Ethan's Birth Story
At 38 weeks, my doctor noticed my baby wasn’t moving as much as he had been at previous appointments so she did a non-stress test to make sure my baby was OK. I was having a few small contractions and during one of the contractions the baby’s heart rate dropped just a little. Because of this, my doctor decided to do an ultrasound to check out the baby.
She had no sooner started the ultrasound when she announced that I would be going to labor and delivery and having a baby that day! It turned out that there was no fluid left around the baby. We decided to go ahead with a C-section since the doctors were afraid that my baby wouldn’t tolerate labor well and they needed to get him out.
My doctor’s appointment was at 9:30 that morning. At 2:33 PM, Ethan James was born! He was two weeks early, and weighed seven pounds, 10 ounces. He was perfectly healthy, and when he came out, he was screaming … and peeing everywhere!
