A quick update :) — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

A quick update :)

Wowza, what a crazy 24 hours!! It turns out I was in early labor and contracting on Friday while I was at work and saturday they were definitely real contractions as they were getting worse and worse!  On wed at my 38w visit i was maybe dilated to a 1, well they checked yesterday and I was over 4 by the time I agreed to go into the L&D triage!!

Well given that I had a sched c/s set for mon am they didn't want my labor to progress so shortly after they realized how dilated I was the said "take a deep breath b/c we are doing your c/s in 30 min's!!" Indifferent


Everything happened so fast after that, it all went very well.  You know how they predicted he was going to be a "big boy?!" well he ended up being born at 8.5lbs 12:52am!! He is absolutely perfect (IMO Big Smile) He scored 9/9 on his apgars and we just can't stop staring at his beautiful little face..


Thanks Shanna for updating everyone, and thank you to everyone for your well wishes and care and support.  I truly think I'd be in the looney bin if it wasn't for all of you, thank you thank you thank you!!!!!
