Maxwell Aaron is here!!!
Born on 5/11 @ 3:42pm
5lbs 4oz and 18.9inches

I went to the MFM on 5/11 and after my Ultrasound I met with the dr who told me baby wasn't growing as he should and I needed to head to the hospital to deliver.
He said the placenta might not be working properly due to my Hypertension and baby needed to come out before it failed.
I wasn't dilated at all so they put that pill they put in your cervix but it triggered contractions and baby's heartbeat stared dropping way too early.
So my dr came in and told me she had to do a csection. At the OR the anesthesiologist tried twice to give me an epidural but couldn't get through the spine so I had to go under general anesthesia.
They put my folly while awake ????
So I went under, baby went to NICU and I was bedridden for 24 hours and dying to meet my baby. I got a call from the NICU nurse for the status and that was all... I didn't understand a thing because I was so agitated. I asked my dr for sleeping meds to get through to the morning.
I was finally able to meet him at 9am the next day.
We're still at the hospital. I'll be going home tomorrow and Max might or might not come home with me.
He has been progressing really quickly. Feeding tube and oxygen came off in less than 24hours. Today I found out his 48 hour culture was cleared so he came off antibiotics. We're now waiting for him to get to ingesting 40ml of milk and tolerating it. This morning dr said tomorrow or the next day so we'll see how the night goes.
I'm so in love with my little guy!
