This is just a short post to let you know that my son, Oliver, was born!
My due date was May 11th, but he arrived May 17th! It was definitely not the labor and delivery experience I had expected. I was induced, but the little guy was in too much stress to go forward with labor. So, I ended up with a C-Section.
The thing is, as soon as I got to the hospital to be induced, they figured out Oliver was in distress. If I didn’t have that induction date, I wouldn’t have known! The doctor wanted to try to get him out as soon as we could, but the medication for the induction just made it worse…with every contraction, Oliver’s heart rate dropped.
I am so grateful to God that I was given that day for my induction and Oliver was born safely!
We are both doing great. I’m still recovering, but my husband has been a huge help. Oliver is perfect!
So, back to the regularly-scheduled summer baby break…
You can definitely still email me. It just might take a little longer than normal for me to get back to you!
I will be back to scheduling regular guest posts on Devotional Diva in a couple months. See you then!
