Omgosh it's been Crazy!!! To say the least lol.
My sisters fiancé called around 9:45 Friday night and said "Danielle's water broke, what do I do?". LOL I said "well you call her doctor and head to the hospital". So my sister wanted to wait at home as long as possible. She wanted a natural birth, no meds and it be perfect. We managed to make it to her house around 10:10 and she had just started having close contractions. Off to the hospital we go. She starts contracting harder and faster and was at 3cm when we got there. About 20 min passed and bless her heart, she couldn't handle it anymore so she asked for the epidural. We had to wait 30min after she received it to get to see her. I forgot my charger in her room so when they started letting 2 go back at a time to see her I was just going to run in get my charger and run out. I get to her door and I hear "she's ready to push". What??!!???!!! Just 30 min after the epidural she went from 3 to 10. Wowza!! So we all go out, then about 15 min later her fiancé comes out, we can go back and see her. They had to turn her epidural off because she couldn't feel to push at the time. So an hour goes by and they're going to try again. Within 3 pushes he was here!!! He weighed 5lbs and 13 oz. He was 18 1/2 inches long. He was born at 3:09am. He's amazing!!!! She's doing great, he's even better. They kept them 48 hours and finally got to come home yesterday. :D My poor sister has never even held a baby, she never wanted to. So now it's a whole new world for her. I know she'll find her groove soon enough though.
I wound up with a migraine the night she had him. I was going on 36 hours with no sleep. Got home around 7am and tried to sleep. I had her dog with me so her and sophie wanted to play. No sleep for Des. Lol. Dosed off for 2 hours and back up again. That morning we learned my brother had the flu. I sat 2 feet from him while we waited for Danielle to have Noah. :| Today is Tuesday and I'm still good. :D Last night my mom was going to stay with my sister to kinda help her since she's breastfeeding and everything. My mom had to come home last night, she was throwing up and had diarrhea. Thank God it was just a virus. Praying sweet Noah doesn't get it. She stayed away as best as she could once she realized it wasn't just diarrhea. Anyways, it's been crazy here lol. But I'm SO thankful Noah is here, he's healthy and amazing and my sister did a wonderful job. She's great and it couldn't be better than that. I'm SO in love with this sweet boy!!! It does make me want my own, even more so now, but I'm so amazed at the love I have for him. I don't want to put him down. :)
