Sorry that I have been gone so long! Once the virus hit my system in April, I was scared to come back. I have been lurking for a couple days and all seems well, so I went ahead and logged in. I have missed you ladies and seeing who has had thier babies. I can't believe how many we had in May!!

Tuesday was a busy day for me and I didn't really think anything would happen over night, but I was wrong!! I went and worked out in the morning and the trainer said to me, "I feel vibes and I think you are going to have your baby today!!" I said ok, well, I'll probably see you tomorrow then. I went home and then Xavier and I went to the mall and to the park because I was going stir crazy. Still nothing after that and I was bored, so we went to a local park so Xavier could see the some dinosaurs. Got home, DH fixed dinner, so we ate and had our normal night. Gave Xavier a bath and did his night time routine. DH finally came to bed and we talked for a while and then went to sleep. At 11:45 I went up to go the bathroom for the gazillionth time. Since I get up so much, I have been doing the leaning forward thing to try and empty my bladder, so as I did that and I heard a pop. I thought it was nothing, so I went and laid in bed and about 6 minutes later had a contraction. It wasn't bad so I sat there another five minutes and had another. I decided to get up and go downstairs to use the bathroom again so I could check with the light on. I go to the bathroom and there is my plug tinged pink, so I wiped and there was a little pink. I decided to wait to see if I had anymore contractions. I decided to try one more time to go potty and there was a ton of blood, so I knew. I went and woke up DH and told him I think today will be our baby's birthday. I called my BFF and told her my water broke and it was time, but I didn't know what to do with Xavier. She said her husband would be there and that her dad would come watch thier daughter. Then I called my mom and she said she was on her way. DH and I went about getting all the last little things packed for the hospital. I decided to go outside to wait for Brett (BFF's DH) since it was nice evening. By this time my contrations were about 4 minutes apart and trying to walk them off. Brett finally got there 20 minutes later and we went to the hospital. Thank goodness we are only 10 minutes from the hospital!! I had three or four contractions during the ride there. I must have been a sight. The only way I was semi-comfortable was kneeling on the front seat hugging the back. I think DH was doing 90 to get us there!! We got to the hospital right about 1:00 in the morning. I was having killer contractions and they were right on top of each other. We had to go in through the ER since it was so late and my BFF was there waiting for us. She went up with me and DH went to go park the car. When we got to the L&D room, my contractions were so bad, I couldn't even change out of my clothes. My BFF and a nurse ended up having to take my clothes off and get me in a gown. They checked me and I was so effaced and dilated that they couldn't even tell how far it was. There was no time for drugs, but I didn't want them to begin with. I was begging the doctor to hurry up so I could push and get him out. I was yelling at him and begging him to hurry, luckily it was a doctor I liked. DH wasn't even up there yet when I was yelling at the doctor!! I think I had five contractions before he came and then the doctor told me I could push. I think I pushed him out in 6 contractions. His shoulders got stuck, but I just kept pushing and he was ok. Trevor Ryan was born at 1:28am on June 3, 2009 in less than two hours. 8lb 11oz and 21.25 inches long. Much bigger than Xavier!! They say your subsequent labor goes quicker and they really do!!

Oh and a couple pics... I'll leave them for a couple days....
