Alex Jennifer

Alex finally joined us on November 22, 2010 at 5:22am. She came 6 days after her due date and also came on her own, thankfully I did not have to be induced. I started labor about an hour before we were to be at the hospital to get induced. Labor went quickly and perfectly. We arrived at the hospital around 8pm Sunday night. I lasted until midnight with no drugs and tried an injectable hourly drug first. This drug got me to a 4 at which I then received my epidural at 2:30am. My anesthesiologist said it was a little early to receive one but I knew it was not early for me. Around 4:15am my water broke and I started pushing at 5am. There were no issues pushing her out and Alex shocked everyone with her weight of 9lbs 1oz. We had a great experience and Casey was an awesome coach and helped take good care of me. We are very blessed with our new daughter.

Waiting Game....AGAIN

Well i'm officially over due AGAIN!!! My due date of November 16th is long gone. I should have expected this since I went a week over with Rylan. I have started seeing the doctor every other day and also started having stress tests to make sure the baby is okay. I tried to get induced last week and of course it failed, so if drugs can't get me to have this baby... Nothing is going to work, just time. From the beginning I always thought I would have this baby Saturday November 2oth, so we will see if i'm right. I had Rylan's birthday picked out when I was pregnant with him. If the baby is not here by Monday the 22nd we will have to try inducing again. I really do not want to be in the hospital on Thanksgiving - so let's hope this baby comes out soon.
