He’s finally here! Meet Bắc Arthur English (named after our Dads). This little guy was breeched for a while and was scheduled for a c-section on August 5th, but he decided he wanted to do things his way.

At 1:50a on July 31st, I woke up because I needed to use the restroom, but it turns out it was my water breaking! I wasn't having any major contractions, but I was having lower back pains for a couple of days leading up to it. (I thought it was just my body getting ready for the baby to come, but the nurses told me those were probably my contractions!) So, Steven called the hospital and the triage nurses told me to take a shower and come in within the hour. As soon as I got to Sharp Mary Birch and checked into triage, the contractions came, and boy, were they strong! 

This was my first pregnancy so I didn't know what to expect when you have a contraction. It's was like having a period cramp combined with lower back pains, but 1000x more intense! lol Steven and I got to the hospital at 3a, and by 4:56a our baby boy was here! He was delivered via C-section. Dr. E, the nurses, and staff at Sharp Mary Birch were great! They all go above and beyond for us and have made our stay so awesome. The private post-partum room has been awesome  since our big families have been in and out to visit. 

Bắc was very healthy. He came in at 8lbs 3oz, and is 20.2 inches long. Keep swiping to see more pics of our baby boy!

My water broke at 1:50a on July 31st, so Steven and I headed into Sharp Mary Birch and at 4:56a he was born! Things moved pretty quickly and Im not gonna lie, I was nervous, but the doctors and nurses at Mary Birch are incredible (shout out to Dr. E who did my emergency c-section!) The procedure went really fast and our baby was delivered safely. He’s a healthy one too, 8lbs 3oz and 20 inches long. Thank you @sharphealthcare for taking fantastic care of me, Steven, and Baby Bac as I recover and we start to bond as a family. And thank you for all of the thoughts, prayers, and kind words you’ve been sending for our little family ------ ---- PS how cool is that I was a Sharp baby and now my baby is one too?! #sharpbaby #sdmoms
