Well here we go.

My wife's water broke on the evening of the 13th, and we went to the hospital as planned. We spent the next few days with her being in pain due to contractions.

I asked the doctor to perform an epidural as my wife was in agony from the contractions and exhaustion (nerve block of most pain from the middle spine down). An epidural is common in America, but uncommon in Japan. The doctor attempted this, and failed twice. No low pain birth for her.

From that point until today they have been giving my wife pain meds and trying to have a natural birth, as here a C-section is last resort. 

At around 1700 JST+9 on May 20th, the doctors came into the room in a large quantity, and had the ultrasound machine. Afterwards the doctor called away for an emergency c section. I later found out this was due to my son entering a temporary death state. I actually got all of it on my GoPro IRL, scary stuff.

Fortunately after a short surgery, Ryu was delivered at 3426 grams or a bit over 7.5lbs. He is huge and very tall compared to the average baby in Japan. From what we can tell both he and my wife will be fine and recover quickly.

If you find me in server (as I have about 1-2 months off work for the baby, and mostly work from home) please don't mind a bit of background noise. This community really helped me through the last week, and has been a nice distraction to the very real and scary situations that have unfolded the last week.

Couple of pictures.

See you all around town, and thanks to everyone, as it is you who makes the community special.

Respectfully,
