Alright, finally after 17 hours of labor, little Matthew arrived. He did wind up providing us with the scare of our lives though. As Kristi was finishing labor, on the last 4 pushes, Matthew lost his heart beat completely. He came out with his cord wrapped around his neck, not breathing and without a heart beat. The Doctors acted fast and were able to recover him within 3 minutes. His minute 1 apgar score was a 1 and his minute 5 apgar was a 9.
He was 6lbs 10oz and 19 3/4 inches long. He is beautiful and Mom is resting fine. Thanks for all of the support.
