I got to have my VBAC and didnt have an epi or augment labor or anything. Don't know how the insurance will work out, but that is the least of my concerns. Turner is doing really well and has been latching on to nurse like a pro. They are still concerned that he isn't getting "enough" fluids, and he still has an IV supplimenting him, but theyd like to wean him off the IV soon...like in the next few days. But no resp. issues. He may need some photolight therapy, but I'll know more about that in the morning. They say they'll release me tomorrow but he'll probably have to stay for at least a week or two. I'm hoping not that long, but we shall see.
I wanted to thank everyone for their support and for taking the time to answer all my questions on this forum. (I still can't believe he came so early)!!!

I hope you are taking good care of yourself. It can't be easy seeing your little one in the NICU and spending so much time there yourself when you are recovering from birth. Congratulations on your augmentation-free VBAC. Hope Turner gets to come home soon.
I agree, he's a hefty little guy for being so early! Way to go!
