I thought I would take this time I have while you are sleeping to tell you about the best day your dad and I have ever had. It was seven days ago when you came into our lives. I just want you to know all about that important day and all the details.
We were admitted around 2:20 and around Dr. Saunders arrived and checked me and said that the bag of waters wasn’t all the way ruptured so he broke it but I barely noticed. Your dad said, “I’ve been wanting to do that for three weeks now.” And Dr. Saunders said, “Well, you got your wish.”
At around they came and took my blood to check for signs of pre-eclampsia (which I never knew you could get during labor but you can). They ended up giving me Magnesium Sulfate to help avoid seizures.
Because I started pushing around everyone thought you would be born around 10 or . Well, it ended up taking a bit longer. Your daddy started teasing that maybe you would be born on Thanksgiving like he was if this lasted until . We were about one push away from having you here at around 11:56- so your dad said, “Maybe we should rest during the next two contractions” In my mind I didn’t think we were so close because they had been telling me for quite some time that we were almost there, so I was grateful to have a little breather. Well at another contraction started and our nurse said, “I think we’re close enough” so your dad counted “Push 1..2..3..” and you came!! I was surprised and thought to myself, “It worked this time!” And you were here at 52 seconds past midnight. A thanksgiving baby like your dad.
