First Doctor’s Visit

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Evan had his first visit with the pediatritian today. Everything was a-ok! The ladies at the front desk were oooing and ahhing at him sucking his thumb in the waiting room. He had lost about 8% of his birth weight upon discharge from the hospital, so we were happy to hear that he had started packing on the ounces!

Poopy

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

I never thought that I would hope for an encounter with feces of any kind, but that’s exactly what I’ve been doing today.  We were supposed to get 3 poopy diapers today.  We had one at 4am and haven’t had one all day & night since.  Hope we have better luck tomorrow.

(Update: nothing to worry about!  The next day things were flowing like crazy.  We could hear big rumbles down under and we had lots of presents from the little guy!)

He’s Here!

We’ve got a happy and healthy baby boy!

Becky’s water broke at 5:36am yesterday, so we headed to the hospital, but she wasn’t having any contractions once we got there.  At 11:30am they decided to induce.  We didn’t start pushing until about 10:00 pm and just after midnight the doctors decided a C-Section would be best for the baby.  Everything went smoothly from there.  It was incredible to hear those first reassuring cries and we both fell in love when we got to meet him for the first time.  Mom and baby had quite an ordeal, but they both did great and are pretty tuckered out.

Born at 12:40am,  7 lbs 12 ounces and 20 in long.

The name and pictures to come shortly.

Well… there are 3 days left until the due date.  The doctor checked today, but no signs of the slightest dilation.  He must be pretty happy in there.

We’re in the home stretch…
He’s been very active the last couple of days, rolling around a lot in Becky’s belly, probably trying to find the way out.
The nursery is all set up and awaiting his arrival.

Ultrasound – 36 weeks

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

We had our second growth ultrasound today.  He is so smushed in there, it is harder to see his little face now, but the doctor estimated his current weight at 6lbs 11 ounces.  He is growing fast!  His head is still measuring about 2 weeks ahead of schedule…eeik!
