keaton was born at 10:51pm at 37w3d june 27. he weighed 7 lbs 5oz and 20 inches long and is perfect in every way!

i went in for one of my nst tests for the week on tuesday and was sent in to be delivered due to my bp spiking and staying up. i was diagnosed with pre e a few weeks ago... my doc was certain id have to have a csection!

my original plan was a non medicated birth with no epi etc. they started me on pitocin (didnt want!!) and i went from 2pm tues to 6:30am wed with no progresion (2 cm and 70% effaced) so they broke my water. i went from 2cm to 4cm quickly but stayed there. they also had me on magnesium for seisures/high bp. my bp was spiking dangerously and once again he said cection! i said no epi. no csection. and he told me it was eithet an epi to bring my bp down or they needed to get baby out asap. so epi it was :-( it numbed my belly but nothing below it. so i felt most everything anyways! but it did bring my bp to 126/58 which is wayyy lower than before. after i finally got to 10cm they had me push and it took 1.5 hrs but finally he was born! safe and sound.

even though my birth plan didnt go the way i wanted, im just so glad nothing happened to me or him.
and i didnt need a csection. woot! they threatened soooo many times. the on call doc called my doc and he was in shock apparently. he "thought he was leaving her with a section"
