At home with Baby!
Home At Last!!! Well, its been a long few days but it turned out wonderful! Thank you all for all your prayers and posts! Its so nice to sit and read all of it this morning! For all of you who didn't get the full story I will try to give a quick summary.
I went into the Dr on Wednesday morning for my normal 38 week check up. As soon as the Dr walked in the door I could tell there was something up. Basically she started telling me they were concerned that the baby was so small and that he was continually Not getting larger from week to week. Something about being in the bottom 10th percentile and that they couldn't see what was wrong until we actually had him here. They couldn't take a chance and let him go for any longer. So she looks at me and says "It looks like we are going to have a baby today" ! What, Holy Crap, I wasn't expecting that! So I was on my way to the hospital. It was sudden and kinda scary because I didn't know what was wrong but it all turned out great! I was induced at 1:30 and Asher Daniel was born at 10:03 pm. He was a little small at 5lbs 14 oz, 18 in but he is in good health. They aren't sure what was causing the small gestational age but who cares, he's healthy and Adorable!! I will post some better pictures later but for now hopefully this will do.
To all those wondering if I watched Alias on Wednesday. I actually was going to but my epidural started wearing off right when it came on and I decided to turn it off so that I could enjoy it at a later time. :) It was good though because I ended up having him right at 10 so I would of missed half of it anyway! Oh, and isn't it kinda cool that Jennifer and I had our babies just 7 days apart?I know, I'm a dork!
Thank you guys again for All your thoughts and prayers!!! I love the fact I have people from everywhere rooting and praying for me!
