One week ago today labor started.
I knew it would take a long time. I’m a runner. I know my body better than any doctor ever will. When I checked in to the hospital the night of the 8th the doctors told me that I may have a baby by the end of the week. I knew otherwise.
21 hours after the first start of contractions Colton River Beal was born 11 days before his due date.
At 10:06 am on the 9th of November my littlest man entered this world! He weighed 7lbs 14 oz.
He was a full pound larger than his sister was at birth, but still not as large as his big brother who had weighed in at a whopping 8 pounds .18 ounces.[yes I said 8.18 – my favorite number combination!!]
I love him so very much. I am amazed again how my mind has already forgotten how much I disliked being pregnant.
|I’m so pleased that this little guy is mine!|
