c-section, my blood pressure was normal and stayed that way so I didn't have to be put back on mag. sulfate, thanfully!!!

Keoni Isaac was born at 10:11am, weighing 8lbs 8oz and 20 in. (Ultrasound tech measured him to be 8lbs 6oz. She was off by 2oz, very accurate tech, she told me to tell her his weight so she will know how accurate it can be. During the ultrasound, I asked her about her accuracy and she said she didn't know and that measuring babies this large is hard to measure & get accurate)

We are doing well and were sent home on the 2nd day which everyone was kinda surprised at but I am feeling very good for getting cut open!!

  10. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
