Asher Belden Super was born 2/21 (2 days pre-EDD) 10:37pm MT - if he'd been born in NC he'd be a 22nd baby, but nope a 21st like his mama (June) and great grandma (October).
He sure made a liar out of me, I told my mom yesterday that there was no way he'd be born this weekend because I hadn't been any dilated on Wednesday, in fact my cervix was still thinning.
Water broke around 8:30-9:30 am but I didn't really have a clue until around 11:30 when I realized I was having pretty regular contractions and kept gushing here and there. A quick stop at Target to pick up a few things (and to see if I contracted while walking around) and we finally stopped at the hospital just before 1.
They tested my fluids, we were told I was in labor and before admitted to a birthing suite found out I was 1.5-2 cm dilated. By 6pm I was 6 cm, and an hour later I was 9 cm.
I pushed for two hours before the decision was made that I was too small to deliver our son vaginally. My pelvic bone blocked his escape, and so I was given an emergency c-section.
Weighing in at 7 pounds and 7 ounces, he's got a head full of hair, my "fairy" ears (slightly pointed) and my nose. No measurement for length yet, that'll happen in the morning. But for now our little guy is sleeping and just as perfect as can be.
Had a little trouble nursing at first until we got a nipple shield set up. Now he's fed twice - once on each breast. He's had his first two shots and took them like I would - just fussy enough, funnily enough he hated the eye drops more and pitched a loud fit.
