I have to call him sweet boy because we haven't named him just yet. We're working on it.

So I arrived at the hospital on 9/15, and was hooked with the pit going by 6:30 AM. Everything was going just fine, and by 10 AM I was 3 cm and 80% effaced and ready for the epi. They stuck me at least 5 times with the numbing medicine, but everytime she tried to thread the cath in, she was hitting bone/nerves. Not fun. Finally after about 15 min, she gave me a break, and when she tried again, she was able to get it done. The pain relief was perfect, and I settled in for the rest of a pain-free day. Within 15 min, I wasn't feeling well and fainted. Turns out my BP dropped (from the epi) and they used smelling salts to get me back, and I was so surprised that there were at least 15 people (nurses and docs) in my room, trying to get my BP back up. They were finally able to stablize me, but my sweet boy's heart rate wouldn't come back up.

They tried to get his HR back up for about 10 min, but it wouldn't come up, so they took me for an emergency c-sect. They topped off my epi, and it was fine until she hit my uterus and I felt EVERYTHING. They totally knocked me out, and the next thing I know my sweet boy was over in the warmer looking perfect. He was 7.9 lbs and 20 in, and just gorgeous. I am beyond in love with him, and feel like I have been blessed a million times over.

Here's a pic of my sweet, no-named boy.
