He Finally Arrived!



After 275 days of being pregnant, I was blessed with a baby boy. Emerson entered into my world on Sunday, Oct 2nd at 9:47pm.

On Sunday, started as a normal day. Stan (our buyer) sent me a message on Facebook, asking ANYTHING YET? I answered, ugh nothing yet! And I explained that my midwife had told me to drink Raspberry tea, brewed from the leaves…and I told him I think I’ve drank my weight in this tea! And now I have to pee, every two seconds!!! LOL   Then my mom called me around 5pm to ask how everything was. I answered her kind of upset cause really nothing was happening.  As I was speaking to her on the phone, just chatting about the day I was sitting on my bed. Once I got off the phone, I decided to get up and go down stairs and it happened….MY WATER BROKE!

I made two calls, one to my midwife and one to my mom. My mom was at my house in seconds (she lives about 15mins from me). We got to the hospital to learn that Emerson was in a breach position. At that point, I knew I was going C-section. But he was worth it! I am soooo in love with my little boy!  He is such a good baby, and he loves to eat…A LOT!

I’m doing great…I’ve had a couple of set backs but for the most part I’m recovering well. I’m blessed with such a wonderful family and all my friends to help me around the house. I am bummed I missed out of Girlfriends Getaway, but I know Paulette will fill us all in soon!  But don’t worry I’m not going anywhere…after all HOTP is my home away from home!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!
