Since he was 5 days late at this point we had to go in to have some monitoring done the next morning. During the motoring his heart rate dropped substantially, and I was wheeled straight over to labor and delivery. They hooked us up to the monitors again and the doctors determined that I was going to have the baby that day. Even though we knew there was a small chance this would happen we did not bother to pack the car, so Matt headed home to fetch our things, and as soon as he got back they started the labor induction, at around 1 PM.
I was only in "labor" for about 3 hours, just as they were starting to administer my epidural the doctors determined that since Ices heart rate was still low they were going to have to perform a c-section, and about a minute latter I was wheeled into the OR, and not long after that we were welcoming Arthur Harrison into the world.
The Davies family was released from the hospital a few days latter. Life has been quite an adjustment with a new little one but we are all doing quite well. We have so many great family and friends that have given us so much help and support.
Arthur had his first official doctors appointment last week, and everything is going great, we have a nice healthy boy on our hands. I plan to keep you all posted on the life and times of the Davies family. I don't have any posted yet but keep an eye on my flicker page for many many photo's of our beautiful baby boy!
