Baby Kristopher & I are home!

I'll tell ya'll the birth story first real fast:
At 9:10pm on Nov. 12th my water broke. Husband came home from work and drove me to the hospital. As soon as I got out of the blazer to go inside, my water leaked all down my legs into my shoes and left a HUGE puddle by the door! LOL! I was checked into Labor & Delivery at 10:15pm. At 10:30pm they checked me and I was at 4cm and 80% effaced. I asked for some IV medicine to help take the edge off the contractions that were already 2-3 mins apart. At midnight they checked me again and I was at 7cm. Then at 12:45am I was 9cm. Then I started to feel like I had to push so I begged them to check me again and this was at 12:55am and yup I was at 10cm and he was ready to come. He was born at 1:12am on November 13th. It all happened really fast!!! To bad he wasn't born before midnight he got stuck being born on the 13th. Lets see, his stats were:Born 1:12am on Nov. 13thWeighed 8 lbs. 4 oz.21 inches longSo glad its over!!!

We got home a little before 2pm today. So glad I didn't have to stay at the hospital for very long. Contractions suck pretty bad still, but the Motrin seems to help. Kristopher is nursing really well, even tho it hurts at times, i'm hanging in there. My bottom is still sore, but thats pretty normal. He has his days and nights mixed up already, so not much sleep last night. Trying to keep him awake today as much as possible. Here is a picture of him we took when we got home.

I'll post more later when I have a chance.

Oh and you wanna hear something really weird???He got his tongue stuck between his gums on the way out during birth so he has this HUGE bruise on his little tongue. When he sticks his tongue out all you see is purple! Looks painful but it doesn't seem to bother him. All the nurses said they had never heard of a baby bitting his tongue on the way out...leave it up to one of my kids to do something crazy like that! LOL!

Hospital Visit

Well last night I started having really bad contractions that came with some very painful cramping. And with the hospital being a good 30-45 minute drive and knowing I had to drop the kids off with my friend, I figured it would be a good time to go ahead to the hospital before it got to late.

Well it was a very uneventful night.

I'm still almost 4cm, but not quite. I did thin out more during the now I'm 70% effaced. Even tho the contractions were 3-5 minutes apart, I wasn't dilating anymore so they decided to send me home to labor here until my water broke or they were so painful I couldn't stand it or I had the urge to push. Wonderful huh?

They were very busy and needed the bed I was using, so they pretty much kicked me out on my bum. OH well, thats okay, I was missing my babies anyways. They didn't seem to upset I hadn't had the baby yet, they just enjoyed their sleep over at Maisie's house.

So anyways, I'm sitting at home now. Contractions have slowed down alot!!! So I guess its good they sent me home. I'd rather be here than in that stupid hospital anyways. Walking is kinda a challange at times, I feel like he is stuck between my legs. I'll survive tho.

I'll update later...

38 Week OBGYN Appt. Update!

I'm 3-4 cm. already! Dr. Jackson stripped my membranes and OMG he about killed me! I've been hurting every since so maybe I'll have baby Kris today if i'm lucky! I've got to go pick the girls up from school in 30 mins so I'll be walking there and back and maybe that will help some. If not, i'm going to be upset. LOL! I'm so ready for this to be over with, but so not looking forward to the PAIN! OH well, wish me luck!
