Gavin Joseph arrived Friday June 15th at 3:44pm via c-section. Friday I went to the doc for my 3rd NST of the week. The second I saw the nurse I lost it. Broke down crying, told her I was sick of dealing with contractions that don't go anywhere, sick of the swelling, sick of my blood sugars being out of control. So she spoke to my dr and he thought with my blood sugars being out of control it would justify to him that I should deliver early. I came back later that morning to have an amnio done to check his lungs. If they werent ready then I would have no choice but to wait until the 27th. Around 1:30 thrybcalled to say he was goodnto go and to getbto the hospital. I wasbstill at work. So I called my husband and found someone to pick up my DD and my suitcase and I headed to the hospital. I got there at 2, my husband got there at 3 and Gavin was born at 3:44!he was huge for only being 37 weeks weighing 9lbs. 11oz and he's 20 3/4" long.

Everything was going fine until today and his bilirubin came back at 19.3 so he's under the lights and I don't believe they'll let him come home tonight with me. I'm heartbroken and overly emotional and he looks so lonely in that incubator all by himself. I know that it's something so small that I shouldnt be complaining but it's hard not to be able to hold him when I want to.

Thank goodness they delivered you - what a big baby! Wow! So happy he is healthy & you're right, being under the lights is minor. Just embrace his healthiness, Mama. This is a minor bump in the road! Congratulations!
