  • Well I just wanted to give everyone a quick update. We came in to be induced Wednesday morning and I was about 3 cm, but he was up very high. I started a little pitocin and he started to make his way down. At about 3 they broke my water and that got things going very fast. Around 6 40 they came in and checked me and I was 7 cm. 5 minutes later they came in because his heart rate was dropping. All of a sudden I felt like I had to push. They broke down the bed partially, didn't even have a bag under me, the doctor wasn't even there and I was pushing. He was born about 5 minutes later.
    This was good because his heart rate had dropped from 156 to 61, but awful because he was so suprised and not ready at all. He wouldn't start breathing and they had to get the NICU staff in for some intervention. He is doing wonderfully now! His Apgar went from 2 to 9 in a matter of minutes. My poor DH was so overwhelmed between worrying about me and then seeing our baby struggling to breath.
    His name is Samuel Brian and he was 8lb 8oz.
    I will post some pictures when I get home! Thanks for your well wishes...
