I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted on here! So lets play catch up. :)
Ben decided to go overdue. 4 days :P He decided to come on the day my dads flight was booked. So unfortunately my dad never got to meet him face to face. The labour went fairly well. I went in because I got sick twice within 10 minutes and I just couldn't lay down. My contractions were at 7 minutes apart when I went in and I was 2cm. They gave me some gravol along with morphine because I was so nauseous. I slept from 11pm-about 5am. The nurse checked me at 5 and I was about 4-5cms. My doctor came in at 9am and checked me and I was 5cm. My water was still in tact so they broke it. At 11 something they checked me again and I was 9.5cms.. The nurse asked me to try and go pee to empty my bladder so I tried. Leaving the room she said "I'm going to call your doctor now. at least you don't have the urge to push".. wrong lol. I stood up and instantly had to push. I screamed for Adam to get the nurse now. so he did. They came in running (4 of them) and 4 pushes later Benjamin was here. One push I had to stop cuz part of the cord came out.. Ben didnt even wait for my doctor to arrive lol. He wasn't breathing when he came out apparently. They had to manually give him oxygen. :( and a shot to counteract the fentynol they had given me. then he was good.
He had some bilirubin level issues as well which had him under the lights for 24 hours. That was the longest 24 hours of my life. Not being able to snuggle him.. It sucked.
So Benjamin Owen Matchett was born on Sept 27th 2011 at 11:37am. He was 8lbs 9oz and 22.5inches. He is SUCH a mama's boy, and is now almost TWO months old and 14lbs!!! He sure is growing.
Summer is LOVING being a big sister. And she too, is growing a lot. Starting to talk, and can hum along (tune wise) to songs on tv and toys. Hard to believe almost two months have passed! Its been so hectic but amazing all at once. <3 On Tuesday we go to get our family photos done, I'm really excited :) Summer and Ben have CUTE outfits. Now I just need to find something that fits me haha
