Carson's Birth April 21, 2014

 Right before I went in for my emergency c-section

Just a few minutes later Carson was born

Out of recovery seeing my baby for the first time

Proud, handsome daddy

Sweet grandma

The day of Carson's birth was quite eventful.  I just went in for my check up at Dr. Erickson's office, he did a couple of tests and realized that I was leaking out amniotic fluid and needed to get to the hospital right away.  I was really nervous because this was my first C-section and I didn't know what to expect.  We got to the hospital and I was so grateful my mom and Matt were there with me and that my kids were safe and sound with my cousin Jill and her family. It was a little scary for me because they were worried that maybe Carson was in danger where I was leaking amniotic fluid and they didn't treat me for strep so they worried about that too. So when I went into the operating room I was already so scared and nervous.  When they gave me my spinal my blood pressure dropped critically low and I got so sick.  It was so traumatic for me.  Then, finally they told me Carson was out, but I didn't hear him cry and got really nervous.  It took them over a minute to get him to take a breath.  But he finally did and then they rushed him out to do all the tests they needed to.  Since I had previous surgeries and this C-section was more invasive then they usually do I was in recovery for a long time.  I remember Matt coming in and showing me a picture of Carson.  I remember thinking he was so handsome already and loved him instantly.  When I finally met my baby I truly knew Heaven had sent me an angel and I didn't know what I did to deserve it, but I was so grateful!!
