    Happy Hoidays...from our new little man, Riley!

    I am very excited to share with you the birth of our son, Riley Edward...

    Riley Edward was born Dec 22nd at 854 PM.
    He weighed in at 5 lbs 12.6 oz and is 19.5inches long.
    He's a little peanut but healthy and doing great!

    L+D story...

    So, I went into work on Thursday. Wasn't actually scheduled to work, but stopped by to drop off some presents for our family that we sponsered this year. I had been feeling a little more puffy, and since I my BP had been slightly elevated at my appt on Tuesday, I asked one of my fellow nurses to check my BP. I was totally suprised when it was 152/95! I had NEVER had such a BP before. So I called my OB and they told me to come to the office to get checked. In the office, my BP was still high. Although I was feeling well and doing ok, my Doc decided to induce me before things got bad with the pre-eclampsia. I had been spilling protein into my urine as well. So, I was admitted to the hospital for induction!

    It all happened so fast from there. They started pitocin. Then about an hour later, they broke my water. Got my epidural about an hour after that, and about 4 hours into everything had my baby boy. I guess I pushed for about 20 minutes. My OB didn't even make it there in time, because he went home since he didn't expect everything to happen so fast. It was a little rough at the end of the delivery because Riley was coming sunny side up and his heart rate was dropping. They decided they needed to get him out quick and I had to have a nasty episiotomy...but whatever they needed to get him out ok was fine by me. Riley came out screaming. Scored an 8 then 9 on his Apgars, and has been doing just great since.

    We are so in love with him, and he is such a good little boy. He is eating very well. I ended up deciding to nurse, and he has latched on great from the beginning. Big brother Taylor is doing great with him, and both his mommys are just so proud of our two boys.

    Thank you all for your encouragement and thoughts.

    Thanks everyone! Yes Amy, that is Taylor holding him. I think he was a bit nervous, but he is doing so well with him!
