Our daughter has finally arrive! Parker May was born at 11:30am on Saturday, November 16, 2019! Abby and I couldn’t be happier.
I have to apologize for the lack of posts over the month leading up to her birth. It has been busy, prepping everything for Parker’s arrival and dealing with Braxton-hicks contractions. Even with all the prepping, we still were not ready for her to arrive! Abby and I went to a regularly scheduled OB/GYN appointment for a pregnancy checkup, and Abby’s blood pressure was a little high. Since this was the second time in a few weeks, and the day was our girl’s actual due, the doctor thought it was best to go right to the hospital and induce Abby. Let me tell you, that was a shock to both of us! Our hospital bag was home, we both were expecting to work that day, etc.
I believe I handled it rather well, a little shell-shocked at first, but then got really excited and was all on bored. Abby, on the other hand, was much more nervous. She triple checked with the doctor, wanted to grab the bags from home. I wasn’t having any of that! Doctor says go to hospital, we are going to the hospital!
Long story short, Abby was induced, and after 24 hours of labor, and more than 2 hours of pushing, she was taken in for a c-section, and not much longer, we had ourselves a beautiful, healthy baby Parker.
And let me tell you, she is perfect.
