birth update
Just wanted to let everyone know my son, Russell Allen, was born on Wednesday.  I was planning on a natural unmedicated birth as most of you know, I woke up at 7am with contractions. We left for the hospital around 3 when my contractions were about 4 mins apart.  When I got to the birth center they monitored me for a bit anf said he looked a little sleepy and dif several things to stimulate him. They then had my walk for 2 hours. When I got back rromm from walking they hooked me back up to the fetal monitor,,, during 2 of my contractions his hr dipped into the 60s and I wastold labor was no lonter an option,  I needed to have a c section. It took less then 30 mins after they decieed this before my son was born.turned out the cord was rapped around hid neck 3 times! After wards he started having trouble breathing and he was taken to the nicu. Turned out both his lungs collapsed. Thursday I held my son for the first time. They weaned him off his cpap and iv yesterday and today FINALLY we should be leaving the hospital together this evening.
