My plus one.

I know its been a long time since I've posted, and I have good reason.  My pregnancy flew by in between Dr's visits(2 w eek the last 2 months) and work, but it finally all came to a rather dramatic conclusion.  On April 20th, after 3 heartbreaking losses I became a "new mom" All over again. Sweet little Parker Vance came into this world at 4:49pm.  

We had been assured at our last visit that he was "At least 4lbs" But they also said his growth had petered out, so our plan to take him at 38 weeks was a go.   The last few moments of labor was the scariest, his heart rate slowed with every contraction, one even to the point of nearly stopping. I wanted my Iphone music playing loudly so I didn't have to listen to it anymore.  Before they could give it to me, I assured the nurse he was ready to come out. And he did, after just 2 or 3 good pushes. I was still pushing, in fact when they told me to stop, he was already in the Dr's arms.  He was so purple and so still, my heart broke, but he started screaming before I had the chance the think the worst.  All arms and legs, Parker weighed 5lbs and 1 oz.  His sugar was very low at first, but they gave him some formula and he evened out and stayed that way. He battled a little jaundice that first week, but other than that he is 110% a healthy little boy. His placenta was deemed the cause of his slow growth, it was very small, due most likely to the 4g4g issue.  I don't care about all of that anymore, he is here and in my arms, more baby than I could've dreamed of.  His brothers love him to pieces and so do his Daddy and I!  I will write more later, I just thought I should give a quick update!
