Our Tinsel Tot made an early appearance!

I think DH and I are still in shock! Our surprise baby was a boy, and he was born Sunday morning at 2:05 am at 35 weeks and a few days ( I don't even know exactly, lol), labour started spontaneously. His name is Liam and he weighed in at a pretty decent preemie weight, 6 lbs 12 oz and 19 inches. Since my GBS swab hadn't been done yet, and labour was fast and furious, he has to stay in NICU for 24-48 hours with IV antibiotics. :(. We were excitedly planning a home birth, but alas it was too early for that, so off to the hospital we went. Arrived there at 1:50 and he was born at 2:05. Other than the NICU time, he is perfect and we are thrilled.

Can't wait to start reading some other birth stories!! Biggrin

Oh wow, just 15 minutes to spare!! How exciting, and I agree...what a story Smile

Huge congratulations to you and your family and welcome to little Liam!!!!!! Biggrin

Sounds like a great weight considering he was early Smile That's too bad he has to stay in the NICU though, that must be hard Sad better safe than sorry, I suppose. I hope you are all home safe and sound soon!

Wow! Congratulations!! I'm also anxious to see pictures!! I'm so excited to start seeing what these babies look like! (I wondered about the GBS thing if they were born before that test had been done).
