3 years ago today, Hubby and I checked myself into the OB ward at the Jane Phillips Medical Center in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. It was appromimately 11:55 pm.
I drove us and yakked to best friend D and best friend L. on my cell phone while hubby slept on the way to the hospital in Bartlesville.
Yep, I drove myself to the hospital this time. It was a whole lot different than when Son #1 decided he wanted to come into this world.
Wee One was a ‘planned‘ delivery.
He was delivered about 3 and a 1/2 weeks early.
When my OB, after several bothersome and painful tests AND daily road trips all the way to Bartlesville for baby-stress-tests the entire last month of my pregnancy, was certain that Wee Ones lungs were fully developed, he decided Wee One needed to be taken ‘early‘.
No complaints from me.
I had complications with my health and was put on complete bed rest since early September…..you can imagine how I dealt with that, not well at all.
When I was preggers with son #1, I rode my horse until I was 6 months pregnant. I stopped riding at 6 months with son #1 because my babybelly did not fit behind the saddle horn comfortably anymore. But I was 10 years younger back then too!
On 11/10/03 Wee One came into this world.
Hubby and I were much more relaxed and confident this time around.
I can still see the smile on hubbys face when the doctor held up Wee One for his cord to be cut. Hubby did not do it, too squeemish. He chose to stand at my head and watch where it was ‘safe‘. He was grinning like a fool tho!
Whoever invented epidurals deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
This was the easiest delivery I ever had. Son #1 was all natural, I wont even go there…..at least not until 1/15/07 when I post about his birth.
Tomorrow were having a small birthday party with presents, a Sponge Bob cake, and sherbert (no dairy for Wee One darn it).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WEE ONE!!
