Rhys is Born!!!!!

So this morning Chrystal started hurting really bad around 5 am (CST). She tried a bath to relax but the pains kept coming and going. She called our doctor's office and one of the on-call doctors called back and told her to wait and call the office when they open at 8:30 am, remember that time by the way.

My mind is still a blur but I think we went into the emergency room at Middle Tennessee Medical Center (MTMC) around 7:00 am. Once we got up to labor & delivery one of the wonderful nurses checked her out. Well come to find out she was dilated 4 cm with a bulging bag (meaning her water was about to break). After that a rush of nurses & doctors came in and started preparing for surgery. Rhys was still being stubborn and was breach so she had to have a cesarean. We were very nervous as Chrystal was only 30.5 weeks along (37 is full-term).

At 8:45 am our beautify Rhys was born!

Remember the time? We were suppose to wait to call the office at 8:30 am to make an appointment to come in.

As soon as he came out I went with the nurses and doctor to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Stay tuned.....
