Nathaniel Stuart McGinty was born last night at 9:34. He weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and was just shy of 20 inches long. He was face up, so after 2 hours of pushing he was delivered by c-section.
He had a bit of trouble breathing at first, and was grey and silent. He started breathing after about a minute and started to pink up. His extremities stayed grayish for awhile, so they admitted him to the NICU to give him oxygen and fluids and monitor his progress. He did great and the oxygen came off around 2am. He’s still there, as NICU doctors seem like cautious people, but he should be out today or tomorrow at the latest. Elaine is recovering well and looking forward to breaking him out.
