FC: Jade Twohy's First Year December 27th, 2009 - 2010
1: Jade Lively Twohy Date: December 27th, 2009 Time: 4:39pm Weight: 6lb 12oz Height: 18.5" Blood Type: O+ Zodiac Sign: Capricorn Hair: Blonde Eyes: Blue Hospital: Little Company of Mary Birth City: Torrance Los Angeles County, California, USA
2: December 27, 2009 (Sunday) - Jade Twohy's Birthday Mommy started having pains at 3am, small contractions. She woke up Daddy by 4am when she was having contractions every 5 minutes. The contractions started coming sooner as the time past. We finally decided to go to the hospital, we arrived at 6am at Little Company of Mary in Torrance, 10 minutes from our Manhattan Beach home. The Triage Nurse checked Mommy and said she was only 2 cm, Mommy had to be 3 cm before the nurse could check us into our own private room to prepare for my birth. So Mommy walked around the waiting room, there's was only one other couple there. By 8:30am Mommy was 3 cm and we were checked into our own private room. It was a nice room, there was a pull out sofa for Daddy and we had cable tv and air control, very comfy. It was Sunday football so I could hear the games in the background. By 9:30am Mommy was 4 cm and decides to get an epidural. The pain went away, it was smooth sailing from there until the push at the end. We had a real nice nurse named Iris who took care of us. We were her only patient, she started her shift at 7am, so she was with us all day. Great service! She helped with the contractions and monitored Mommy throughout the day. The Doctor came in at noon and broke Mommy's water and said Mommy was 5 cm, 10 cm is needed for birth. The Doctor predicted Mommy would be closer to giving birth to me around 3pm and was only 10 minutes away with a phone call since he was on call on a Sunday. So Nurse Iris continued to monitor Mommy and helped Mommy start the pushing process at 3pm. When Daddy saw the top of my head Nurse Iris called the Doctor to come in. At 4:20p the Doctor came in and prepared for the birth with two more nurses like routine business. After about four tries during contractions the doctor said he needed more room for the head to come out. He said he was going to form an episiotomy; before Mommy could say no, he made the cut, he promised to stitch Mommy up better than before. Btw, that's the only pain Mommy has left over from the birth is the stitches to make more room for me to pop out. 2 minutes later, my head was sticking out, I was taking a peek. Daddy was amazed, watching and helping Mommy all day and seeing my head fully poke out. One more minute, my whole body slid out. 4:39pm I was born, Jade Lively Twohy. Hello World! I was born as a football Sunday Baby! Daddy cut the cord, I got bathed and vitamin K shot and received drops for my eyes. I was weighed at 6 lbs, 12 oz, and measured at 18 1/2 inches. The Doctor stitched Mommy up and took out the placenta. He was off the clock by 5pm, amazing, rock star doctor, in and out. At 8pm they moved us to a new room which is part of the baby recovery rooms. We had our own private room which was similar to the birth room with a pull out bed for Daddy and cable tv and climate control. It was very comfy also. I never left Daddy and Mommy since I was healthy and never had to go to the nursery. Security was great, I had a low-jack device strapped to my foot. Little Company of Mary gave our family top service and Mommy had great meals and Daddy never left the hospital. 5 stars, A+ for Little Company of Mary for everything, and we are so thankful the birth was safe and there was no complications. We were so happy with the staff we gave boxes of chocolates to all the nurses and the nurses ended up giving us not 1 but 3 gift bags at the end. Yeah!
4: December 28, 2009 (Monday) Mommy and Daddy got acquainted with me all day and night, hardly no sleep for them while spending the day at the hospital. I got to watch Monday Night Football with Daddy and the Lake Show! Papa and Nana sent us flowers before the start of MNF. They found us at the hospital, super cool. December 29, 2009 (Tuesday) We were released from the hospital at 1pm, and a Priest gave us a blessing since Little Company of Mary is a private Catholic Hospital. We were outta there! I got to drive in the car and listen to PJ (Pearl Jam) on the stereo, I loved it. Daddy had the California Highway Patrol pre-install both my baby seats for both cars, so it was easy to get into my seat. I got to see my new home. It was so cozy, I had everything there ready for me: toys, clothes, needed items, etc. I could see waves from my bassinet. I love the ocean and being at home. I can't wait to crawl in the sand and ride the swings in front of our house. Daddy and I watched the Lakers beat Golden State on tv, "Lake Show!" HOME SWEET HOME. December 30, 2009 (Wednesday) I got to see Poppy and Granny Maz in Australia on Skype on the computer with our web cam, they love me, it was fun chatting with them on video. Skype is cool for overseas. I met Lara in person, Kelly's Best Friend from Australia today who was in town for one day, she's an airline stewardess. She was very nice, she hung out with me for a few hours before going to the airport. She was my very first visitor! Mommy is making sure guests are not sick before they visit, I can't wait to meet everyone else! December 31, 2009 (Thursday) - New Year's Eve I got to see Uncle Kyran and Aunty Karyn (my Godparents) and my cousin Slater in Australia on Skype on the computer with our web cam. They said I was cute. It's new year's eve, we are getting excited for the new year. Bring on 2010 and all its joy!
