Well baby boy is here! A whooping 9lbs 4oz and 20.4 inches long. He is our little muscle man. It totally makes sense why I was in so much pain any time I moved.
Well I called at 5am and they said just come in when you're ready. Okay no biggie. 2 minutes later they call back and say get here now your surgery is at 0730. Apparently ob forgot to tell me I had a surgery time. So then I get out I bed and dd is just walking in wide awake. So that was perfect timing. Then my friend texts me telling me her 4 year old has a 103 fever but that she will keep them separated. So I text option C and I'd say between we dropped her off and C went to get her it wasn't more then an hour and they kept them apart.

So we were officially on our way at 0549. That's with me doing my hair and make up quick. Get to the hospital and they get my iv started on the first try, I have rolly veins. We do some paperwork etc. about 0700 my ob comes in and says " well your contracting great so I would like to check you one last time for kicks". As soon as I see his face struggling look I knew we were at nada. And yup nada. So they finish getting me ready. I meet all the different nurses etc. about 0740 they walk me down. Do my spinal and by 0819 we have a big boy! It actually took a little longer then we thought to get him out he was so much bigger then we expected. So my stomach is sore from the tugging and pulling. Everyone goes "really 9lbs" and we go "yeah we are just as surprised". I only gained 23lbs. Dd was exactly 3 lb lighter. His Nb clothes barely for. Recovery was super quick and fast and being without him or dh for an hour was nice lol. The nurse asked if I wanted a 15 extra minutes and I said nah I should go up. But she heard how big he was and brought me back herself to see him . Everyone loves him.

He is such a good feeder too. It's like he invented it! A lot less fussy then dd. but I think she was fussy because we were all stressed with her being our first and had lots of visitors. But I feed him,change him and back in his glass bassinet he goes and he goes right to sleep till I wake him up. The only other big surprise with him is his hair. It's dark blonde like my roots!! Dd had white blonde hair and it's still blond now.

And dd is doing good with him. She was tired so she was a little moody but if you didnt know her you'd be like she is so nice. She held him and kissed on him while she had lunch here. She did have some snuggle time just with mommy and then went back to our friends. We are so lucky they were there to help. They are even going over to let the dogs out. We keep saying thank you since it was litterally last minute. Dh is good. He is all over the baby and so patient with helping me. Hopefully our truck gets finished tomorrow. Just gotta get the insurance to okl the new amount quoted. But the Malibu we have as a rental has 1200 miles and is super nice So my mom will be here late tomorrow and stay till Tuesday. Incision. Is okay. Let's see that's about it. Thanks for the nice words.

My 3 year old and my big baby lol. His hand is only a quarter size smaller then hers. So glad I didn't get Nb g diapers lol

Re: Big boy is here :) (short story)

aww congrats, that is a big boy! My DD had dark blonde (almost brown) hair when she was born...about 3 mths later or so it was white blonde and still is (lighter than your DD's) I can't wait to see what my little man has on his head! If he is like his daddy it will be nothing
