Hunter is here!
Hunter decided he was ready to come last friday, June 7th! (small recap) I woke up at 2am having pretty bad contractions somewhere between 5-10 minutes apart. I was pretty annoyed by them at this point (since i'd been having contractions for weeks ) I just wanted to go back to sleep. When I went to the bathroom I realized I had lost my mucus plug. Somewhere around 4a, I realized they were getting closer together... a lot closer together, they were 2 minutes apart and painful! This went on for an hour before I decided I should have DH come home from work. I still wasnt convinced I was in labor at this point and had no intentions of going to the hospital, I had an appt at 1:45p I figured I'd make it till then. wrong lol, DH got home around 515am, and I started puking because I was in so much pain from the contractions. I called my mom at 545a to make sure she was off that day so I could bring Alexis to her. DH called the doctor and of course they said to come in. So I took a shower and off we went, steady having contractions 2 minutes apart. On the way to my moms I made the executive decision I needed to just get to the hospital and she could meet us there.
We got to the hospital around 7a and I was 5cm's and 90% effaced. The doctor still wanted me to have a csection because Hunter was expected to be 9.5lbs and with the gestational diabetes there stomachs are normally bigger and they get stuck coming out.
At 0830 Hunter was born, 9lbs 20.5 inches long. He's perfect!!! My c-section went amazing and Alexis is adjusting wonderful! I couldnt ask for anything else :)
and Here he is 1 week old :)
