Baby Has Arrived!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Siobhan Cole was born on Thursday, April 26, weighing in at 7 lbs., 2 oz. Everything went very quickly and great labor-wise, opposite of last time (26-hour labor that time - yuck). I managed to get through without an epidural or any pain meds, and I think that really, really helped me recover quickly.

Siobhan (pronounced sha-VON) is quite healthy but very sleepy, which is probably good for me. She's just an angel. I had no POTS-related problems during delivery and in the day after (except that I couldn't sleep at all the first 24 hours, which may be normal, due to adrenaline overdrive!).

Unfortunately, I am better off pregnant than not. About two days ago the POTS fun began again, like it did after my last pregnancy. However, I know what's going on this time, and it's not as severe for whatever reason. But it looks like I'll have to restart my beta blocker by next week if my heart rate doesn't settle down. I'm running in the 130s when up and walking, and 80s and 90s at rest. I'm going to try to up my fluids, change diet a bit, add some supplements and see if I get any results first before restarting the meds.

I will try to post some pictures later today when I figure out how! Maybe I can e-mail them to you, Katherine, to put on the faces page?

Congratulations! What a beautiful name! I was thinking about you when I woke up this morning--so it is good to see how things are going! I am glad labor and delivery went so smoothly. Hopefully the POTS symptoms will settle down. Post partum is a time of so many hormonal fluxes unfortunately.

Yes, send photos to dinetphotos@yahoo.com

I'm sorry to hear that the POTS is getting worse again. I hope you can get the rest you need and get some symptoms under control again.

Take care and rest well!
