sorry for no caps but have one hand unavailable...
yesterday kiddo stopped moving around; i figured he had rolled over again and was just kicking my back. eventually got alarmed and headed to hospital for a check. nice solid hb so we thought it was okay...until the doc came in and said we had better deliver now, w/in next 30 minutes. he wasn't reacting at all really.
so much shock!
baby was still breech anyway so we went directly to the or for an emergency c section. the less said the better on that--not my cup of tea though! he was out quickly but no cries. tons of people kept filing in. they worked on him for what seemed eternity. finally heard some whimpering...it was terrifying.
his apgars were 1/7. some cpr was given, and he had to be intubated for a few minutes. they let me kiss him and he and dad went straight to nicu.
i don't know details yet--they think some sort of infection. he is doing much better, nice and rosy, but poor guy has multiple iv lines, one in his head. we'll talk to the ped later for more details. no clue what happened yet really. he'll be in nicu for a while i guess.
no name yet...we are waffling a bit. shellshocked still.
36w even. born soon after midnight, 7/3/11. 7lb 4.4oz, 20in.
he is beautiful. really truly beautiful.
