3-2-1----BLASTOFF!

This is Murray, I am scribing for Cicada who is.......dun dun dun.......starting the process of having a baby boy.....so HERE SHE IS!

We finally found what worked, Thursday was the only day this week that would have been inconvenient for the baby to come. Murray was starting up his Photoshop class for the new year, and having the baby today would mean canceling class, calling all the students to let them know individually, and risk looking like we were going to take their money and run. Not to mention the fact that I had favors to finish for my Mom and brother. But who would be so foolish to ask favors of a ticking time bomb anyway?

This morning we all came to the hospital for a non stress test, and I assumed that we would be in and out. BUT, the baby's heart rate wasn't responding well to even the tiniest of contractions. Before we knew it, I was in the labor and delivery room and hooked up to an IV. The Grandmothers are here. Murray, has made all the cancelations for his class, and now we are in for the long haul or the short haul depending on ow my body responds to this drip. Wish us luck!

Everyone is so concerned about the birthing gown!! Don't worry. It's packed. But I figured I'd wear it during recovery. I'll post pictures! I'm still on the drip still waiting for progress...

Best of luck to all three of you!

I had a nightgown that I wore when in labor. I bought a cheap but pretty and comfortable nightshirt and added snaps from neck to knees so it would be easy to get access to my stomach for monitors. The plan was that it would get trashed in labor. Somehow it managed to stay clean the whole time, and everyone was commenting on it. Then started bleeding a lot and that was that.

In short, your decision regarding the designer gown is probably a good one. I can't wait to see pictures of your little bundle of Loveland!
