I had my baby!!

Maximus Daniel made his screaming entrance on May 2nd at 12:40pm weighing 8lbs, 11oz. He is doing wonderful and is absolutely handsome. Neal and I brought him home on May 5th and even though adjusting has been a learning experience, I couldn't be happier.

I can't believe after almost 3 years I finally have my son in my arms. It's been a long journey, but so very worth it in the end.

Holy Cow....

Basically, I'm due May 7th, but will be having a c-section on May 2nd. That means there's about 31 days until Max will make his entrance into the world. Unless of course, he decides to come early, which I'm cool with. :)

I honestly can not believe I have made it this far. I can not wait to meet him and hold him. Max truly is our little miracle. Of course though, I still can't help but to worry that something will still go wrong at some point. I try not to let it take over in my mind, but the thoughts still linger.

Honestly, this pregnancy has been totally uneventful. Not once were we told anything that we needed to be really worried or concerned about.  Wow, I'm still in shock that I've only got 31 days left. I really hope the time goes quickly. I'm not one of those women who loves being pregnant. I can't wait to have my body back. I won't go into too much 'bitching' now. I'll save that for a later time.

May 2nd is also Max's dad's birthday. He is so excited to be able to share his birthday with his son.

I had my shower a couple of weeks ago and it was great. We received so many great gifts and I'm so thankful for everyone who came.

Max's nursery is all set up and ready for him. We're waiting on a couple of pieces of furniture, but not ones that are desperately needed. We have his crib and changing table, the most important pieces right now.

Sorry for the uneventfulness, but sometimes, it's the greatest gift you can receive!!

22 weeks along

I can't believe I've made it this far with out one single issue!! Last time I went to the Dr. was just before Christmas for my level 2 u/s and our baby was measuring over 1 week ahead. Such great news to hear. We've learned that we're having a boy and his name is Maximus Daniel. The Dr. didn't change my due date, so it's still set for May 7 2011 and I can't wait for him to get here. I still have to go over my birthing plan with my Dr. so he's aware of what I want and hopefully things will go as close to planned as possible. We still have to find furniture and our bedding is on back order till the end of February. I can't believe this is really happening!! I also am shocked that we're having a boy. I was certain in the beginning it was a girl because of timing. Either way, as long as I get to bring a baby home, I'm happy.

My next appt is January 13th and I hope it's followed by good news.
