We are home...

Ok, we've been home for almost a week now but I am just now getting back into the daily groove of things. Devlin Matthew was born on August 20th @ 4:58pm weighing 9lbs 1oz and 19 1/2" long. I went in for my induction at 5am and almost 12 hours later pushed out the big boy who I didn't think was going to engage into my pelvis at first. lol Now if you remember at my last appt we were expecting a 8lb baby not a 9lb but with my GD I'm not totally surprised. Everything went smoothly though and he arrived without either of us having any problems. We are adjusting still since Matt went back to work yesterday, I am on my own most of the day. So far so good.

So I started scrapping again and have a few pages to share of the little guy and then one of Miss Tally swimming from a few weeks ago.

That's it for today, I'll be back soon with hopefully more pages.

First let me say....We are fine!

Last night while carrying Tally downstairs after her nap, my foot slipped off one of the last steps and I landed on my rear pretty hard. (was carrying that extra 35lbs of toddler) It freaked us all out since I'm so close to the end here. I've already been tsk'd many times last night for carrying her in the first place so I don't need anymore of that. lol I called the on call doctor who had me sent over to Labor & Delivery to be monitored for a few hours. Got in there and hooked up, his heartbeat was fine. Even started moving around for us. I was having mild irregular contractions and was dilated to about a 1 1/2cm... so nothing that was going to keep me admitted. So I was ok'd to go home a little after 10pm. I have an appt tomorrow afternoon in which I'll probably be checked again to see if I've dilated more since. I realized something after what happened last night....I need to pack my freaking BAGS! So that is on my to-do list today. I have to get my bag together with his stuff and I have to get Tally a bag together for her night over at a friends house while I'm in labor. Might have one more post before Monday, otherwise I'll post as soon as I get settled in a room after his arrival!

Just a fast update from today's appointment. I'm dilated to a measly 1cm and he's up high, so far up I think I was assaulted during the exam! ;) It's really no biggie though since I was the same way with Tally just a few days before I went into labor. So we are still a week from Monday unless something happens beforehand!

Oops kind of late for an update ... huh ;)

Devlin has moved into position as of last Thursday. I am scheduled for an induction on Monday August 20th @ 5am. Less than 2 weeks away. Eeek! Matt painted his room over the weekend, we still have to paint the chalkboard wall like Tally's room has. Matt starts his 2 week vacation next week so I hope to get a lot done before my induction. I have another appt tomorrow and hopefully I've started to dilate.
