Oops, we did it again… oh boy, it’s a boy

I was only been in touch with the world via  instagram last week, and I am excited to be home and back to almost normal… I love a schedule and knowing what I am doing in advance. I color code important events in a calendar, and my scheduled c-section was one thing I clearly marked. But this little Lemondrop apparently did not get the calendar memo and came early. Really early, both by date and time. When you get up at 1:00 am for a drink of water that’s really all the excitement you want. Baby Bennett decided to add some more. Mr. Lemondrop had fallen asleep watching television, but you’d be amazed at the vertical jump I saw when I said my water had just broken. Impressive. And at 4:38 a.m.  I was thrilled to hold this little blessing (which is what his name means).  The first little Lemondrop came in the middle of the night, so I guess I should have expected that!

I am sad to have my pregnancy end early, I believe in making the most of that time for the baby and enjoying it, but I am so grateful for the fabulous doctors and nurses who we were lucky enough to meet. We didn’t know the sex of the baby, so we are excited to announce…It’s a boy!

I am super proud of this stockpile…The only thing I have accomplished besides a record load of laundry and diaper changes… and if you’ve tried to do this you know how hard it can be.

    Oh congratulations! I am waiting for my second little boy to arrive and feeling very broody whilst also a little freaked out as I try to remember what those sleepless nights and endless nappy changes were like! Your little blessing was clearly feeling impatient – he is adorable!

      Hi Lucy, for me there were no questions from the dr on call, who was not my regular dr. He saw that my ob had scheduled it, and rather than quibble he did one (perhaps he wanted to go back to bed, but I think he was following my dr’s lead) Bummer if you have to experience labor + csection if you ask me, I’ve done it twice now). I was fine with the csection since I have experience with it and baby’s arrival and health is top priority for me! But if I were you I’d ask my ob, it may be that if you look ready to go for a v. delivery they will encourage you to try.
