Well guess who decided he didn't want to wait until his scheduled delivery appointment date and time? Yep, baby Chase is here and I am doing wonderfully.

Short version:
I woke up with different contractions on Thursday morning and figured that since I had a dr. Appointment that afternoon, I could wait until then and mention the change in braxton-hicks and the added back pain. I have to admit that I had a sneaky suspicion that it was labor, but I kept telling myself he was two weeks early.

I go to the appointment and doc says, "I think you're in labor", does a cervix check (OW!) and concludes that I was at 3cm. She sends me on my way to the hospital and baby Chase was delivered via c-section at 8:30 that night.

Oh, and he weighed 9lbs 1oz and was 21 inches long.


  1. Congratulations! Wonderful news! Glad to hear both you and Chase are doing okay.

  2. SO SO happy for you! Congratulations!!! I love his name--- so glad you went with it:) And wow - he is a BIG boy!
