Baby Update!

Baby Update!

Sorry for delay in updating, it’s been a crazy few days!   

I’m excited to say that baby R has arrived!

I went to my doctor’s appointment on Thursday, July 16th and was sent straight down to be induced. I’m planning to take some time later and write my full birth story, but I wanted to share the highlights now. πŸ™‚

R arrived at 4:04 am, 17 July 2015, after 15 hours of labor and 53 minutes of pushing. He weighed in at 7lbs 15 oz and 20 inches long. He’s perfection and despite being a couple weeks early, he didn’t need any assistance or extra care. His proud papas made it in time for delivery by just a few hours! What a miracle.

There was a small piece of placenta that was being stubborn in my uterus so it took the doctor a good bit of digging and scooping to get it out. Oh my! I spiked a fever and had really bad chills after delivery. They finally got the chills under control and put me on antibiotics for the fever and possible infection. I’ve had to stay in the hospital to monitor everything, but I hope to be able to go home Sunday!!!

The papas are over the moon and already in love with their precious baby boy. Seeing them together has given me the greatest joy.

Look for R’s birth story soon with more pictures of the big event (with the parents’ permission, of course)! 

Thank you to every single person who’s followed along with my journey, offered support, love and/or encouragement. I’m so thankful to have “met” some remarkable people along the way and look forward to, hopefully, following along with you still. πŸ™‚

Love, Liz ❀

    • Thank you. Im feeling much better. They get released from hospital tomorrow also. They’ll be here in Alabama until the second week of August so everything can be finalized with birth certificate and passport.

  2. Yay!!! How wonderful! He is absolutely precious and I am tearing up just thinking about how happy his daddys must be right now. So thankful that they were able to make it as it seems baby R was very anxious to meet everyone! πŸ™‚ Rest well and take care of yourself, you have earned it! ☺️

  3. Oh congratulations to everyone!!!
    I am so thrilled for you and your IF’s. Baby R is such a handsome little pudding!
    You have done such a special and amazing thing and I am so pleased to have followed your journey. You look so pleased and proud- as you should be. Well done xo

    • Thank you so very much! I still can’t believe he’s finally here. I appreciate all of the love and support you’ve shown along the way. You rock!

      This journey was far more meaningful that I could have even hoped for.
