Landon Frederick was born on Wednesday, March 28th at 9:09 am. He was 7 lbs even and 19 1/2 inches long.


After having contractions for several weeks along with pain along my scar from my previous c-section I was getting pretty exhausted. This past weekend was pretty painful as I had contractions all day and night every day and they were always followed by incision pain. At my doctor's appointment on Tuesday it showed that I was having contractions every 2-3 minutes and off I was sent to the hospital for observation and to try to stop the contractions. Despite being given 3 bags of fluid and a shot I was still contracting.

Thank you, ladies! I'm so glad my doctor listened to me and the signs my body was giving us. A rupture could have been deadly for both of us. I'm so incredibly thankful that he is here and healthy.

Oh my gosh Rian - I saw your post and had to do a double take because I knew we were due around the same time! I'm so happy that your doctor was so proactive with you and that he took Landon when he did - I can't imagine how scary a ruptured uterus would have been! He's absolutely perfect - congrats!!!!!

Awe..... he is so adorable. I am glad they took him when they did because I doubt rupturing your uterus is a good thing. Congrats mama.
