Kimber Todd Morris came into this world with a grand entrance on Thursday, December 3, 2009 at 9:47 a.m.
He gave us quite a scare...I went to the hospital on Wednesday because I was having contractions 3 minutes apart. Since I had contractions for the past week, we decided to induce on Thursday. At 6 a.m. on Thursday the nurse started the drip and my contractions got pretty bad, so I got my epidural and things seemed to be settling down. That was clearly wrong! At 9:30 Dr. L came in and broke my water. Kimber's heartrate had been around 130-160 all morning. However, when the doctor broke my water his heartrate dropped to the 50s.
Dr. L said his cord and hand were leading out of the birth canal and that was not good. At this time, we were going to an emergency C-section. Swarms of nurses were by my side within seconds. I was wheeled to the OR and Kimber was born within 7 minutes. This was a whirlwind and I was nervous and anxious to hear him, touch him, and see him. Kimber's first cry was the sweetest sound I have ever heard.
This was the scariest thing I have ever been through in my life. By the grace of God, many prayers, and modern technology, Kimber was born healthy weighing 7 lbs 11 ounces, measuring 20 1/2 inches. We want to thank everyone for their prayers at that time.
Our beautiful baby boy:
