Tyson is here!

Baby Name: Tyson James
Date of Birth: April 21st 2009
Original Due Date: April 12th 2009
Weeks Pregnant: 41 weeks
Weight: 8lbs 10oz
Length: 21 inches

Had a scheduled induction at 1pm. Was already contracting every three minutes when I got there. Doctor broke my water, and I recieved the epi. I love the drug man lol. I was at 4cms at about 3pm and thought i'd be sat at that for a while. At about 5:45pm the doctor said it was time. I was completly shocked and so was everyone else...my bf was in the cafe getting something to eat when the doc said it was time to push. I was so worried he wasn't going to make it as they could see hair already. My BF rushed down and after about 15mins of pushing Tyson was born at 6:21pm. It was a great labor, and delivery. I am a little sore after a 3rd degree cut but am doing well. Tyson is amazing, his scores were great. Daddy and I are so in love with him. He has so much hair!! When he was coming out the nurse said he has Zac Efron hair!! LOL.

Last day before I'm a mommy!

So I'm sat at home with the dishes in the dishwasher, and doing my last load of laundry. Just trying to get things done before I leave for the hospital at 6am tomorrow. Yes, thats right. Tyson James Cox will hopefully be born tomorrow. I am overdue. My due date was last week, so the doctor thinks its a good idea to induce. I was hoping that I would go into labor by myself, but that just isn't happening. I am not progressing at all. I've been sat at 1cm, and 50% for three weeks, and Ty is just getting bigger and bigger. Its not the way I was hoping to have him, but at this point in time, anyway is fine. Although I'd rather not have a c-section. I keep doing things around the house thinking, this is the last time I'll be doing this without a baby. I put in the laundry today and said this is the last time it will just be me and Joe's laundry that I'm washing....crazy how life can change in just one day. I am praying that things go well tomorrow, and that it happens somewhat quickly. I know there are some women out there who have tried to be induced, it doesn't work and so they have to have a c-section. My I hope i'm not like that. This also may be selfish of me....but I don't want him to be too big, because I recieved lots of newborn clothes, and I wont know what to do with them!! So I sit here...thinking wow this is the last time I write these blogs without a baby!! I'm hoping that the hospital has wifi so I can bring my laptop and update on here how everything is going.
Can't wait to meet my little man!!

New House!

So we are finally moved in to our new house!! Its a cute little ranch style house with three bedrooms, a nice dining room, kitchen, living room, bathroom, basement and garage!! YAY! We moved in on Saturday...so i've been trying to get used to all the new noises while I sleep!! I love it...I feel so grown up now that we have our own house! We can finally do the baby's room! There is one room which is kinda junky at the moment just because we haven't had time to figure out where to put some of our stuff...but it will find a home eventually! Its been crazy not having internet....I missed a lot of stuff on BBC and I miss Sugar!! Thank goodness she has her own blog!! Alright thats it for now....just wanted to say we are in our house!! I'll post pics tomorrow!
Oooooo and my shower is on Saturday! How exciting!!!!

Baby Shower

So I am getting really excited about my baby shower, and honestly I am a baby registry stalker! So far out of about 60 people, 33 have said yes. Which is great, I just hope that number keeps growing!! Unfortunataly NO ONE has bought off of my registry. I know I shouldn't expect people to buy things, but from the showers i've been to or heard of, most people do come with gifts. Was making our registry a waste of time? It is a good check list for us however. But it would kinda stink if we were on our feet for 3 hours in BRU for no reason at all! I just hope people follow it as a guildline, and I don't end up getting 50 blankets and clothes that he will just grow out of in a week! Am I asking too much of people? It would be great if some people would get together and give a group gift like the swing or the travel system. Its also great that if few people buy off of the list, then at least we get 10% off whatever is left. That may be a huge help if we do end up buying the travel system and everything else!
Baby is doing fine...lots of movement...I think he's moving down some, as i've been having a lot of pressure in my pelvic region and can breath again.
House preparations are slowly moving along, although we move next week!! We still have bunches of paper work to do and buy a washer and dryer. But other than packing, I think we are almost ready to go.

Alright i'll update either the end of this week, or next week.

Update

Everything is fine :o)

Doctors Today

So I have a routine checkup today...and I have a question to ask the doctor. I'm worried i'm leaking amniotic fluid. If that is the case then they usually want to deliver the baby 24 hours from when they find out it is fluid. So what if they do deliver the baby and i'm not full term? This is one thing I have always been worried about. I'm only about 31 weeks...which is 9 weeks behind full term. The baby would only weigh 4 lbs. We haven't moved in yet...I haven't had my shower yet....We have nothing...no crib, no car seat, no bottles, NO HOUSE! What do I do? I am going nuts. Honestly if it is fluid I hope he just puts me on bed rest. I'd rather be on that than deliever my baby less than full term. But can the baby survive on little fluid? I'm worried that the doctor will yell at me...its been happening for about a week...I should have gone in earlier. I just want the best for my baby. And if that means delivering tomorrow then that is what has to happen. I just hope I don't have to. I hope its not amniotic fluid. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Baby Boy

On Thursday January 29th our life changed. We went for a scheduled sonogram at the hospital..to make sure our bundle is healthy. All the measurements were great, and weight is perfect (may be a big baby). Although I have only gained about 10lbs total, where as some people have gained 20lbs, the baby is growing. Everything else looks great, and i'm having a perfect pregnancy. The nurse then bought Joe into the room, and showed us our pride and joy. She asked if we'd like to know the sex, and we decided not to wait and to find out. Its a boy! Joe is estatic, and so am I. I have to admit, I honestly was a little sad at first to not have my baby girl, but know that I am young, and that we have plently of time to have a girl. I am very excited for my little man and cannot wait to meet him!! We have done our registry and can now update with baby boy items! My due date was also moved from April 16th to April 12th.

Our house
Right now we just wait. Closing is on February 26th, so we can move in that weekend.


Will update later this week with more news.

Sweet Blessings.
