Baby No Name is here

He was born at 6:23 yesterday morning. I woke up at 2 am with a small contraction and then what seemed like my water breaking. I wasn't 100% sure, so I waited about 40 minutes until bloody show to call the birth center. Still not feeling contractions. She told me to lay back down and try to sleep until they came.Yeah, that lasted about 30 minutes. Contractions started hard and fast. We got to the birth center around 4:40 am. No name yet. 6 lbs 14ozs and 19 3/4".

He started to deteriorate with O2 levels at the birth center so they transfered him to the NICU about 4 hours after birth. At the NICU, they put him on O2. When he first arrived, he was on 70% oxygen. By midnight last night, he was down to 38%. As of 6am this morning, he was back to 60%. They are about to put him in an incubator and give him antibiotics and Curosurf to open his lungs up.

I love that picture. Congratulations! 

I hope his stats move in the right direction. I haven't had much experience with the nicu, but I imagine it's not exactly peachy. : / 

Any ideas on a name yet?
