Chase Xavier Is Here

At 10 days overdue, Chase Xavier has FINALLY made his entrance into this world. Just a brief birth story... At our bi-weekly check-up on Tuesday morning, I had already started labor and Chase's fluids were low so we were admitted into L&D. The contractions were getting stronger and closer together (about 2-4 minutes) almost right away and continued for hours. The midwife checked me around 2:00 and informed us that I was 2 centimeters dialated. So we walked... and walked... and walked. We were checked again by a doctor at 5:00 p.m. and told that I was 3 centimeters dialated. We wanted to try to have him natural, so I waited and waited for something to happen. I was checked again and was at beween 4-5 centimeters dialated. About 5 minutes later Chase's heart rate dropped to 70 bpm... and didn't pick back up. Within the next 3 minutes I was in the OR getting an emergency c-section. Chase was delivered at 2:57 a.m. and is healthy and beautiful. Thank you all for your advice and stories that kept me inspired throughout this pregnancy. God bless you all!
