He Finally Arrived!

 Our big boy!
9 lbs, 22 inches

Our big baby boy finally made his appearance on Monday!  This is the first time that I have ever made it to my due date! I was hoping to have a natural birth since I had pitocin for induction with my last two and I didn't want to have to go through that again.  (We almost didn't make it to the hospital with Sweetie so I was induced to make sure we did with the next two!) I had a dr appointment on the Thursday before my due date and my doctor thought I would go in labor soon (actually she thought that for about 2 weeks!), so I did not want to schedule anything yet but she said I could call her if I changed my mind.  By Saturday afternoon, I was getting more and more nervous that this baby was going to decide to come super fast once it started so I called to see if we could still schedule something.  She said Sunday night was open so that is when we headed in.  I was already dilated to 4 when we got there, so we just decided to break my water and wait with the pitocin.  And it worked out great!  I was able to have a natural birth and our big baby boy arrived 2 1/2 hours later!  I even had a really great nurse who trained at a hospital where natural births were very popular and she didn't require me to stay in bed and be hooked up to all the monitors.
