Baby Gideon arrived 6/25
I haven't been on in a while, but I just wanted to update that Baby Gideon arrived 3 weeks early! My water broke early last Monday morning and he was born Wednesday 6/25 at 5:19am. We had been planning a home birth, but we could never get contractions to stick around in a good pattern so after 48 of ruptured membranes we transferred for pitocin. It didn't take much, a very low dose just to give me a nudge. Im a bit bummed about the transfer, but it couldn't have gone any better. My midwife still oversaw the entire delivery and dh caught the baby . We are all home now, nursing is going great, and his siblings are all in love!
He was 7 pounds 5 ounces (down to 6.14 now-but gaining well) and 20.5 inches long. pretty big for a 37 week baby! but the tiniest I've ever had! My other 3 were all in the high 8 pound range.
