I came up to L&D yesterday at around 3 because of lack of fetal movement.



The on call doctor ordered an ultrasound because my son had been measuring small and was going to be taken at 38 weeks.



After the ultrasound, I was informed that the baby had no fluid and we would be doing an emergency c-section...



Less than 2 hours later, I was on the operating table. Scared, nervous, excited, overwhelmed...what felt like ages later, my husband and I heard that beautiful cry.



Kennedy Tristan was born at 9:30 on 12/10/12, 4 pounds and 15 ounces, and 19 inches long! He is so beautiful and so healthy.



I got to feed him and he ate a whole ounce! He's staying in the nicu tonight because his second sugar test was low, but other than that...he's doing so great.



(: sorry if this sounds all crazy. I just had another dose of pain medication and I haven't slept.
