I am a MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Recommended Posts

Austin Michael arrived on Thursday at 5:01 p.m.! He weighed 7 lbs. 14 3/4 oz. (now he weighs 7 lbs. 3 1/2 oz.) and he is 20 1/2 inches long. We are so happy with our new baby!!!! He is a very good sleeper so far, hardly ever cries, and is doing really well with breastfeeding.


I had to be at the hospital to be induced on Thursday at 6 a.m. They estimated him to weigh 8 lbs. at my appt. the week before, and because of having gestational diabetes, they knew he could be very big. At my appt. last Tuesday, I was dialted to 2, my cervix was soft, and he was 50% effaced. I was in labor from 9:00 until about 3:30. All was going well until his heart rate started to go down when I was having contractions. I was dialted to about 7 or 8, but he wasn't continuing to drop. The doctor decided at about 4:00 that I needed to have a C-section. They wheeled me into the operating room around 4:45, prepped me, brought Kevin in, and he was born only 16 minutes later!!! I couldn't believe how quick it was! It was so nice to hear that cry!!! They found out the reason his heart rate was going down was because the cord was wrapped around his neck and his leg.


We are SOOO blessed to have our beautiful baby boy! We get to go home tomorrow, and we are so ready!
