My doctor wanted to induce me on July 8, so she told me to call in at 6am to see if they could admit me. They didn't have a room for me, so I ended up having to call every couple hours, until they finally had me come in at 3:30pm. Once we got there I didn't start pitocin until 7pm. Labor started, and I felt contractions, but they weren't too painful. The doctor checked me and said that the baby's head had moved to the side, and that he was no longer in labor position. I tried a few exercises for the next 30 minutes to try and get him to move back down. When she came to check me again he had moved the complete opposite direction, and he was completely breach!
Seeing how hot Scott was in scrubs made it a little easier.
Stubborn little guy!
These are some pics that the doctor took...
Scott brought him over to my face so I could kiss him and snuggle him. I instantly loved him to pieces and got to share a few sweet moments with him before they made Scott take him to the nursery, so I could recover.
Once I was in the recovery room, Scott brought Max to me and I got to hold him for the first time.
This is what I wrote in my journal about it...
" I was crying and telling him how much I love him. I was so happy to have him in my arms and to be kissing his face. He is such a huge blessing to our family, and I feel so lucky to be his mom."
Some of the people that came to see Max in the hospital were...
Grandma Judy and Grandpa Greg
Jessie, Kylie, and Aubrey
Erin and Romney
Brent and Andrea's family
Kevin and Holley's family
My favorite visitor was Porter. He ran in and came in my bed to cuddle me.
He was so sweet with his new brother.
He kept giving him kisses and he wanted to hold him a lot.
Max is perfect, and we love him so much!
This is his first car ride.
