And then there were three!




I know that it has a couple days... but Degan Montgomery Savage is here. April 6th 2009 at 7:49 am. There were some minor complications, but everyone is home and healthy. I woke up at 4:30, we left for the hospital at 5:30, checked in at 6:15, went though a bunch of questions. She checked me for the first time and I was dilated to a 7. We went straight to the delivery room. It was 7:00. Not long in there I asked for an epidural. She check me again and I was a 10 and I couldn't get one. The rest is a little blurry. He was here at 7:49. The complications were, I am GBS positive. It is a bacteria that grows on 1/3 of all women. It doesn't do anything to me and is no problem except when you are having a baby. During labor you get should get two rounds antibiotics. Since labor was so fast, I only got a half dose. Degan was in the NICU for 4 days. 3 of the 4 he was on antibiotics, for the possibility that he got the bacteria. He never did get it. They kept him one extra day with out any antibiotics to make sure and the he was able to come home!!! We were very excited about. He weighed 8lb 3oz, and was 21 1/2 inches long. Everything is wonderful.
