I have a BABY!

Gabriel Quinn was born on June 21, 2010 at 1:16pm via ceserean section. 5 lb. 4 oz. and 18.5 inches long.

Yes, it was early. And yes, this post is way late. However, you won't actually know the 2nd part as I am going to fudge the date I actually post this LOL.

I got up at 6am on the 21st in order to register for my last two college classes. I graduate in May 2011. After registering I got up to get something to drink when I felt something, wasn't sure what at the moment. Upon inspection it looked like it could have been my water breaking so I called the dr's office which had me come in to the labor and delivery at the hospital. I called my hubby who for whatever reason thought it was funny. He had just gotten to work BTW. Hubby gets home, we are getting the kids ready for some friends of ours who were going to watch them and we left them with the neighbors until the friends show up. Thankfully it was only 2 of our 3 kids as the other was away for the weekend.

We get to the hospital and as I am arriving on L&D I see my doctor. YAY for luck, he is the doctor on call. They do a check to see if it was in fact my water and it was so I was scheduled for a c-section. The surgery went great, I was awake for the whole thing and got to hear my baby cry. That is the most amazing sound ever. I was only 35 weeks 3 days along so he had to go to the nursery because he was having issues breathing.

To keep this post from being extremely long, he had RDS - Respitory Distress Syndrome, basically his lungs weren't quite developed yet so they had to give him some meds to keep his lungs from collapsing. In all, he was in the hospital for 9 days.

Welcome home Peanut!
