    Hiii, so I had a baby!

    Advertisements


    I haven't been online as much since Mister Lane decided to come 3 weeks early. BUT we've been really good and honestly his timing was just perfect. We've been able to spend this whole week at home with big sister and little man before she starts school and it's been awesome having that family bonding. DH has been AMAZING and (in my biased opinion ) he is seriously the best dad and husband ever.

    So birth story, I went to my 36 week check with my OB on Tuesday and my blood pressure was sky high. It was almost high enough to warrant her delivering him that day but she sent me to the hospital to try and get it down and hold him in until August 11th which would of been 37 weeks even. I went to labor and delivery and my BP had already dropped some once I arrived but I was admitted and that was that! Wednesday was boring and uneventful. Thursday rolled around and I started having a dull achy pain in my right upper side. It gradually started getting worse throughout the day and by about 4:30 PM I wasn't really able to manage the pain anymore. They paged my OB immediately after I got sick and started throwing up and she made the call that most likely I had ventured right into another nasty PreE symptom. I had to get an ultrasound on my liver and they said they saw a blood clot so the only way to make me better was delivery. DH suited up in his scrubs and next thing I know I was being wheeled to the OR for Lane to come out! The spinal sucked but once that kicked in, it was basically smooth sailing. He was out at 6:51 PM August 10th weighing in at 5 LBS 13 OZ (same birth weight as sissy) and he was 19 1/2 inches long and he was PERFECT Recovery hasn't been bad, with DH's support, we've both been doing really really well. My incision is healing really well and Lane is doing great, he's maintaining weight and eating well! I'm also super excited to say I've been able to exclusively breastfeed him. With Paityn my milk never came in and I was so stressed and exhausted doing it all on my own I just didn't get that opportunity to nurse her like I wanted to. Of course she's happy and healthy and is starting 2nd grade tomorrow but being able to nurse this time has been really awesome

    Anyways, enough talk, here are some pictures

    Sister is in love.








    The fur kids love him too

    The nurses said she was the most excited sibling they've seen when she came to the hospital. My heart is so full she is the best big sister.
