My little boy was born at 3:33 AM, Sunday, Jan.8 weighing 7 lbs 3 oz. Because my water had already broken (24 hours of labor later),it was somewhat of a ticking clock to get him out of there.(due to risk of infection) and I was stuck on 9 cm dilated for a good 3 hours. The doctor felt like it wasn't going to progress (birth canal too narrow), so I agreed to the C-section. I was 38 weeks/4 days at that point.(which is full term enough for some babies but not for all)At birth, his blood sugar was 50 so he was with me in post-op but over the next couple of hours, his blood sugar dropped to 32 and 28 so they took him to the NICU to get his blood sugar stabilized. Then his body temperature started dropping, although his bg was stabilized in the next 1.5 days,his temperature wouldn't come up so he was in the NICU for 9 days. He's home now though, eating like a linebacker, and doing well.
Thank you for all the wonderful support I got on this forum. It's still hard to believe I have something so wonderful in my life-& diabetes didn't stop that dream!
