I spoke TWO soon!

So maybe I jumped the gun a little in venting on my blog a little too soon. We had our little boy only two days after my "emotional unload" and yes............Now Sophi shares the same birthday as her little brother Cash! I can't believe it, out of 365 days in a year, they were born exactly 2 years apart to the date. The similarities were crazy, they were both 20 inches long, and Cash only weighed an ounce more than Sophi. It seems that 10am also seems to be a consistent time with both of them. My water broke with Sophia at 10:00 am and with Cash my contractions were coming 4 min apart at home starting at 10:00 am. I called my docs office just to double check how close my contractions were suppose to be in order to head to the hospital cause I couldnt remember. I had a 1:45 appt scheduled that day, but after I talked to the nurse, she asked if we could make it in at 10:35 and she'd have the doctor just check me and see whats up. So we packed up all our bags, loaded Sophia and headed to the office. She checked me and I was at 5 cm and 100%. She asked if we packed everything or if we had to head home because she didnt suggest taking too long heading over to the hospital. We got all checked in and situated in the delivery room about 11:15 or 11:30. I hung out for about an hour with my contractions, had the epidural about 12:30, told them I was feeling the need to push about 12:45ish or 1:00 after my epidural. The nurses asked me what I was at when I went to the office at 10:35, told them, they asked if I was checked again by anyone, told them no, so they checked again. The nurse was a little in shock that she thought I was at 9 cm, so she asked another nurse to check and that nurse said I was already a 10 and we needed to get the doctor there. Needless to say the doctor rushed in and delivered Cash at 1:33. Nuts! I never expected things to go so fast. Good thing I didnt hang out at home much longer timing my contractions. I might have had him in the hospital hallway or something! Things are great thought, hes a very good baby and we feel blessed for a second time with a great child. Eventually I'll have time later to post more pictures, but this is all I have easy access to at the time. We're postponing Sophi's birthday celebration to Monday the 8. So I'll have a post hopefully shortly after. Hope you enjoy!

Are you KIDDING me!

I have to say, I have NEVER been so frustrated, anxious, and impatient all at the same time! I know I'm not like some women who go over their due date (lets wait and see) but I'm going to be 39 weeks this coming Friday and I've been prepared to have this baby since I did the whole preterm labor thing at 34 weeks!

I dont know what this little guy is thinking! I'm convincing myself (for my sanity) that he's waiting a little longer because he's hanging out with his little girl cousin in heaven (Ben and Megans) and having SO much fun that he can't stand to head down here and leave her! Right?!

Wish me luck that this is the week! But lets skip over Wednesday which is Sophis birthday, I'd feel bad if they had to share the same date.
