As many of you know I was scheduled for a c-section on Monday, December 21st at 7:30am. We live about an hour from the hospital so we knew we had to get up at 3am to get ready and be there to check in by 5:30am. We had gotten everything ready the night before and went to bed.
At 2am I woke up with contractions and couldn’t sleep anymore so I told my husband I was just going to get up and start getting ready since I couldn’t sleep through my contractions anymore. I got up and took a shower and started getting ready. My contractions were getting stronger so I told my husband that he better get up and get ready too. We left at 3:30am and I was definitely in labor. They were coming every 5 minutes and were very strong.
My wonderful OB doctor held my hand as I contracted while they placed the spinal and finally I had relief! Aiden made his wonderful arrival at exactly 6am! I was relieved to be done with labor and have a healthy wonderful little boy! Dad was super excited and got to peak over the curtain during my c-section and watch him come out. He was 7 pounds 11 1/2 ounces and 21 inches long.
So Mr. Aiden decided he couldn’t wait a few more hours until the scheduled time 🙂 He was ready to come out a little earlier! Big sister Danika loves him so much and has turned into such a little mommy with him. I am so surprised and delighted at how well she has adjusted to having him home and how much she really loves having him here.
Thank you so much for your support and for being such wonderful readers!
