If you are just tuning in, part one of The Wee Two’s birth story can be found HERE. Where we last left off I was a whopping 8 cm dilated and feeling good about my progress.  My OB decided it was time to rupture my waters.  It seems my babies like to take their sweet time descending and breaking my waters usually speeds up the process. Remember at the end of my last post when I said I was at an 8 but not for long?  Unfortunately, after my OB broke my waters, I went backwards to 6 cm dilated. Read more […]

The Wee Two arrived Thursday March 3rd at 10:48 AM. He was 9 lbs even and 21 inches long at birth!  He was born at 39 weeks and 4 days.  Labor was shorter this time at 12 hours from start to finish with only 10 minutes of pushing!  That part was awesome.  There is more to the story of course so I will be writing a birth story when I have time but for now I just wanted to stop in and show you our newest little guy. The Wee One was a bit skeptical at the hospital but since we’ve brought Read more […]
