Kai's story...

He is asleep for the moment so I'm gonna try to give you some details.

They broke my water at 9 and had the pitocin started by 9:30. It didn't take long for the contractions to get strong and hard and close together. At 11:30 the nurse checked me and I was a 5-6. Shortly after this I asked for some demerol. She had to call the dr and get the ok. It felt like that took forever. I got the demerol around 12:10. About 15 minutes later I was feeling the need to push. Another nurse checked and said I was complete and they called the dr. While we were waiting for the dr the whole room would yell at me everytime I tried to push. Dr. got there and I pushed for 30 minutes and Kai entered the world at 12:59 pm.

He weighed 9lbs 6oz and was 20.5" long.

He is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I can't believe that he is mine and I get to keep him. I feel like I have to pinch myself all the time to make sure this isn't a dream.

It was a long and hard road to get here, but it was so worth it. He truly is a miracle. And we are truly blessed to be his parents.

November 17th

Well it looks like Kai's birthday will be 11/17. Unless he decides to come on his own before that. On monday I will be 10 days overdue and we are gonna induce.

I really wanted to avoid an induction, but it would have to happen on thursday, but Monday works out better. My mom will be coming into town on Sunday afternoon. I am praying that he will come on his own late sunday or early monday.

I'll keep you posted!!

Still no baby. I told Josh it was my fault for being such a good mom. I have made him waaaay to comfy in there. I'm sure it is a rookie mistake!!

I have a NST today. They will do a sono and I will get to see my baby again. Of course I would rather see him in person, but this is the next best thing. I am really hoping she will not say he is getting too big. I do have a feeling he is gonna be really long though. I guess I will find out today.

Nothing else going on really. Oh wait ya today is my birthday. The big 3 0. Luckily i haven't really had time to think about how old I am and that it is just down hill from here!!!

The turkey is still baking...

Not much to update. Dialated to a 3 and 90% effaced. Just waiting for him to decide for him to make his entrance. He is not due for another 4 days so we are just waiting. My dr will let me go 2 wks overdue but I am praying that won't be the case. I am against inducing but he better come out soon or I might be considering it!!

I see the dr again on wed. I will update if there is anything exciting going on!!

But until then enjoy some of belly pics that my very talented friend Beth did...

This one is my favorite!!
