He's Here and I could not be happier. Christian was born Wednesday Feb 12 at 10:19 am and weighed 6 lbs 10 oz and was 20 inches long. I will post my whole birth story later but on Tuesday I went to see the high risk dr and my blood pressure was really high and it has been creeping higher and higher the past few weeks so the high risk dr called my dr and he wanted me to go immediately to labor and delivery to be induced. Of course I was freaking out. I have never had any blood pressure issues with any of my other pregnancies. So I drive across town to the hospital and of course I was alone because DH never goes with me to any of my appointments. My dr was waiting on me and he calmed me down.

Thankfully my blood pressure started coming down once they got me hooked up to all the monitors. My dr wanted to wait until Wednesday to induce so they just monitored me Tuesday night. My dr broke my water at 8:35 on Wednesday and Christian was born at 10:19 am. it was a very fast labor. And somehow I did it with no pain meds at all which I'm so thankful for. This was my only natural child birth and it was by far my best. I will post more about that later.

Here are some pics of my sweet baby boy..




My husband says this is his Dirty Harry look..lol




Things have been a little nutty here since he was born but I'm hoping that they settle down in the next few days so I can get back on JM and catch up with everybody.

Amy thanks for updating everybody for me.

Congrats! He's beautiful!! If things go from "nutty" to regular in a few weeks, I'm gonna be a little jealous! You'll have to share your secrets we're still nutty and I only have one!
