    As some of you know, I have been on bedrest since 20 weeks due to an emergent cerclage. It was a struggle to get me to 24 weeks- then 28 was the next milestone- had baby ayden at 29. I was laying in bed Sunday and my water broke! After being admitted to the hospital, I contracted a low grade fever, which my dr suspected to be an infection coming along after my water broke. He took out my cerclage and I went straight to 3cm dialated. After 7 hrs of Pitocin, I only dialated to 4cm and Ayden's heart rate dropped with every contraction- so they wheeled me in for a c section. I had Ayden at 5:13pm on monday, jan 24th. weighing 3lbs 8 0z and 16.5" everyone said he was a big boy for his age!! He came out of my belly screaming, and so far has had no complications. He is on cpap and is on very low oxygen (23%.. 21% is considered room air) He is a very healthy boy, he is slight jaundice but the uv light is helping. The neonatal dr. says he just needs to gain weight, maintain body temp and learn to feed and he can go home!! If I knew how to post pics I would!!! Thank you everyone for all the prayers and inspiration yall have given me throughout these hard times! Couldnt have done it without yall!!

    When you go to post (don't post quick reply, use the advanced button), scroll down (under the submit reply button) and click the "manage attachments" button and you can post pics that way.

    Congrats on your little man! Glad to hear he's doing well.
