Our story began with bed rest on Thursday and Friday followed by a
"planned" induction for Saturday morning. Our appointment
at the "Inn" was for 7 am. Jay had the day to tie up loose
ends at work. I spent Friday on the bed with Grampy babysitting me.
He cleaned the house, watered plants, and put together last minute
When Jay got home about 6 pm, he was ready. He said "You
never know. We might have Baby P tonight!" I had come to terms
with a planned induction finally and laughed his comment off... SURE
we could, but it will be tomorrow morning as we causally walk
ourselves into the hospital, no spontaneity.
night continued with dinner with Grampy and Nana, they left and Jay
was finishing up a bit of work. I was laying on my pregnancy, bed
rest throne starting to feel what I was unsure of... light
contractions??? A short time later, I finally confessed to Jay that I
believe I might be having contractions. It's 8 pm and we start timing
them. Within an hour they averaged 1 minute and were 4-5
minutes apart... TIME TO CALL THE DOCTOR!!! They say.... time to go
to the hospital!
Besides being busy adjusting and learning to be the greatest parents ever, our laptop has crashed. SO all the pictures we had diligently taken were almost lost. Thanks to a large external hard drive and a stellar computer guy, we got them back! All has been saved!! So.We.Are.Back.
The story is more detailed and I will probably post it at some point in the near future, but we were blessed with a handsome, healthy, baby BOY on December 29, 2012 at 2:03am. He is an absolute gem and we couldn't be more in LOVE.
We went in for our doctors appointment visit early this week as Dr. Klinger is going on vacation next week. Luckily we did as my blood pressure had jumped significantly from Monday. This made everyone nervous and Baby P and I were quickly evaluated. Baby P passed a stress test with flying colors and my blood work came back perfect. We will be re-evaluated on Saturday, December 29th - where we have a "reservation for a suite at the inn" as our doctor called it.
