Ryan was born Friday November 13, 2009, 3 days late, at 12:44 am! Weight: 6lbs 13.2oz Length: 19.5in. Nobody thought I'd make it that long seeing where I was @ 36wks.
Thursday the 12th was the one day I was not allowed to have him. :o) 2 outta 4 people that Phill works with were on vacation that week and Brandon, the other one not on vacation, said that was the one night he wouldn't be able to do all the pages by himself. Well needless to say contractions started around 10am but were not regular. They continued all day being anywhere from 6-10 min apart.
My visiting teachers brought dinner that night and by then the contractions were between 6-8 min apart and getting stronger. I knew I was going to be going into full on labor before the night was through. When Phill went back to work after dinner I went and picked up my mom so she could stay the night. When we got home contractions were a consistant 6 min apart. Phill had said at dinner he'd prob be able to get outta wk around 10:30pm, so I waited till than to call the midwife to tell her I was heading into the hospital.
I got to the hospital @ a quater to 11pm. I was checked when I got there and was between a 6 &7 and 80%. Disappointing! That is where I was @ my appt. on tues morning. Those darn contractions hadn't done a thing! Claudia, the midwife, got to the hospital right after they checked me and offered to break my water. Phill was still at work so I said I'd wait until he got there. He ended up not being able to get off @ 10:30 and so he didn't get to the hospital until 11:15pm.
Claudia checked back with us at 11:40. We got all ready for her to break my water. I was having a contraction so she waited until that one was done.
She said, "that seemed like an intense one. Do you want me to check and see if you are progressing on your own, before I break your water?" I did and she checked. I was at an 8 & 90%. We decided that since I was going pretty fast on my own we'd forget about breaking my water just yet and I got into the tub.
I'm not sure how long I was in the tub for. I was shaking so bad when I got out that Claudia said I was gonna shake the baby right out of me! :o) I wasn't shaking because I was cold I was just shaking. She had checked me once right before I got outta the tub and I was at a 9. She said that since it was my second child I could start pushing whenever I felt like I needed to. That is why I got out of the tub. After getting back into the bed Claudia broke my water and I started pushing.
Unlike with Kendrick I had little breaks in between contractions so I could actually breathe. :o) He came quick and was here within a few pushes. He came out breathing which was also nice after K not breathing when he was first born. Phill also got to cut the cord which I think he was excited about since he didn't get to cut K's cord.
Getting him here seemed to hurt a lot more than getting Kendrick here. The recovery also seems to be going slower for me ... maybe it has something to do with the fact that I have a 2yr old and can't just rest all the time. :o)
I now have 2 beautiful boys that I love more than life! I am excited to see them grow and already love watching the changes that both are making.
Kendrick loves his little brother and is always wanting to hold and kiss him. Life has been an adjustment but we are loving almost every minute of it. :o)
Funny thing Kendrick said one night while I was feeding Ryan ... He was wanting me to hold him and crying he said, "Mommy! Ryan bed! No eat your boobie!"
Here's some pics:

I measured 33cm @ my 32wk check. Everybody is telling me that I'm so small! Well that tells you that I'm not! Ha! I'm right on track... :o) For those of you who don't know you are supposed to measure within 1cm either way of how many wks you are.
I have been such a bad mom with this preg! I've taken maybe 3 pix of my belly the entire pregnancy! What a slacker I am!
Just so I have something about this preg here's some fun facts... or not so fun facts.
I was super nauseous with this one. I became the monster I hear pregnant women are! Thanks Phill for loving me anyway! Emotional as all getout! I'd start bawling for no reason and Kendrick would see me so he'd start bawling and Phill just loved us and tried to help. :o) Heartburn! OH MY HECK!!!! Heartburn worse than the fires of Hell!!! Back and hip pain. Trip to the hospital @ 30wks.... It was a bladder infection.... so no worries. Ryan is kicking down all the time! Kendrick give Ryan zerbits, kisses and hugs all through mommy's tummy. It is soo cute! I haven't spilled on nearly as many shirts as I did with Kendrick! Yeah me!

Mine will look similar to the one with orange pockets but not the same. :o) It has to be unique you know! I was soo excited about this class that I was inviting everyone whos number I had in my phone that I thought would like the bag! I ended up getting my mom and 2 of my SsIL to sign up to do it with me! I'm pretty excited about it! They had such a big response to this bag that they had to open another class! My class is June 10th! YAY! I'll post my pix when I get it done!
I'll have to post pix of k later since I didn't bring my camera to upload them... Sorry... I know that's all most of you care about anyway. ;o)

Leslie didn't want me to go alone, both because she didn't want me to push my limits and also thought that quality time together without Kendrick would be great. We used Chase's and Vince's skis, boots and poles. We went for 1/2 a day and had so much fun. Both of us felt like we never left the slopes.
The only down-side to not going skiing for that long of time is .... the sore sore muscles. Both of us couldn't walk for the next 2 days.
Today is everyone's lucky day, we have some pictures and hopefully we will have the house pictures next time.
