Isaac James is Here!
Just wanted to let everyone know I FINALLY had that baby!  I was 38 weeks, 2 days and luckily went into labor on my own (was going to be induced at 39 weeks).  Only had labor for about 3 hours until I had the epidural at 5 cm. I never progressed from there and he was in an incredible amount of distress, was born not breathing because he had produced and then swallowed so much malconium (sp?) while in distress.  The doctors said we were lucky to have the c-section when we did or we probably would've lost him.  He is absolutely precious and had his intestinal surgery (had gastroschesis) the night he was born in like 10 minutes because he weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz!!!  The doctors were expecting him to be ideally 4-6 lbs if he could, because babies with that are born so small I guess.  Yah... he was not small  :)
