    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 :cloud9: 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! :haha:

    Lol! Sorry for the lack of details. I have mommy brain already! :wacko: lol

    He was 6 11 and 21in and was born on his due date! The 2nd! How funny is that? They were telling me that I needed to be induced and I was so upset, but I kept at all my natural induction things. The appointments with the accupuncturist and massage therapist must have done it! We aren't terribly far from the hospital, maybe fifteen minutes. I was just so adamant about not going in early and then getting pressured to get pitocin. I told Peter he might have to deliver in the car. Hahaha He wasn't amused at the time! He did have decels and it was so scary, but they turned me on my side and had me try a few different positions and it helped. They said he might have been laying on his cord. :wacko: after he was born we did skin to skin and breastfed. When they brought him to the nursery to do the general things they do there, his temps dipped and his breathing was wonky. It kept happening. I did a lot of kangaroo care and he was still able to stay with me most of the time but they checked his vitals and things often.

    Overall he's doing well, but I'm a wreck after feeling so frightened that the home nurse has helped. He's gaining weight and is such a sweet little boy. I am so in love. As soon as Peter puts the pictures on the computer I will try to get one up. He's a cutie pie! :flower:

    I have to find a nap time when I can go through and catch up on the thread. I'm glad everyone is doing well. Love you girls!

    Hope if you didn't notice we're on facebook now. It's easier there. And we all Breastfed and still managed to post/add photos. It's been eating at me that you have yet to post a photo of yourself yet alone your little man. I don't know what to think to be honest. We all divulged into our personal lives and shared things with you. Wish you would do the same!
