2 years ago today, I went in to labor, and today we had an ultrasound to check on baby number TWO! Time really does fly.
I remember this day, two years ago, like it was yesterday. We went to the hospital around 10AM, only to be sent home because I was barely dilated. We got Schlotzky’s for lunch, Brandon had me take a bath, and I got a chocolate snoball with condensed milk. 7 hours later, we’d be back in the hospital again.
I was supposed to get induced Monday May 4th, but went in to labor that Sunday, the 3rd. I was so thankful to not have to be induced. I remember being mostly calm, much more calm than I expected to be. I knew everything was going to go how it was supposed to go, and I was just focused on getting through it.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted an epdidural or not. By the time I got to where it was pretty much my last chance to get the epidural, I took it. I felt like I got it at the perfect time. I think about 3 hours later, Lucas was born at 1:04AM. (After an hour of pushing)
Y’all, nothing prepares you for birth. You can do all of these things to prepare your body, but nothing can prepare you for the intensity of the love you have for that baby once you lay your eyes on him/her.
Lucas was (and still is) so perfect. I literally could not have asked for a more perfect first child for me, except maybe a little less stubborn😉
I can’t believe my baby, my first born, will be TWO tomorrow! What a whirlwind these past two years have been, and I could not imagine my life any other way. I’m so very lucky to have him, his daddy, and our little baby Logan on the way. My 3 boys 💕
Feeling extra sappy today if you can’t tell.
I love my little fam bam so much much!
