Cruz Andrew arrived August 20th weighing in at 7lbs 6ozs and 20 1/2 inches long. He didn't make it to the scheduled induction time, he had his own plan. Which was fine with his mama. I actually received a phone call from the hospital the evening before I was supposed to go in and get induced informing me that they may not have a room available for me in the morning. I was like "WHAT!?!" Nothing like a little added stress! So I went to bed late that evening and had been sleeping for about 45 minutes when Bo woke me with a wet bed. As I was changing his sheets I had a little bit of a sharp pain...nothing new. Well, when I went back to bed, I had a few bad contractions and realized they were for real. I waited it out at home for about 3 hours then decided we needed to head to the hospital to be closer to my much loved epidural. Cruz made his debut at 12:25. This experienced mama pushed him out in about 10 minutes versus the 2 plus hours it took to push Bo out :)
We've been doing great this past week and are glad we have another healthy, handsome boy at home!
