AJ's Birth Story
Tue, 10-07-2008 - 1:08pm

We checked in at noon ish. They (without knowing) put us in the room next door to our friend that was in labor. Dh and I got all set up and the nurse came in. She told me they were really busy and since they could control MY labor we were going to "take it slow". Okay. Oh and she was pregnant- due the day before me- joked she needed some hypertension and gestational diabetes! lol

YAY JAMIE! YAY AJ! Your little man is adorable- give him lots of hugs and kisses from us ladies on the PASB board! I can't believe he is here, I know you have been waiting forever, it just feels like you were 28 weeks yesterday! I'm so glad to hear your labor went so smoothly- the miscommunication between docs and nurses is one of those things I just do not get, and it seems soooo common. Thank goodness you told her your water was broken lol. Again, congratulations on the arrival of your beautiful boy, I cannot tell you how happy I am for you :D

Lots of love and HUGS!
