So sorry it has been so long since I wrote a blog. Life got a little crazy. I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Family and Friends. Since Thanksgiving I have been going to weekly appointments, relaxing, Christmas Shopping and preparing for out little one to arrive in January. Well Our little one had a different plan for us. Friday December 9th I starting feeling some of what I thought was braxton hicks contractions. They weren't close together and I wasn't having any problems so we didn't think much about it. I was still having the Pain off and on Saturday December 10th so I laid around and tried to relax. Saturday night I went to my cousins wedding and did okay. So again we thought it was nothing. Sunday night I was really starting to feel the pain but the contractions weren't close together and were every once in a while. We had a Doctors appointment the next day at 11:30 so I decided I would just wait and go to the doctors in the morning since I was not having any other issues.
Monday December 12th (34 weeks along) I went to my doctors appointment and come to our surprise I was 3 cm dilated. They sent me to Labor and Delivery to try and stop my contractions. They gave me some meds to try and stop labor and wanted to wait 2 hours before checking me again . By the next time they checked me I was 5 cm. I was in active labor. They got me to a room and all ready for our little ones arrival. I thought for sure I would be in labor for ever but to my surprise I had a very quick , smooth and easy labor and quick delivery. At 10:23 p.m Our little guy was welcomed in to the world. He weighed 5 pounds 14 ounce and 18 1/2 inches long.
We were very worried about him since he was so early. They had NICU nurses in the room ready for his arrival to take care of him and make sure he was okay. They checked him out and he was perfectly fine. He didn't have to go to the NICU. Which was a miracle. He got to stay with us in the room and got to go home with us when I was discharged from the hospital. We are so blessed on how well he did for coming early. He has been doing amazing since we got home. We couldn't be happier for our early Christmas Present..He is such a miracle. We are so in love with our Little guy:0)
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas... I know we sure will.
