I know it's been a while since I posted. But I just wanted to let you all know that Ryan's little brother showed up a few days early.
He, like his sister, was born the day following his baby shower. I woke up on Sunday feeling a bit uncomfortable. I thought it was due to sleeping on my back. I had to go to my mother's house on Sunday morning, so I was driving and began to have mild contractions every 6-8 mins. I told her what was going on when I got her her house...her response, "AGAIN!" LOL. I told my sister ans her response was, "D--n baby showers!" HA!
I call the doctor...she says go to the hospital...I call to wake up my husband and tell him to get Ryan ready to meet my mom at the hospital so she can take her. As he's walking into the room, they make the decision to do the csection. The baby's heartrate was became erratic in response to a contraction...same as his sister. 0 centimeters dialated 70% effaced.
So now it's time to get an IV. Three people and seven attempts later...it's in! I'm used to it. I have horrible veins.
Less than two hours after arriving to the hospital...he's here. I was able to leave the hospital in two days rather than three. No pain med prescription required.
