Sorry I've been MIA the past few days... things had gotten pretty crazy around here. First of all, the whole weekend the baby wasn't doing as good as it should have been, my placenta was showing more signs of acting badly, then two nights in a row my BP spiked really high again (170/110) So on the first night we were monitored in our regular room, and on the second night we were sent to the birth unit for observation, and then sent back to our room in the high risk ward because my BP leveled out with meds.... and the next morning, my Dr came in and we all decided we'd made it as far as this pregnancy would allow.

We made it to 30 weeks and 2 days! Declan Scott Joseph was born at 5:41 am by c-section on Wednesday September 29th. He weighed in at 3lb even, and measured 15 3/4" long. We started the day before with cervidil for cervix ripening, and mag sulfate to keep me from having a seizure/stroke (and the mag wasn't all that bad thankfully! I basically felt like I'd swallowed lava, and so the nurse gave me ice chips and a fan and I was all set!) and then at 1:30 am on the 29th we began pitocin and the Dr broke my water. Our little guy didn't fare so well during the stronger contractions, so they shut off the pitocin and then we had the calmest most laid-back c-section ever. The NICU team took their time with our little guy and it took them several tries to get him intubated.. he was too fiesty!

Scott went with the NICU team when they took Declan to his new "home", and got to watch them set him up with everything, then Scott took his and my folks and our DD into see the baby and back to visit me.. I was a little (ok, a lot) stoned on pain meds, but it was actually good to have visitors nonetheless. That night, the nurse pleaded my case to the OB's and they let me go see my little guy even while still on the mag sulfate... I had to be wheeled over in a chair, but that wasn't a problem at all . so more than 12 hours after he was born, I got my first glimpse of the little miracle that had grown inside me all this time! He looks soo much like his daddy, and even more like DD! I see little pieces of me in him too though... like my hands, and my attitude .

I've spent most of the day today in the NICU with my little "Ducky", and it's been wonderful to finally get to see him/touch him/hold him! (we each got to hold him skin-to-skin for 30 min today!) He is doing brilliantly, and full of attitude and fiestiness for such a little guy....

I'll update more tomorrow once I've had a little more sleep (something like 5 hours in the past 2 days...) and once I'm a little less emotional and blubbery...! Thanks to everyone for their prayers and wishes! I certainly believe in miracles, and now even more so that my little guy is not only here, but here and healthy!
