My birth story isn't all that glamourous!

I wasn't feeling all that well, and decided to go into L&D to get checked.

Upon getting hooked up to the monitors, Devin's hb was so fast, it wasn't registering. An u/s showed his little heart was beating extremely fast.

The doctor oncall from my practice was in a csection, so another doctor came in. She was trying to time the hb by her stopwatch, and she said it was up around 260! My doc came in, did another u/s and immediately decided on an emergency csection. She didn't want to wait for Alfie to get there. Thankfully, we only live 10 minutes from the hospital.

After this, everything happened so fast. I was in serious panic mode. There were so many people around me, I had no clue what was going on. By the time Alfie was let in the room, they had already started cutting me open!

Devin Myles Bowman was born at 7:18pm on 8/5/08. He was 34weeks 5 days gestional age. 5lbs 8oz and 17.5 inches long. Thankfully, his hb at birth was 160. Still no clue as to what was wrong. He had a little bit of a quick hb, but nothing to be concerned about.

He was taken directly to the NICU and we saw him about 2 hours later. Here are some pics of Devin from the next day.
