We have had quite the adventurous last ten months. We found out we were expecting on April 5, 2009 and could not have been more surprised. By the sixth pregnancy test, we were convinced though! This was the beginning of the rest of our lives.
A walk through the 9 months
14 weeks pregnant:
25 weeks (for me, 14 weeks for my sister!):
38 weeks pregnant (Thanksgiving)
We weren't quite as good about taking pictures at the end as we were at the beginning! Trust me, my belly only got much, much bigger and my face much more swollen.
I had a pretty easy pregnancy. Unfortunately, it lasted about two weeks longer than I would have liked. My due date was Friday, December 11. Barrett decided he was quite comfortable inside my belly and intended to stay there indefinitely. It took 12 extra days, 12 hours of cervadil, 15 hours of pitocin, and a c-section to finally get this kiddo out into the real world. We're hoping this means he's a laidback child and not that he's a procrastinator or a stubborn one. I couldn't imagine where he'd get either trait! Certainly not from either of his parents! But after much anticipation, he finally made his appearance at 12:11am on Wednesday, December 23, 2009. Hooray!
