On November 15, 2012, Brady and I welcomed our sweet baby boy, Liam August Lucero, into the world. We have been so happily overwhelmed with being new parents that I have completely neglected my blog.
|The night I went into labor. I was about ready to pop!|
I had a not so fun labor. But I suppose it could have been a lot worse, so no complaints here! Contractions started just before bed, 11:30PM, on Wednesday the 14th. It was 2 days before my due date/scheduled induction of 11/16.
I had major back labor because he was a Sunny Side up baby. We timed contractions religiously as I screamed and paced back and forth just waiting for them to get close enough together to finally leave the house.
The minute we arrived at the Hospital, 5:30 AM, I demanded an Epidural.
|Feeling fine after getting the Epidural|
|So excited to meet our son!|
|Excited and nervous!|
|"He didn't miss any meals!", the Delivery Doc.|
|Wowie, that was a lot of work!!! So worth it.|
Not ten minutes later, a new Doctor came in and told me they were going to take our baby to the NICU because I had a fever of 102 towards the end of my labor. They had to put him on antibiotics, run blood tests and keep him under observation for 48 hours to make sure he hadn't gotten sick with anything. This seemed completely over dramatic to us because my fever went back to normal immediately after delivering. However, it is better to be safe than sorry so we were fine with it. Our Doctor told us not to worry as it was their job to be overly cautious.

Liam turned two months old today. Where did the time go? I snuggled him extra hard as he fell back asleep after his 5 AM feeding. Is it crazy to say he's growing up too fast already? :)
