Here is a not so short version of Desmond's birthday!! Enjoy....
January 25- Bed Rest due to Blood Pressure being a little high. Went to dr. at least 1x weekly sometimes 2x to check on my blood pressure and our boys heart rate. We were both doing great!!!
February 14- We went to see Dr. Carlton for our weekly check-up on Valentine's Day. I was hoping to ask to get out long enough to go out to eat. I was going a little stir crazy in the house :) Then Dr. Carlton came in and said blood pressure was a little high so let's just go ahead over to OB. She was going to induce. I bet I asked a million questions in the next 5 minutes. She told us we had time to go home and get our bags and get back to hospital. We were so nervous, excited, scared and lots of other feelings. I couldn't wait to meet our boy.
We got to the hospital about 6 p.m. Our nurses were waiting for us! The awesome nurses let Rich go and get me dinner. They even offered to turn down the lights for our romantic Valentine's day dinner haha!!! Midnight they started my medicine to induce.
February 15- Didn't make much progress. Dr. Carlton tried to break water but first time Desmond's head was too close, so she wanted to wait. Then she came back and his head was no longer down where it should be so she starting talking about a C-Section at this point.
All of our family was there or starting to get there and I went back about 10:00 a.m. I think. I was in panic mode at this point :) But Dr. C and nurses were so great. Rich came in and then I heard "Wow. He has a head full of hair!!" And I heard our little boy cry (scream) for the first time. They brought him to me and I was soooo in love!!!!!! 11:12 a.m. 7lb 3.9 oz. 18 1/2 in.
