NOTE: This is a new series I will slowly be working my way through. All of the posts will be linked on the NICU Mom Series page, so bookmark that page, share it, Pin it, and feel free to share your own experiences as well.
The day I had Mercy, I know many of you expected me to post about her birth, or at least share something in the day or so following. Instead, I went silent.
That morning, I was excited. The pregnancy had been hard. I was ready to have baby in my arms. We laughed and joked with the nurses – many of whom stayed over their shift to see if we had a boy or a girl. We chatted with my doctor who had become like an old friend who just happened to have delivered 4 of my children. It was my first scheduled c-section. I felt like finally I had control over the entire process, and it felt good.
