My Birth Story

Hi Everyone,

How amazing it is that some days it seemed like forever before my baby boy would be here, and now he is 19 days old. Time is such a funny thing. Now I want it to slow down so I can take in all of this-- his newborn smell, his perfect nails, his wrinkled long fingers, his so very soft hair the color of wheat as it brushes over my cheek. I close my eyes and breathe it all in.
I look at my older boys now 5 and 3 and wonder why I can't remember all of the little things that I hold so dear to my heart right now.

So hold on to the little things.

I went to the hospital at 5:15 AM Aug 1st 2008 for my check in time. I was on time, (amazingly) but there were some emergency situations so my c-section got bumped back. That allowed me to sit and think about all the what if's. When it was finally my time to go in, I was so nervous. I tried to keep my cool, but broke down into a panic stricken mess when they were supposed to administer the spinal. They quickly gave me something to relax me and I finally did. The procedure started shortly there after and my baby boy was brought into this world at 8:54 AM. Just perfect. 19 inches long (although they may have been wrong because 2 weeks later he measured 20 1/4") a soft cry, content through all the measuring and cleaning. I fell in love from the first moment and although my recovery was very rough, very painful from an infection at the c-section site, he was my lifting spirit. He has been so good, so sweet that I forget about the trauma to my body. He is my angel.
His name is Treyce Gabriel
I also had my tubes tied at delivery as well as the cord blood saved.
It goes by so fast ladies. Hold on tight, it is an amazing ride.
Best of luck to everyone.

Re: My Birth Story

Congratulations to you! I cant wait to have my little guy out here listening to his cries and watching him sleep and taking in every little detail about him. I have about 2 1/2 or 3 more weeks to go only if my doctor decides to induce me at 39 weeks. Best of luck with your newborn!
