Finally an Update! 6 Days Deep.




I had Landon Robert on Thanksgiving morning at 3:59 AM. My water had broken the morning before at 7:30. At 12:30 my Dr. office called and informed me I had Strep B and needed to be at the hospital getting antibiotics. By 2:00 I arrived at the hospital and was hooked up with an IV and the monitors. My contractions did not pick up for a few hours and by then I was only 2 cm. I was miserable that it was taking that long since Logan came so quickly.. My contractions stopped at that point.. by 9 or 10:00 PM I was hooked up to Pictocin. From there things moved much more quickly. I got my Epi by 11:00 and by 3:00 I was more then ready to be pushing. They had me try a practice push and stopped my half way into it. The doctor rushed in to get dressed and set up..Less then 10 minutes and 3 pushes later my son was born. I had no tears, only a rug burn type. He was born 6 pounds 10 ounces and 19 3/4 inches. Very similar in height and weight to my first son and both were born at 37.3 weeks gestation.

Life has been a bit wild at home. I am waking every 45 minutes to an hour to feed the little man and getting up with a toddler freaking out.. Being dog tired, dealing with a few

Logan is having a difficult time going down for naps and sleeping. He life has been turned upside down and he is feeling it(poor guy). He has been waking a ton at night and all together refusing to go down all together.

Landon is nursing a ton.. he goes for short periods of time but often. he was not gaining well at first so we had to go back for a weight check. He is doing great as of today. Gained more then enough in the last 2 days :) (WAY TO GO)!!!
Now I am looking forward to each day getting a little easier.

I will likely not be a great blogger in the up coming weeks but I hope to get back in touch in a week or so :)

Thanks for reading.
