Well, Hello there! Did you miss me?
I have taken a bit of a break from work and my blog as well, Why? Because I FINALLY popped!
Yep, 5 am December 31st (my Husbands Birthday) I woke him up.
He had taken sleeping pills that night and we didn't get to sleep until around 1 am!
you can only imagine how sleepy he was!
I called my Mom bright and early and of course we called the Hospital.
Adam made sure to get the snow off the car and load anything we needed, while I changed my clothes and talked to my mom a bit on the phone. Why wasn't I freaking out like they did in movies?
Honestly, My water broke..slowly. And the Hospital was a little over 30 miles away. I wasn't in any pain, so I figured I was ok.
I will admit that that was the LONGEST drive to town I have ever been on! HA!
We got to the hospital and set up in our fancy Hospital room (no joke, this Hospital is NICE!)
Adam was able to take a nap while we waited, and waited..
contractions and stronger ones coming along.. WHOA buddy, I tried to make it through..
I ended up getting the epidural and before we knew it, It was time to start pushing.
I wont lie, I had eaten at 11pm the night before and it was only some Ice Cream (crazy dairy cravings!)
I was SO hungry, which was causing me to get light headed and weak. But I pulled through with the help and support of my wonderful Husband, and after a few times of getting sick and being put on oxygen We finally met our Baby Boy!
I heard that cry of his and started crying myself, my Husband had started crying too!
1640(4:40pm) our Son was Finally here! Yep, a Short 12 Hours of Labor!
He was alert, and wide eyed!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM, It's a BOY!
When we finally received the weight and length I was surprised! Its no secret that I had a BIG pregnant belly! Joseph was just over 6lbs and 20 inches long! Skinny little legs and a skinny little body.
-3 Months Later-
My favorite part is when Joseph wakes up in the mornings, even on the nights he doesn't sleep too well. As soon as I Look at him with my groggy eyes and say "Kiddo, we need more sleep!" he lets our a BIG smile and a ton of wiggles. I have never felt so full in my heart.
And Moms, let me tell you. Watching your little one getting shots.. Everyone told me that It was hard on the Mother, I thought "yeah right" Oh no, I almost cried just watching his face in pain! But he pulled through and got some much needed rest!
I have a whole new look on life now, It's not just about myself and my Husband. We are thinking and acting for our little guy. We moved into a House right out of the Hospital.we've lost sleep, and for a while there I was forgetting to eat and take care of myself!
My advice to any new mother, Don't push yourself for the first 3 months. You just created LIFE! Don't make yourself feel guilty for having a messy house, focus on just ONE goal every day.. Even if that goal is to just enjoy a hot shower while your Little one sleeps.
Even Super Woman needs a day of rest!
