Baby Bennett Asher is here!!!
So after I got the epidural I started to dream in Spanish. That's right in Spanish. I was walking in a garden looking at plants and pots and it was narrated in Spanish. Then the nurse snapped me out of it and asked if I were passing out? I didn't realize it but yes I had. My blood pressure had dropped to 60/30. It had been sitting steady at 115/70 my whole pregnancy and delivery. Then Bennett's heart rate started dipping into the 80's and 90's. So I then got meds to bring my blood pressure back up and spent the next 3 hours sleeping on my hands and knees. I wake up and the doc says let's start pushing. So after about 5-6 pushes, Barrett delivered our baby boy and put him up on my chest.
What a great experience for Barrett to deliver him and for me to have Bailee there. Also what a great experience for Bailee to watch.
