Baby Matthew is here!
« on: June 25, 2011 at 07:58 PM »
Hey everyone!

Baby Matthew was born on Sunday, June 19th(Father's Day) at 4:26pm at 38+5 weeks.  He weighed a whopping 9lbs 4oz and is 21.5" long.  We are home and doing very well.

My labor started early Sunday morning while at Starbucks.  We went home and were told to monitor contractions for another 45 mins.  They were coming every 10mins and we decided to go ahead to L&D.  I had been 4-5cm dilated since 32weeks.  The doctor was quite suprised to find that I was 8cm!  Big rush to get me admitted, start IV antibiotics(GroupB +) and get epidural.  Water broke around 3pm and pushed for 45 minutes.  Everyone was suprised at the weight of Matthew.
Baby is feeding and sleeping very well.
Thanks to everyone for the support, stories and information during this crazy time of our lives.  Bedrest is totally worth it and really works!  I had wonderful help from friends and family to care for our 15mth old during the last 14 wks.  Best wishes to everyone going through this...the sacrifice is totally worth it!
