He's here and he's perfect! After labor stalled they found that he was sunnyside up hence the reason for my horrible back pain. I made it to 7-8 and got the epi. My BP was super low and baby wasn't happy and his oxygen levels kept dropping and they couldnd't figure out why.... I had meds for my BP and lots of IV fluids (some with sugar) because I hadn't had much the day before and because i had gotten sick and was still nauseous.

Doc said was going to try and roll him and around 8:30 and I was feeling ready to push. The nurse had me do a test push right before and then told me not to because he was so close and called the dr. immediately. She showed up ASAP and informed me Koa had rolled right all on his own! I only had to push one time. The nurses were telling me, "Look down, look down!" I was confused because I had hardly pushed, but they were already pulling him out and putting him on my tummy. Turns out his oxygen levels had been dropping because he was all tangled up in his cord. They did the delayed the cord clamping and DH cut the cord

Both of us are doing fine. He's a champ at breastfeeding. I'm still running on about 30 minutes of sleep and I'm sore down there. I tore once (2nd degree). He's got the cutest dimple on his chin and great big feet.

Oh and they LIFTED the no visitors under 16 policy YESTERDAY!!!! DD got to meet him! All is good!
Sorry the pictures are so big. I don't know how to make them smaller.

Born at 9:25AM 7lbs 4oz and 18" long......Here he is:

He's so handsome. I'm so glad he rolled for you. Your DD is so cute. I love that she got to hold her brother. Hope you have a smooth recovery.
