Logan Lawrence Cruz L arrived July 24th 2009 at 10:05 am weighing a tiny 5lbs 10 oz, he is so perfect!
I will post a full birth story later but will give a really quick summary now. My PIH worsened yesterday & so they decided to induce me, we started at 6pm with the foley. I got the epidural around 4cm shortly after my water broke. It wore off several times requiring a total of 6 top ups. At one point the on call physician offered to do a c-section, I am so glad I held off! I pushed for 30 minutes & only had a tiny tear requiring 3 stitches.
Logan is diong well but is almost 5 weeks early, he had to go to the NICU & is currently on nasal CPAP to help him out wiht hsi breathing. He has a partially collapsed lung that they expect to self resolve. They are treating him with antibiotics as a pracaution until his labwork comes back negative in 48 hrs. He is not well enough to feed jsut yet & has an IB but I have started pumping & we are hoping to put him to breast tomorrow. I will update as I can, but for now I am one happy & tired momma! Here are a few pictures of my little man:
This is him with the CPAP, it looks scarier then it is. They expect him to come off of it tonight or tomorrow.
Here he is before the CPAP, he looks a lot like his daddy, look at those chunky monkey cheeks!
