I finally got to meet my little guy yesterday afternoon at 2:13pm. After all the work he just wouldn't drop past -1, so me, my family and the doc on call sat down and discussed options and we decided on a c-section. He weighs in at 9lbs 4oz and is 21.25 inches long - and GORGEOUS.

His blood sugar is consistently reading low so they took him to the combo nursery/NICU last night to hopefully get that stabilized. I have basically had him latch on 2 times but he was pretty out of it and didn't get much. Hoping that will change as I can move around better and have him in room with me.

Pics and all the details soon!

Congratulations! Make sure you ask for an ibclc at the hospital to help you with breastfeeding if you need it! You'll need to start pumping soon if baby isn't inthe breast so your milk will come in.

Post pics soon!

My goodness! He does sound big for 37 weeks! Here's hoping that soon you'll have a post saying his blood sugar is stable and you two are on your babymoon, safe and comfy at home! Congratulations! And welcome baby Ronan!
