Thanks for keeping everyone updated, Tabitha!

Finnegan James Ronald was born via c/s October 12 at 10:21pm. 7lbs 10ozs and 19 1/4 inches long. Still not sure why he wouldn't come down...he actually moved UP some (-1 to -2), even though my ctx were strong and coming about 2.5 minutes apart for 4 hours. He did have a true knot in his cord (which I wasn't surprised about since he had been having post ctx decels) and a largish head (14.5 cm). I apparently have a lot of really bad scarring from my first 2 c/s and the ectopic repair surgery, it took them quite awhile to get the whole surgery done. My lower uterine segment is apparently "paper thin" too. He swallowed a bunch of crud so his 1 min apgar was 3 and it took him a few minutes to start crying, but once they got him cleaned out his 5 minute was a 9. It took about 2.5 hours after he was born until I got to hold him, which isn't that bad considering the surgery took about an hour and a half due to all my scarring. Thankfully he was still alert and nursed great and then slept for a good three hours! He's nursing well and I'm not in too much pain. I'll post some pics later!

Congratulations!!! Welcome Finnegan!!! I'm so glad you were able to nurse him before he passed out! I wish you a speedy recovery and take care!

Super crunchy Mama to DS1, DS2, DD and wanting a bunch more!  We homeschool, bed share, homebirth and baby wear. We're attached, we only cloth diaper and we don't vax. There's a lot more to us than that, but it won't all fit.

He is beautiful. I want to scoop him up and give him a cuddle.
So happy everyone is fine.

Children deserve the respect of puzzling it out.
