It was a pretty uneventful story but here goes!

We had a scheduled induction for Sunday, September 4th. We were to call the hospital at 8AM to make sure they didnt have a bunch of ladies that went into labor and to make sure they still had room for me. So I called at 8 and they said to come right in they only had 1 lady that was in labor right then. So i finished packing DD's bag and waitied for SO to finish getting ready. We were out late the night before at a wedding dance for one of his friends so we didnt get much sleep the night before. We arrived at the hospital around 10AM and went to our L&D room. Our nurse was AMAZING!! She was the nicest nurse we had the whole time i LOVED her! We got admitted in and they called the on call dr to get the orders. They had decided to just break my water and see if i progressed from there. They had also decided to do an u/s to make sure he was still head down since he was breech for so long. So at 11:04am a resident ( i think thats what he was, he was a dr in training ) did a quick u/s and broke my water. I decided to get up and walk the halls to get labor started. It didnt take long before i couldnt handle walking down the halls any more. About 11:30 i was back in the room and sitting on a ball. A nurse came in and joked that i needed to hurry up so and have little man so didnt miss lunch around 2:00 i kept telling the nurse that i had to push and she didnt beleive me she told me not to push and she would check me. I was at a 9 but had a "lip" left so they made me wait a little longer and keep rolling back and forth on the bed (the most painful thing ive ever had to do) finally they said if i really thought i had to push to go ahead and try. Well to their suppise my first push they saw the tip of his head. So people started running around the room to get things ready. I had gotten a shot of pain meds in my iv less than an hour ago so the nicu team was in there as well. It took me about 12 pushes and he was out! WAY bigger than i thought he would be! 8 lbs 10 oz 20 1/2 inches 14" head. He was perfect.

He was so lethargic in the hospital he hardly ate anything. He was down to 7lbs 12 oz when we left. Two days after we were home we had a dr. appt and he was down to 7lbs 10oz. He had billi checks once a day for 4 days and we are on weight checks once a week. It has been a struggle to get him back up to birth weight! As of Monday he is 8lbs 6oz, so 4oz's to go! He is nursing like a champ so hopefully he gains the last few oz's this week! He will be a month old on Sunday already! I cant beleve how fast time is going!
