My Brady Bear

After 24 hours of labor, 1 round of Cervadil and 3 of Cyotec I still hadn't even dilated to 1cm so we decided to go ahead with the c-section. 20 minutes later they had me ready to go and Brayden was born at 6:10pm. He weighed in at 7lb 1oz and 19" long.

You can see in the pic below that he looks a little blue...he was born with fluid in his lungs. Other than in the pic below I haven't gotten to see him at all. I haven't gotten to hold or touch him at all. He is in the nursery and right now we are waiting on the pedi to come in and tell us what happens next...last night they had him on oxygen and 2 antibiotics.

I haven't slept at all because I was so upset last night. There are two women next to me - one each side who had their babies with them last night and it just made me sad that my little boy is all alone in the nursery. More later.

You don't know me but we also go to FBCB. I'm sad to hear that little Brayden is having such a rough time. My little boy Braxton, who is now almost 18 months old, was born a month early and had similar problems. He had pnuemonia and we weren't able to hold him and keep him with us for a while as well. You all are in our prayers.
