Austin Eli's Birth Story
Wed, 12-03-2008 - 11:36am

Wednesday morning at 3:30 am I woke up to a small gush of fluid and thought maybe my water had broken or maybe I just went to the bathroom, I really didn't know.

Mommy to Jackson 9/12/06, Austin 11/26/08, and my beautiful angel Andy 12/29/2007

Congratulations!! I'm not sure if I responded to your other posts or not, but I definitely read them and I am so happy for you! I hope Austin is ready to come home really soon. When I had Phoenix, he was 34.5 weeks, had a perfect Apgar score, no problems, but ended up staying in the hospital for 8 days as well. So maybe it was a bit premature to send Austin home so soon, I dunno.

Congratulations Jennifer. So sorry I am late.

I already responded to your other post, but I am so happy he is safe in your arms. Now we just got to get that bilirubin down and then you can really start to fully enjoy him without so much worry.

Congrats again.
