    Default 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.

    I'm sorry you had to transport (btdt ), but it sounds like it really went well in the hospital despite the change of plans.

    I'm so glad you updated and I loooove his name (our 4th is Gideon also ).
