I finally had my boy!! He came a week and a half early but he is perfect! I had a feeling he'd come early and he did!
He was born at 7:38pm on Sunday June 2, 2013. He weighed 6 lbs 8oz and was 19.19 inches long. He has dark hair and blue eyes! They say if you have lots of heartburn they will come out with a ton of hair and well I believe this one! i had horrid heartburn and this little guy came out with lots of hair!!
I came to the hospital Saturday night because I started having contractions. We stayed from 7pm til almost 2am and they sent me home. I was miserable and did not want to leave, the pain was bad and it was every 3 mins! They didn't keep me cause I was only dilated 1 cm so we went home. We stayed home 4 hours before the other "signs" of labor started and then we came right back and this time they kept me! I wasn't going to get an epidural and was very much against it however the pain was so bad it made me physically sick and shake uncontrollably. I had back labor as well and well that is so NOT fun!! I dilated pretty quick but when it came time to push well little man wasn't budging!! After two hours of pushing on and off they did a C-Section. I was terrified of it because I've never had surgery. It went pretty fast but the recovery is well hard. I can't move and getting up is extremely difficult. They say it will take about a week before I have some mobility back.
Anyway my little man took right to breastfeeding too!! I was so worried with the epidural and meds he wouldn't take to it. I had read that the epidural and drugs could cause a baby not to latch on but Liam latched on and boy did he latch on! He has such a grip it takes my breath away at times!
He is just too cute. I am so happy he is finally here. He is my love and when he isn't in the room I miss him!!! We should be going home later this evening. They keep you 48hrs from the time of birth. Everyone here has been AMAZING!! I am so glad I had him here and had a good first time birthing experience. I had a female doctor which is what i wanted. She was awesome and funny which helped!! The nurses are sweet and helpful. They don't make you feel uncomfortable or that you are bothering them. I am quite happy with the treatment I've had here which good because the prenatal treatment I had was a nightmare and made me very nervous to deliver. All in all this was a great experience and one I think I'll just be experiencing once!
