Well my baby boy decided to come early. I started having contractions on Wednesday night that continued on through Saturday morning. I didnt realize they were contractions at first, I just thought he was pushing in uncomfortable ways. I called the hospital Saturday morning and since I live an hour away they told me to come get checked. I got my daughter and husband and we hit the road thinking we would be there a few hours then dismissed to bedrest. I was checked when I got there and was dilated to a 2. An hour later I was at a 3 even after the medicine that was supposed to stop the contractions. Went in for the cesarean and he was born 8 weeks early at 2:10pm July 26 weighing 4pounds 4 ounces and 17 inches tall. He was careflighted 3 hours away and has the breathing tubes out. He is on a cpap and a feeding tube. I will get released tomorrow to go see him. I got to hold his hand before he left though. I don't know when I'll get to hold him but they said he should be released within 4-6 weeks!
Before breathing tubes were taken out.
My favorite picture because I can see more of his face. He's under blue lights to help with jaundice.
most recent picture. Tubes are out and he is taking to the pacifier well. Love my little man. Saying hello to the world. Can't wait to see him tomorrow.
