As you all know I've been in the hospital since last friday being monitored 24/7Well the night of the 4th the baby was being hooked up for the stress test. Everything was fine, but the nurse said there were 2 dips in his heart rate and she didnt like that. So the resident dr came in for a BPT ultrasound. She seemed pleased with the babys activeness and heart.

Feeling relieved when she said all looked well within 10mins later she comes in and says Dr wants to go ahead and deliver you now. OMG..... was the looks me and DH gave each other. We were SO unperpared...

funny thing is DH family just left hospital at 11:30pm.But DH niece was there who's only 10 yrs old eating pizza with us. cause DH was going home after visit and was going to take her home then.

So at 1am on the 5th we're making frantic phone calls telling everyone "Its Time" ... they did NOT believe him at all! Cause they just left!! lol

I have to say... I now know what love at first sight is! Brayden is the love of my life!

He's small weighing 4 lb 7 oz and 17 inches long.... but he's stolen our hearts! I've been SOOOO blessed! Im so happy he hasnt had to go to the NICU at all!

Thankful of Gods blessings!

************************************************** ********

Ok.. who's next?

ps.... can someone tell me how to load a picture?

After trying for over 10yrs our bundle of joy was born on 8/5/10 4lbs 7oz ~Brayden Kelley Ray~Such a miracle~Stole our Hearts~ Gods timing isnt our timing, but His timing is perfect~~

I'm so happy for you and us! Way to get the ball the rolling for the September DDC!

As far as uploading a pic. Two options:
a) If you won't have very many pics you can create an album at your MDC user CP. It has very limited space.
b) Upload your photos to photobucket and follow the instructions there to paste the pictures here. Even I can do this and I'm so un-techy.

ed-just saw that ROM gave the photobucket idea already.
