We have a baby boy!
April 3rd 12:04 pm
6lbs 11oz 19 3/4 inches long
I love this proud look on Katie's face!
She got to meet him first. And she calls him baby brother.
She bought him an alligator from Golightly's. She's had that picked out for months!
I have been in the hospital since Monday the 31st, because my blood pressure got too high. It was heartbreaking to be away from Katie. She came to visit everyday.
They decided since my blood pressure wouldn't go down, they should deliver the baby. I got steroid shots for 2 days before he was born, to help his lungs. Thankfully he was perfect and healthy born at 37 weeks.
I had a c-section and then the doctor put me on magnesium to help prevent a stroke or seizure due to high blood pressure. I heard it was going to be a little bit of a nightmare and it was! I felt horrible. He was worth it though.
Marcus stayed at the hospital with me all week!
My mom stayed at our house with Katie and other family helped with her too.
I'm so grateful for our family.
I didn't get to come home until last night, because my blood pressure was still high! I was really disappointed. So now I am on medicine for the next 6 to 8 weeks and trying to take it easy. Have any of you had this issue after delivery? I just want to know what to expect.
I am taking one for the team by showing this picture.
I am so swollen and full of fluids and not very cute, but the other 3 are adorable!
I plan on sharing a million more pictures and details soon.
I just needed to announce that I have a son!
