Although his mom was very happy that he came 3 weeks early he did catch us off guard. Emily was on her way to return some things to Walmart when she noticed that she was having regular contractions about 4 minutes apart. She figured that was enough time to make her return before the next contraction!
On her way to the hospital she called me and I met her there. She was able to get an epidural soon after arriving.
Zack did not come easily. He was coming out face first, in a "brow presentation", and he didn't come quickly or easily. Em had 2 obstetricians working with her for over an hour to help get him out.
On Wednesday we had to hang out at the hospital while Zack got examined, circumcised, and vaccinated. It killed us both to have to be confined to a hospital room, but at least we had Zack with us some of the time to keep us company.
