He was born on Monday, November 7, 2011 at 8:12pm. He weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces and was 19 inches long.
With my blood pressure being so high my doctors thought it was best to deliver yesterday morning. We talked about doing a c-section because they didn't want to put me or baby through the stress of going from 0 to 10 with everything going on, but she decided to check me just in case. Guess what? I was 5 centimeters dilated already! I really thought she was joking when she said it, but nope, I definitely was in active labor and had no clue :). They said he knew he needed to come early!
I'll write a more detailed birth story soon, but wanted to at least get something written down now. I only had to push for 15 minutes and he kind of caught everyone in the room off guard when he just slid out, haha!
Because he is a premie we have had a few issues. Mainly his sugars have been on the low side. Because of that I haven't been able to breastfeed, they put him on formula right away so they could monitor how much he was eating. And just about 45 minutes ago they decided they needed to start him on an IV to get him more sugar :(. I did meet with a lactation consultant who is going to have me start pumping breast milk which I'm happy about.
I'll be in the hospital for at least two more days, and hopefully Harry can join us at home this weekend!!
