Joseph Edward joined us on my birthday, October 13th, at 10:16 pm. Our other children are in love!

 

He weighed 8 lbs, 1 oz

 

Towards the end of my pregnancy, I was dealing with severe polyhydramnios. Labor was fine until my water broke, then poor little guy's heartrate couldn't keep up. After lots of quick position changes, oxygen, etc, I was rushed back for an emergency c-section (my first after four vaginal births) Disappointing to say the least, but we are so grateful we were in a large hospital that could deal with complications quickly.

 

We are so excited to see Joseph grow and change!


SAHM to Abraham (9) Gillian (5) Adrienne (3) and baby boy coming in October! 

Always missing our Gianna, lost during fullterm labor (8/23/04)
Sticking together through the good and the bad with dh of 10 yrs!
