The little man is here

I went to the OB last Friday and ended up in Labor and Delivery for observation again. After 4 hours, my doctor decided I should have the baby. My blood pressure was staying high. I called D at 2p and told him we were shooting for 4:30p. Little man arrived at 5:35p. He spent 4hrs 15 min in the NICU due to fluid in his lungs he was having difficulty clearing. He was off the oxygen pretty quickly. It was heart wrenching not to hold him on the way back to L&D from the OR. At 10p, he was finally brought to me. He latched on and nursed for the first time. He's been going strong since.
