I woke up the morning of the 12th with a really bad feeling that everything was NOT okay...and it turns out that I was right. (Score one for a mother's intuition ;) Full post to come later, but the short version is: Baby started getting smaller and moving less. I went in for an NST and biophysical profile (with the use of ultrasound) and baby wasn't doing good. So, they sent me straight to the hospital (okay, I went to Cafe Rio and scarfed a burrito first) and induced labor with pitocin. Baby (and his heart) was a rock star through the whole thing. We had an 8 hour labor and BOOM, we had a son! (a really, really cute, fun one who totally snores in his sleep and has his big brother's identical lips.) We are over the moon, and I am really tired! Love you all! Thank you for taking this journey with us!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! SO happy for you!! What a super lucky boy to be joining your cute family. 7 days till my due date =). I can't wait. And thank you for the most recent post. I remember after having Tayson crying at the drop of a hat and feeling beyond emotional. So thanks for being real and reminding me that's totally normal and hormones do eventually go back to normal!
