Max is HERE!!!!!!



I had some non painful contractions all weekend, so monday morning (sept. 13th) I went to the doctor just to get checked out. Turns out I was 4cm and 80%. So we went to the hospital just to get hooked up and looked at. About 6 hours later I was still 4cm 90% and the doctor asked if I wanted my water broken to speed things up, since I was having regular contractions. HECK YES!! haha. So at 3pm my water was broken. Around 4:30 they put me on pitocin. Then my contractions got super super painful. I made it to 5cm and was stuck. More and more painful, so I got some IV drugs, still super painful, and tons of back labor. So I caved and asked for an epidural. They stuck it in and let it run and it felt like my left leg was struck my lightening. He had messed it up. I said I didn't want him to try again, but he had to I guess? So second try. My left side worked but it made my right side twice as painful. So he trippled my medication through it to try and "push it through" and I had to lay on my right side. This was more painful then anything. I told him that only my left side was working and he said he had given me to much to take it out and try again just yet. O my goodness. So round #3. It worked about 15 minutes later. I'm still not sure if it was worth it. I started pushing at 12:30 am and Maximus Jude was born at 2:18 am. Sept 14, 2010. 7lbs 5oz. 19.5" 36.6weeks gest.

I will update more later, but he is AMAZING! hes so sweet and good!

The one picture Max was only 3 minutes old. When they laid him on my belly he already had his eyes open. The second one he is almost 2 days old.

Cerclage OUT

Wow. It seems like I was just praying about my cerclage going in. 22 weeks ago. 22 weeks. That is a very long time. So much has changed in my life since then.

I had an ultrasound yesterday since my fundal height was measuring about 6 weeks ahead. Turns out he is averaging about a week ahead. And weighs about 6 lbs 12oz.

So my cerclage was taken out today. Ouch. I got to see it tho, pretty neat. Seeing that little piece of extra thick fishing line type thing is what saved my sons life. I truly believe that.

I'm having contractions, but not close enough together yet.

Thanks again for all the prayers, I'm glad I get to tell you some good news. =)

Woah. =)

Miah passed away 1 year and 1 month ago.
Max's due date is in 35 days and I'm 35 weeks pregnant.
He most likely wont make it to his due date, but I'm beyond relieved we are already 35 weeks. At my appt. on Monday we found out he was measuring 6 weeks ahead (he has been measuring about a week ahead) so I have an ultrasound on the 7th, and my cerclage is coming out on the 8th. I'm already funneled to the stitch. So Max may be here in a little over a week. WOAH.
