It's a Boy


Directly after my last post, my sister came over and we headed over to my scheduled doctor's appointment for the follow-up about my blood work, high blood pressure, and urine test results. When we got there, my blood pressure was even higher than Thursday's check-in and there was definitively protein in my urine. At that point, she decided that I needed to head into Labor and Delivery to be checked out.

My sister and I called Mr. Howard and headed over to L&D (first, though, we stopped at In-n-out for a quick bite to eat - THANK GOODNESS). At labor and delivery they took my blood again (doing a lot of tests) and my urine. After a few hours, Mr. Howard and my mom arrived to be with my sister and I. Shortly thereafter, the on-call doctor announced that, if it was okay with me, she was recommending I induce labor (due to contractions, dilation, results, blood pressure, etc.).

They officially put me on Pitocin at 4:3opm and almost exactly 12 hours later, with the help of my mom and sister, we welcomed Connor James Howard into the world. He was born on 07-07-09, 7 lbs & 13 oz, 20 inches long at 4:35am. We are SOOOO overjoyed, blessed, and in love with our new little man. How could we have been a family for 9 years already without him? We just can't imagine our lives sans Connor!

Welcome to the world, Connor! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!
