Party of Five.

So it's been a week already since my induction and we now have another sweet baby boy.

We arrived at the hospital ready to have a baby. It felt a little weird having an appointment to have a baby. We checked in and got admitted and around 7:30pm or so the nurses started the pitocin IV. I was already 4 cm and 70% effaced when we got to the hospital. The pitocin took forever to kick in. I really wasn't in any pain at all. Even once the contractions started coming it was like nothing compared to my labor with Easton. Finally the nurse said instead of prolonging the labor they would get the epidural started then break my water, so that's what they did. Once they broke my water the little guy was born about 3 hours later. This was the easiest labor and delivery for me out of the three. I only had to push for 10 minutes and through 3 contractions, so much easier than the previous two:))

On our way to the hospital.

Ready to have a baby:))

Taking a little stroll around the L&D floor. My butt and back were killing me from laying in bed.

Our sweet new baby boy.

We were expecting to be able to leave the hospital and go home on Friday but when they weighed him at midnight {they weigh all babies at midnight} he had lost 12% of his birth weight so we had to stay an extra day so they could watch him and make sure everything was good, which it was. His discharge weight was 8 lbs. 12 oz and his weight at his appointment Monday was 8 lbs. 14 oz. They are not sure why his weight went down so much and they said that it doesn't happen very often. He is good and healthy. So we were able to leave the hospital on Saturday....My birthday! My nurse brought me a little cupcake and piece of chocolate brownie cake, we took them home and had later that night for dessert.

Later that day these crazy kids came to visit.

 At the end of the visit Cameron finally said he wanted to hold him:)

The End is in Sight.

Well today has come and gone and still no baby. Today I had my 40 week appointment and my doctor has scheduled me for an induction tomorrow around 5 pm. I am kinda nervous about being induced because I have heard it can sometimes awhile, fingers crossed since this is baby #3 it will move along smoothly :)

I am very anxious to see this little guy and see how big he is. My doctor said he doesn't feel like a 9 pounder but I hide it well so she wouldn't be surprised if he was. Next time I post I will have some sweet baby pictures to share with you.

The boys content at the end of the year baseball shindig we attended tonight......this lasted about 10 minutes:) I cannot believe we are about to add another one in the mix.

39 Weeks.

Well I am finally on my last week!!!

I am counting down the days now. At my last appointment, which was last Tuesday, I was 2.5 cm dilated and 50% effaced...which really means nothing to me since I was 4 cm with Easton for 3 freaking weeks. This week has been kinda rough. Lots and lots of cramping and pains, weird feelings I never felt with the first two. And then today I felt sick, like nauseous sick.

My next appointment is Tuesday, which is my due date, and my doctor said she would not let me go a week over due since I grow quite large babies. So if I happen to make it to that appointment I am hoping to convince her to schedule the induction Wednesday....or maybe even Tuesday night:))  But I really hope I don't make it to that appointment. At this point I am so done being pregnant. I don't mind being pregnant but the 9th month is tough, especially when you have 2 active crazy kids. It makes doing things so much harder and sometimes I think they know they can get away with certain things because I am pregnant.

Keep your fingers crossed this little guy decides to make an appearance this weekend:)

It's hard to believe that the High School baseball season is already coming to an end. There are only 3 games left and playoffs start. Then right after the HS season ends American Legion {summer baseball} starts up.
The boys run wild at every single game. They are just crazy. Cameron doesn't listen and then Easton copies everything Cameron does. It doesn't help that I am 9 months pregnant chasing after 2 crazy kids for 4 hours. One good thing that helps a little is Easton always almost falls asleep on the way to the games and will sleep for about an hour, so I take that time sitting on my butt resting up. 
I always tell myself if they don't listen I will not take them but they have so much fun and it gives them something to do, plus I would feel so guilty if we didn't go. Although tomorrows game we are skipping. We went to the other 2 games this week, plus this week has been very busy. We have been going going everyday this week. So tomorrow we are going to lay low and let Dad go to the game solo.

 They found a huge pile of dirt at this game.

 And were using it as a slide. It's a good thing I always bring a change of clothes.
