Girrrrls!!! I had my baby boy! I'm so so so sorry for the delay in getting on here long enough to write anything. I tried the other day and then life got in the way.
I was just about to be induced after my non-stress test, and I went into labor. I was in labor an exceptionally long time. We stayed home for over 24 hours. I labored in the big tub with Peter for hours, and when it was unbearable and the contractions were 4 minutes apart for over an hour we headed to the hospital. I couldn't believe how much pain I was in! I found out that I had a cervix that would not progress and longer than normal contractions. Hooked up to the monitors, the baby started having decels. They were talking about a possible C-section, when things seemed to pick up. I was literally screaming in pain, but they told me it was time to push. I pushed for about 40 minutes and my little boy was born. Little Braiden Thomas was born after hours of horrendous labor and so many scares. He had some minor stuff that happened in the first few hours after birth, and he spent an extra day in the hospital, but everything is fine now. We have a home nurse that has been coming to make sure his weight is good, his breathing is on track, etc. and all has been pretty good. A few extra doctors appointments, but all in all Braidy is doing great.
Peter and I are on We can't believe what a beautiful little thing came out of my body. Peter got to actually deliver him and placed him on my chest! While we had some scares, I can't believe how amazing it is to have a baby! I looked at Peter in the delivery room after Braiden was born and said I want another baby! LOL
Hope you girls and your babies are doing well too!!! Hayley, hope we haven't scared you yet!
