remember my BFF who had all those awful scary medical problems a month ago...crashing blood sugar and epileptic seizures, on a ventilator, etc? she had her baby last night!!!! which makes me a sort of auntie, lol.
little arvid jay was born sometime between the hours of 1am and 2am (not clear exactly when, only spoke with her husband briefly...i'm so honored that we were on the 11:30pm "we're at the hospital" call list AND the 2:10am "HE'S HERE!!!" call list too!), weighing in at 7lb9oz, even though my BFF was 37 weeks on the nose yesterday when her water broke. holy crap he would've been a big baby had he gone full term or overdue!!! she went in at around 9pm because her water had broken, but her contractions were still mild and far apart, so they were going to see how she progressed until they discovered somewhere in there that AJ was breech, so he was born via c-section after all. mom is doing great, although i just read on dad's facebook that they transferred AJ to the NICU here at the hospital where i'm supposed to deliver, 2 hours away. not sure what happened, but if it was serious he wouldn't be here, he'd be somewhere in wisconsin.
i can't wait to meet the little guy! i'm so so happy! of course, since he was born so quickly after only mild labor and 3 weeks early, this means i'll DEFINITELY go two weeks overdue and be in active labor for three days, lol.
