Lucas Ryne - With Photo!

Thanks for all the well wishes and congrats guys! He's a delicious little man.

Long story short - I was in labor from 9:30 a.m. on. I was doing well - using the exercise ball, walking around, eating lightly and lots of fluids. By 7:30 p.m. my contractions were 3 minutes apart and the dr. told us to go to the hospital. By the time we got there, I was in agony. The pain was so bad that I was vomitting pretty badly. So I had to ask for an epidural. Once I got that, the pain was gone and I just tried to reserve my strength for pushing. But I got to 8 cm and didn't progress for a few hours, so the dr. wanted to do a c-section. I wasn't thrilled, but in my heart I felt it was the right thing to do for the baby's safety. C-section went well (a little scary, but hey, what surgery isn't?) and Lucas was born at 6:46 a.m. Friday, December 14. He had a little trouble transitioning and was in the NICU for 5 hours, but then joined us in our room and was kissed and hugged!

He's nursing really well and is a tough little guy - lifts his head up to look at everything and changing him is like a wrestling match. We couldn't be happier and are just absolutely blessed!!!



Edited also to add - he was 7lb 8 oz!!!

    Beautiful!
    I know you're glad it's over & now the fun really begins! :wink:

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
    Let’s just stay together and tell the world to kiss our ass. ~P

    Ah...I just love a fresh new baby. He's adorable.

    Sounds like he might have been a little bit malpositioned. That's generally the case if you can get to 7-8 cms and then stall out. An epidural with a malpositioned baby is pretty much a recipe for c-sec, because an epidural causes a deep relaxation of the uterine muscle and baby can't really turn after that and if they can't turn, they can't get out. It's just the nature of epidurals and labor.

    I'm glad your baby is here and healthy and that you're recovering well. Take it easy and be good to yourself. It takes a while to feel back to yourself. Enjoy getting to know each other.

    How much did he weigh? I don't think you mentioned in this or the other thread.

    Congratulations! All these new births are making me want another one.

    Congratulations!

    Your labour/birth story sounds so similar to mine it's scary. By the time I got to the hospital, my contractions also made me vomit. I also progressed to 8 cm and then wound up with a c-section.

    Anyway - enjoy your first Christmas with your sweet little Lucas!

    Yup! Daddy is originally from Chicago. So we had either Ted Sandberg or Lucas Ryne!!

    I couldn't see it at first either, so i right clicked on the red X, clicked properties, and copied and pasted the address into my browser window. Now, I see it when I come back to the thread.
