Photo Shoot

Yesterday Tyler enjoyed his first photo shoot with mom. I wanted to take pictures so that I could get a good shot for his birth announcement. There was no crying out of him, he tolerated all the flashing. We have such a good boy. He sleeps well at night, only getting up to eat. He hasn't cried because of hiccups or because of being wet. We are being spoiled :) Here is the picture we choose for his birth announcement.

Tyler James

Was born at 4:37 am this morning by c-section. He was facing the wrong way and we had to have a c-section after laboring for 24 hours. He weighs 8 lbs 12 oz and is 21 inches long. Both Tyler and I are doing well, except for being sore.

I went to the doctor yesterday and we set up the following. Tonight I have to go in to the hospital at 6 pm to receive Cytotec. This is a pill that is supposed to be less invasive than Pitocin and should hopefully induce labor. I have to stay at the hospital for 4 hours; if everything is fine and labor hasn’t started I can go home and return to work on Wednesday. Then my actual inducement date and time will be Thursday morning at 8 am. So my last day of work will be Wednesday. Almost there!

I have the best husband ever. I have been feeling so blah lately, waiting on the baby to come. I came back to work after a lunch meeting and found this waiting for me.

I have a feeling that little Tyler is going to stay in my tummy forever, or at least until they induce me. I have my next appointment on the 16th at that time they will set the date to induce, which will be sometime before the 20th of February. I am pretty miserable and keep hoping for some timeable contractions or at least some sign of labor to begin. I am having trouble with my swelling and being able to wear shoes has become difficult. On another more pleasant note, I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. I treated myself to a pedicure after work, which felt amazing. John and I stayed in for dinner and had mac and cheese, one of my favorites. We went out on Monday night for the actual birthday celebration with his family since his dad and I share the same birthday and his mom's is two days later. I am hoping my next post will bring pictures of the little one, I guess all we can do is wait and see...

Well even after having my membranes stripped, twice now, little Tyler is being obstinate. I went today and had the best massage ever, whether or not hitting the pressure points help, it sure did feel good. John and I are ready as is the nursery and all of our family. Today is the technical due date, so we will see I guess. My doctor said he would let me go until the 17th of February before he would induce. My appointment yesterday was rough, I had high blood pressure and swelling so I had to go to the hospital to have blood drawn. I haven't heard anything back yet from them. I have to go again on Thursday because the doctor was slightly worried. I guess we will see what happens.
