Hi ladies,
Well, my C section is scheduled for tomorrow morning bright and early but my little man had other plans. I went into labor Thursday night and Friday in the early morning hours, there he was! Harrison Dean was born at 2:27am, weighing in at 6.2 lbs and 18.5 inches long. It was a very dramatic and scary experience for sure. I went in to L and D to get checked b/c I didn't feel right and thought I might be having contractions. Within an hour, they picked up significantly and I was in a lot of pain. I am not a VBAC candidate, so I knew they were going to do the C that night. We thought we had time for DH to join me a bit later while he waited for the in laws to arrive to watch our kids. Well, he had just gotten to the hospital when Harrison's heart beat dropped drastically and a ton of nurses and my OB rushed in and began doing all sorts of things to get his heart to stabilize. It didn't work that well, so I was rushed in to the OR and he was born shortly after. The cord was around his neck three times and it had a knot in it. They were able to stabilize him pretty quick once they got him out, but I truly thought we were going to lose him. It was terrifying! I am so glad I followed my instincts and went in even though I wasn't sure it was labor. He is an adorable little peanut, so small! He is latching well and nursing better than my other kids ever did, so I am hopeful we can BF this time for longer. I am here until Tuesday, so when I get home I can post pics of him. He looks just like my son Owen as a baby. Hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to see your little ones when they arrive.

Wow that's very scary! I'm glad it all worked out well. I love the name you've chosen, Harrison is a family name of mine, and my oldest son's middle name.
