Tucker James arrived at 10:35pm. He's 6# 2oz (at 35w5d). He's doing ok. They have him off the oxygen now, but he's still trying to perfect this whole breathing thing. The nurses have VERY close eyes on him and he seems to be responding well. His heart tones go down when I'm near him, so he's recognizing me. :) All in all, he's doing well.

As for me, it was a very hard delivery. He was sunny side up and the cord was wrapped around his shoulder. Only 15% of babies that present that way are born vaginally, so I was lucky....they did use the vaccume, but he's here and I'm just swollen and SORE. And NO STITCHES!! So, we'll see what the next few days brings. I was lucky enough to have my super mom with me, so I know that helped.

And Nubane sucks. Didn't work for me. lol! I'll try and post pix when I get home in a few days.
