Looks like my little Scorpio decided he really wanted to be a Virgo, instead. Little man made his entrance into the world at 5:52am yesterday, the 19th. I went into spontaneous labor about 2am, skipping early labor and straight into active, with contractions 45 seconds apart and 2 minutes long and they progressed rapidly from there. Around 4-ish I started to have the pink, mucousy discharge and knew we needed to get to the hospital fast. Arrived at about 4:45am and was quickly checked... I was complete! Devereaux Garrett came out about an hour later. He went to the NICU, accompanied by my husband, while the doula stayed with me.
He started out on a vent, but was able to weaned off of it after about 6ish hours and is now in an oxygenated hood. They hope to start tube feeding him today with the colostrum I've been expressing and if he continues to do well, I may be able to hold him today.
He's a big boy, especially for being 32w4d. He's 6lbs even and 18.5". Truly looks like a full-termer, just doesn't have the lungs of one.
