I am so thankful for my sweet co-workers and friends that prayed with me and loved on me as I had a mild freak out moment! =) I ended up calling Nate and asking him to come and get me at work and take me to the hospital. I called Tiffany (my amazing sister) and asked her to come to the Y and get Carson and Dalton. It all worked out. Everyone was taken care of and I was put in a hospital gown and on a baby monitor.
We quickly learned that baby Easton and I were fine. Contractions were controllable. Blood pressure was good. My water hadn't broken. I was 100% certain we were going home and I was going to apologize to everyone for inconveniencing them. WRONG. I was admitted to a room and told I would be delivering my baby boy at 5:30 that evening. WHAT?!?!?!
I thought the doctor was kidding and gave him several opportunities to take it back and send me home. Yeah, he wasn't kidding. I had an exam and he was very concerned about the uterine window and my obvious tenderness/soreness with bleeding. So, up to the sixth floor I went...up to the sixth floor to prep for a c-section two weeks before the scheduled date.
The boys and I had a calendar that counted down to Easton's birthday.
Do you know what this meant?! I had things I needed to get done before October 14th...his scheduled due date. I had PLANS!!!! Ugh. I was upset. I was in tears. This was not okay.
And then I snapped out of it. We were told about the uterine window at the twenty fourth week of pregnancy. For twelve weeks I had an ultrasound and doctor's visit every week. As I am being wheeled up to the sixth floor of the hospital I had an attitude adjustment. I went from the "woe is me" to extremely thankful that we had made it to thirty six weeks and six days. Easton and I were perfectly fine and everything was going to be okay.
September 30, 2014 - 5:52pm - Easton Thomas Moore was born.
7 lbs. and 21 1/2 inches long.
Oh my goodness!!! What a blessing!!! The c-section was great...Easton's blood sugar was awesome in spite of my gestational diabetes...the nurses and doctors were amazing! I am so thankful for this evidence of grace!
We are still in the hospital and planning to go home on Friday. The other boys are taken care of which I am thankful for. I am ready for our new normal with Easton. I am ready to be home with all of my boys and get back to our normal routine.
Thank you for the prayers!! I had so many emails and texts which was encouraging and comforting.
