Well, I'm really proud to announce the birth of my first child, jackson! He surprised us by arriving 2 weeks early!!! As some of you have seen, we had a scare on Friday and went to the hospital. It ended up being nothing but the next day, my water broke (2 am). I was pretty calm. I had a few contractions during the night and then went for a long walk in central park with my husband (who by the way thinks I'm insane and should be rushed to the hospital, let alone walking 1.5mi in the park). I did call my dr as soon as my water broke and she suggested we wait till i had some serious contractions. I was just following her advice and was trying to promote those contractions. What i didn't know is that I couldn't feel my contractions (I guess I am one of the very lucky few who don't have that pain sensitivity when it comes to contractions). By the time we arrived to the hospital I was over 5 cm dilated. 4 hrs later we had a healthy, beautiful baby boy. My husband, who is afraid of blood was watching the whole thing and even cut the umbilical cord!!!! I was so proud of him... of course he cried for a long time afterwards... i could hear him sobbing on the phone as he was calling our friends and family to tell them about our new addition.... So there we are.... having a little one as part of our family and joining sleepless club!!!
Thank you all for wonderful wishes and notes while I was in labor.... Means so much to me and I feel so lucky!!!
