img_2539.JPGHello all!  I apologize for being a total loser and not keeping up with the blog.  Once I started letting it go it was hard to get inspired to write again.  But now I am attempting it again! 

So a lot has happened since my post in July.  For one, Ethan was born 9/26!  The day was perfect except for the fact that my induction was bumped for 7 hrs due to the high volume of babies coming out because of the Havest Moon (yes, the full moon urban legend is true for labor & delivery as well as the ER).  Ethan was also trying to make it on his own even though we scheduled his due date.  I got pretty sick that morning for the first time in my pregnancy and was contracting quite a bit.  I think he would have made an appearence in the next 48 hours regardless.  My goal was to deliver on day shift (before 7pm).  I was 5-6cm when I got a bed at 2pm, I started pushing at 6:10, and he was born at 6:57!  Don’t get me wrong, I love our night shift nurses, but a majority of my friends work on days. 

Drew, who is the more dedicated to blogger than I started if you really want all Ethan all the time.  There are pics and videos as well as daddy’s thoughts and experiences.  We can also invite you to out Kodak albums if you really want to see 300 pics of the little guy!

So now our boy is going to be 7 weeks old tomorrow.  The first few weeks of life were great!  He ate, slept, and pooped.  Now, he still does all of those things, but has the added skill of screaming/crying during the majority of his waking moments.  It will be wonderful when he decides that life isn’t all that bad and comes out of this stage, but for now we just have to take it one day (somestimes one hour) at a time.   

Almost 33 Week Update

Yesterday was a Baboo-focused day.  I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning that went just fine.  I am very proud of myself that I can still sit myself up after lying down on the table– the doctor always reaches over to help me and I’m like, “Look, I still have some stomach muscles, buddy!”  :-)   With all the growth and movement on Baboo’s part lately, however, I imagine the next time I’ll be stranded until I receive some aid!  In any case, I tried to be charming with the comment, “I’m so glad I passed my Glucose Tolerance Test so I can eat pie for Thanksgiving!” and ended up getting a mini-lesson on how it’s still important to keep sugar intake low so as not to grow an oversized baby.  Um, yeah- but I’ll still be eating PIE!!  Maybe even three kinds!!!

Then last night, we attended the first of 5 Prepared Childbirth classes.  There were 11 couples in the class, and actually, I think our due date of Jan 4th was the second soonest after somone due on New Year’s Day.  So a totally different group than the crazies on the hospital tour.  The evening was relatively uneventful–I’ve read so many books that there wasn’t any earth-shattering learning–but we’re happy to see that the group will be entertaining in its own way.  Lots of nervous laughter, especially on the parts of the men, during various conversations and demonstrations.   I kinda felt like I was with a bunch of middle-schoolers.  But people seemed nice in general and I’m still holding out for making some new friends!

And in other news (but still kinda related to Baboo and his future baby bottles), we’re getting a new dishwasher installed today!  Hooray!!
