Sweet Big Brother

We took Morgan to the doctor today and she is now 7lb 10oz and 22 inches long. The doctor finally said that I can stop pumping & just nurse! Thank the lord, I am so tired of pumping! I am very lucky that she will nurse because most preemies wont. She had to get 2 shots :(. She did really good. Cayleb had to come with me because he is out of school for Christmas break. He was so sweet, after they gave her, her shots he just sat next to her and held her hand. He just talked to her and rubbed her little head. He kept saying don't cry Morgan it will be ok. He is the BEST big brother. I love to see the two of them together.

Welcome to Our Family Morgan Michelle Hunter

Her club box

This is right after she was born

So I am sure most of you have heard that my sweet little girl decided that she wanted to come into this world a lot early! I was only 32 weeks...

This is a long story!

It all started Sunday night (18th) about 6:00 or so. I was having "cramps/ growing pains" in my lower belly. I thought I would got take a bath and lay down for a little bit to see if it would go away. I called a couple friends to see what they thought it could be. We live like 45 min to an hour away from the hospital so I hated to drive all the way up there. So I finally called the doctor about 8 or so and he said it might be growing pains but I should go ahead and come in. So, I waited because that is what I do. About 20 or 30 min and it just kept getting worse! Aaron finally said lets just go and see what they say. We loaded up and our friends met us to get Cayleb. It is now about 9:30 when we make it to the hospital.... I don't even want to know how fast Aaron was driving. You have to the ER that late and then they will take you up to labor and delivery. When I walked in the lady at the front desk asked what the problem was and I told her that I was pregnant and she said "are you in labor" I told her I didn't know... (The whole time this all going on I am just thinking to myself, I am going to feel so silly when they tell me I have bad gas or something.) They quickly get me into a wheel chair and up to labor and delivery.

And the fun begins here! They hook me up to the monitors and the nurse says yep your having contractions and WOW they are coming quick! So she calls the doctor and he says to give me a shot and wait and see if they stop. This shot makes you shake like crazy. And my contraction did stop for about 30 mins and then they started back, so they gave me one more shot. I was now at a 2-3. It did not work so they said that they were going to have to admit me and start me on magnesium. Its now 12-12:30 and she said it would take up to 2 hours for this to work. Well 2 hours came and went! And they didn't stop! I finely told Aaron that he had to get the nurse and they had give me something! The nurse came in and said she would call the doctor and ask him what he wanted to do, but then she look at the monitor and said she would be right back with something. She gave me a shot and she still said that my contraction should stop, but that my doctor was in the hospital and he was going to come and check on me. My nurse checked me and said that I was now a 4 but we will wait and see what the doctor says. Keep in mind they still wont give me an epidural because they are trying to stop my labor... Its now about 3:15 and the doctor comes in and he talks to me for a little bit and then he checks me and says well your a 9!! I looked at the nurse and said NOW can I have an epidural? She said she didn't think so but she would go ask. Guess what NO meds! My water breaks and I push for 20 min or so. And we have a baby at 4:22 am on Monday.

My sweet baby comes out crying. They work on her for a little bit and quickly rush her out of the room. Aaron goes with the baby while the finish working on me. She weighed 4 lb 2 0z and was 16.5 inch long. I got to go see her about an hour after I had her. She was in NICU for 2 days but they never gave her a feeding tube or anything. Then they moved her into an "cube" crib where she spend 4 days. She was on the lights for 2 days. Then she moved to an open crib and kept her temp. We got to bring her home 8 days after she was born.

I have had the worst back pain the past 3 days. I have not slept because every time I lay down the pain just shoots down my legs. If anyone has any helpful hints, please send them my way. I know that this is just part of being prego, but man its bad!

Good Friends and BAD football!

This weekend we went to Arlington to hang out with some good friends and watch some BAD football. We had a great time, to bad our Sooners didn't do so good! I guess you can win them all...

Here is a "belly" picture if you will. 27 weeks and counting! I go back to the Doctor on Wed. for a check up. I am sure it will be uneventful. I really want to know how she is laying. I don't want to be pushing on her head or something. I will try to get Aaron to take a picture of just my belly because my poor belly button is about to POP! Baby Morgan moves a LOT, some days I think she is going to jump right out.

Big Brother

Today was exciting, Cayleb finally got to feel Morgan move. Every time he would put his hand on my belly she would stop or he would be in bed or at school when she does her "work-outs". He was so cute he was worried that it hurt me when she did it. He said she does that in your belly and it doesn't hurt! I glad she is in your belly and not mine. You gotta love boys!

Back to school

Today was the first day of school. Today my baby went to 3rd grade. He has gotten so big, when I first met Aaron he was in Pre-K and just 4 years old. He is going to be 9 this year! Wow how time flies! When we pulled up to school he told me that he wanted me to just drop him off, he did not want me to walk him to class. :( Its so sad that he is growing up. He did give me a kiss and tell me he loved me so that made me feel better. But he had a get day and was so excited to tell me all about what they did in "3rd grade". He said, "3rd grade is so much better than 2nd, we get to do science".

So make sure you hold their hand and give them a kiss when their friends are around while they will let you.

M is for....

Morgan Michelle Hunter. Its great to have a name for our little girl. I am feeling good, tired but who's not... I am now 24 weeks, some days it feels like Morgan is doing some crazy work out in my belly. She is very very active! Cayleb is getting more excited now that he can see my belly and feel her move.
A very good friend of ours gave us an early shower gift, her bedding. Now I am just trying to pick out a crib. I don't know why its so hard for me to pick a crib she is just going to sleep in it. There is one thing that is not hard for me to pick out, its cute outfits. Everything is so stinking cute, every time we are a store Cayleb wants me to buy her something. He is going to be the best big brother. I guess the first day of school he told his teacher all about having a sister.
