December 31st

Well, it was quite an adventure getting ready for our little guy to make his appearance. I had been having contractions on and off for two weeks, similiar to what happened with Alyssa only these were much stronger but just when I thought we'd have to go in down they would go. Finally we went in late on the 30th and the Doc on call asked us to go and walk around the hospital for a couple of hours.

By 4am my contractions hadn't gotten any stronger but they hadn't gone down so they were all ready to send us home. Until the Doc decided to check on baby and determined that he wasn't head down like everyone had thought he was actually oblique. Laying diagonally across my belly and cozied up in my ribs, there was no way they could do anything except a C-Section. They scheduled an emergency section for 8am, here we are exhausted and waiting to go into the OR.
I wish I would have taken belly pictures and done a cast like I did with Alyssa but I was so miserable and uncomfortable during the last while that I really hadn't felt up to it. Oh well, i'll come up with some other cool things to do just for him.
