Default baby is here...prayers please

first I want to say that the baby is doing ok. he is on the machine to help his lungs, iv, and all the monitors in the incubator in the NICU but he is ok. He weighed 5lbs 3 oz and was 18 1/4 inches long.

I was only 33 weeks pregnant today.

well..i have not been feeling right this whole week so i called the dr yesterday about low blood sugar..he said to keep an eye and call him today

went to dinner at my brother's last home at 9...went to bed at water broke at 1:30!!
We got to the hospital around 2:50am and the baby was born at 7:30am REGULAR BIRTH!!!! since i had two previous c-sections i was going to of course have a csection...well..the contractions were 2 minutes apart in the car..thought I was going to die since i never felt a contraction before....dr checked me just for the heck of of it and i was already 5 cent. went to 7 quickly and he said that if i wanted we could do a 6:15 I am 10 cent and ready to push...i was sooo scared since i never went through this before at all......i pushd for about 20 minutes...we tooka break and pushed for about 15 mnutes more and the baby was born just like drugs to enduce labor or anything. I really thought I was going to be wheeled right from the parking lot to the OR...which was all ready for me when i got there...but it just didn't happen like that.

it was so amazing and kind of unbelievable...none of the nurses and the dr could believe it since i neve dilated at all with Grace and never even tried with Anthony.

since Eric grabbed the bag that we packed yesterday afternoon it didn't have the camera or anything in it so SIL came at 5am and brought th evideo and regular camera. SHe stayed in the room the whole time also. Then at 11:00 my brother picked up my mom and kids and they came for a little bit to visit with me...they just left.

so if you could just keep us in your thoughts and prayers it would be appreciated. The neonatologist says he will be here at least 3-4 weeks..since he was born so early even though he seems to be doing well.

I won't be able to hold him or anything until he's disconnected from the breathing machine so it's hard but we're hopful that he is going to be ok

Oh, Susan what an event! I'm sure he'll be okay. That is exactly what I'm trying to avoid myself. I just posted about my ordeal yesterday. I'll pray for your little one, please pray for me and mine.

SUSAN!! WOW!! I can't BELIEVE I'm reading this!

Congratulations on his birth, the VBAC, and being such a strong woman!!

We'll be praying for him and for you. I think he must have been so excited to see all of the new stuff he got last weekend at the shower!!

Please keep us posted when you have a chance and let us know if we can do anything to help.
