OK... so at noon, on the way to my ILs house, I had a contraction that I knew felt more like the real thing...I didn't tell anyone; I just kept an eye on the clock. They were about 12 or 13 minutes apart at that point.

By about 3, Scott had asked me several times what was up--I'd been leaving the room a lot more so I could breathe through them a little more, as they were starting to get more uncomfortable... By 4, I was fairly certain it'd be today. (well, now it's yesterday, but you know what I mean ). I called my mom to let her know that I was contracting, but I hadn't called the birth center, and I still didn't tell her how far apart they were (at that point, they were about 6 or 7 minutes). I called the midwife a little after 5, and they were about every 5 minutes. She thought it sounded like it'd be a while since I wasn't sounding very stressed or anything, and she said she'd meet us at 6:30 at the birth center. We headed out, and got there right about 630 (she had called on the way and said she was running behind because she was out when I called her). Now, on the way there, my contractions had gotten really close and were beginning to be a little intense. About 3 minutes apart...

She gets there at 6:44, and she checks me and I was a good 7. No wonder they were hurting--I was getting into transition already!

Little Anderson Luke arrived at 7:43 after a pretty quick pushing phase (7 minutes is what's in the notes). No tears (she said I had a couple "nicks"), no stitches, just a little handsome 7 lb. 10 oz. blondie...


My SIL took a lot of pictures, but she's only got a few up so far. Here are her shots:


My brand new boy:

His cute little feet:



My camera hardly got broken out... here's a picture of getting him checked:



ready to go home:

and after we got here:

I'm pretty much in love.

Oh, Kim, he's absolutely stunning! What a little beauty! How is he nursing? Is he latching well, or is he gonna be a booger about it? lol. I remember Ethan latched right on and nursed perfectly from the get-go, Zack was a whole 'nother story, lol. Try to get some rest. We love you! Update when you can.

wow!! Congrats!! I am amazed at how birth centers work, and how you're home already! Like, you woke up in your bed pregnant, and you go to your own bed that night with your new baby! CONGRATS! He is PRECIOUS!

He's doing pretty well, actually. He nursed like three or four times in the time I was at the birth center. He's nursing right now too. We're having a little tougher time on the left breast for some reason. He's had three meconiums, though, so I'd say that's a good sign, right?



Lisa--Maddie loves him. Right away she started saying, "I hode da baby. Pease." She's so cute. She keeps saying, "dat Yukie."







by the way... notice that he's awake in ALL the pictures!? He didn't sleep the entire time at the birth center, and he was really calm. He even made cute little babble noises!! Teri heard it!

Pretty much; yes. I thought Sunday evening or anytime today would be great. lol

What a good boy.

He's a non sleeper, though. I can't believe how much he's been awake! He did finally sleep at about 4 this morning, and slept until a little bit ago and I nursed him and he's back down. He's been awake more than asleep, though... That's okay. He's super cute... I like just laying there looking at him.
