He is here!

Sorry for not posting sooner but things have been a little hectic. Baby Will arrived safely on the 18th with only 4 hours of labor and 30 minutes of pushing......his mommy was so happy that things went so smoothly. We did have some dips in his heartrate which sent everyone into a tailspin but we got it back up and he made it here with nothing more than a cone head! He weighed a whopping 6 pounds even and was 19 and a half inches long - can someone please tell me where the other 54 pounds came from?? Just kidding - I am absolutely, totally head over heels in love with him......I can't imagine what I ever did without him!

I feel great and we were released from the hospital on Saturday - just in time for all the Christmas festivities. Thank you all for your prayers and your support. He is an absolute miracle and I can't believe that he is mine! I promise to update soon but for now the breastfeeding is keeping me pretty tied up. I know why they say you lose weight while breastfeeding - geez you have no time to eat yourself! I hope you all had a great Christmas and I have a ton of pictures to share!!

(((HUGS))) from Baby Will's mommy!

Let the countdown begin!

14 days and counting to be exact - yep, we are having a baby on the 18th of this month!! Oh my gosh!!! I am still sitting here in absolute disbelief at the thought of holding my little boy in 2 weeks. I can't even begin to describe what an amazing, incredible, frightening, difficult yet completely worth it journey that infertility and pregnancy has been. On top of the 60 pounds - yep I said 60 - that I've gained there is so much more. Amazing things have transpired in my life over the last 30 months - I've experienced some of the greatest sadness and joys of my life.......all wrapped up in 30 months. My hubby and I have become so much closer, more in love and truly best friends. I've learned to ask for help and to let other love me. I had no idea what kind of journey we would be on when we decided to start "trying". I can honestly say that I wouldn't trade one day of it for anything in the world. The truth is.......God does always know what is best for us.

According to Dr. H, Will is low and I'm about a fingertip dilated. Nothing to really write home about even though I've been having contractions for the last several days. My blood pressure is still good and other than the scale creeping up like crazy I have no complaints.

I finally got my new camera so I really need to get my butt in gear and get some pictures of the nursery - maybe I'll work on that this weekend. Oh I also need to pack my bags, have the car detailed and put together the various baby contraptions that we have. Oh and attend my 6th and final baby shower on Sunday - man this is going to be a busy 2 weeks!!

Thank you all so much for your support while I've been on this journey. I'm really going to need a kick in the butt to get back in shape once this baby is here so please stick around!
