She's Here!!

So it's three in the morning at I can't sleep so I figured I would post some of her pictures from my phone because I don't know when I'm going to have time to load pictures from my camera. Well she finally made it on Friday, October 15th at 5:55 am. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 21 inches long. She is dark and hairy. She has a ton of curly black hair and so far she is a really good baby and loves to snuggle with her daddy. We had a hard time agreeing on a name for her but we finally picked Claire Anne Rogers.
Her delivery went like this....
I went to my doctor's appt Thursday morning. DR said I was at a two and about 50% effaced. He joked and said wish my nails were longer I just break your water right now. Well my blood pressure was a little high so he sent me over to triage to have it checked out. He asked me if I was ready to have the baby today if they needed to induce me. I said sure, and thought I was staying in the hospital. So I called Chase and had him come down just in case. Well my labs came back fine so they sent me home. DR said come back on Mon or Tues if I didn't go on my own. Well I was a little disappointed and started to think about it. It was the weekend, my Dr was on call that night, I was tired of being prego, and I really didn't want to drive back on Mon just to be induced if they could do it today. So I called the Dr back after lunch. He finally called back and said he was game for breaking my water. So we packed our crap and headed to the hospital at about 5:30 pm. We got into a room, hooked up to an iv and waited for the Dr to break my water. They tried to break it and was having trouble. So they took a break. They started me on a light dose of pitocin to get the baby to drop and see if it would help things progress. Dr came back and was finally able to break my water. Contractions started progressing. They started to get ugly so I got my epidural. Relief. After I got my epidural they checked me again I was at a 3-4 and 60% effaced. I continued to progress on schedule. I hit an eight about one and was fully effaced. Baby was still really high so they had me try a bunch of different things to get her to drop. Nothing worked. Because she wouldn't drop I got stuck at an eight. Finally about 5 am Dr said if I was still at an eight and the baby hadn't dropped they were going to throw in the towel. Nothing changed so cue C-section. They prepped me and she was born at 5:55 am.
We are home now and just trying to get back to life with our new little girl in the mix. Kael isn't really interested in her and just calls her the baby sister. And when she cries he just stares at her like, what's your problem? Maybe when she gets a little older he will like her more. ha ha. we will see. That's all folks.

Bucket Head!!

This guy is seriously just one big bubble of personality. I think that's the only thing he got from his father. Seems he got my nerdyness and bossiness and my family's looks. He seriously cracks me up and tries my patience all at the same time. My sweet Aunt Kim gave Kael a bunch of little horsey figures and he loves to play with them. My mom had a bucket that she gave him to put all his little horsies in. He decided to use it has a hat the other day. Apparently when I was about his age I did the same thing with a halloween bucket. Then I would call my self a bucket head. So here's my little goofy bucket head. If I can get my hands on the picture in my baby book I'll do a comparison picture. We look so much a like it's crazy. He is a major mama's boy for sure.

So the count down for this baby to come is on. I was hoping I would have her on the tenth so her birthday would be 10-10-2010! Oh well, I tried but guess she wasn't ready. So I have only seven days left until my due date, which is the 18th by the way. I have been working on getting my house clean the last two weeks. Sad, I know, that it's taking me that long. Seems right when I got my "nesting" bug I got a super awesome sinus infection again. Seriously, I hate sinus infections!!!! When I'm pregnant, if I sneeze too much it turns into an infection and then it gets really bad with in a day. It will settle itself in my ears and chest. Grrrr. It will all be over soon. So last week I mostly took what drugs I could and sprayed lysol everywhere so that I didn't have sicky germs in the house if I had the baby. Now that I don't have a super migraine from all the sinus pressure I can disinfect my house, ha ha. So hopefully the next time I post I'll have a baby girl, and she'll have a name. ha ha. We seriously can't think of a name for this little girl so we are just going to wait until we see her. Hopefully that will be enough to help us make a decision. Well thats all folks.
