It's a GIRL!!

It's a GIRL!! Camdyn Hazel Currie is here!! She was born May 8 at 5:20am, weighing in at 6 lbs 15oz and 19 in long.

Here is our birth story:
As you know I was scheduled to be induced at 7am on May 8th, well I woke up at 1am to go pee. I got back in bed and was laying there and thought 'gosh my underwear is a little wet', did my water break or did I just pee or what?! I got up and sat on the toilet and then finally after about 10 minutes I started dripping....so I got dressed and woke Brent up. He was very confused since it was so early and when I told him my water broke he said "seriously? you're joking right?". By the time we got in the car I was having contractions every 5 minutes. We made it to the hospital at 2:15am, they were VERY busy and moving slow, I didn't get checked til 3am and I was 5cm dilated. I started having intense contractions closer together and she checked me 15 min later and I was 7cm!! I still didn't have an IV or anything and I was asking for an epi (which took awhile). I had to wait for my dr to get there (he was actually on call, I was so happy!) and I started to push at 5am. I pushed for 20 minutes and heard the words 'It's a GIRL', I was SO THRILLED!! Brent was of course crying, just like the last time. That should have been my first clue what a softie his girls make him!

We are home from the hospital and we are doing well, just trying to get settled in and catching up on our sleep! Camdyn is breastfeeding like a champ (way better than Brynn did), and Brynn is being a loving big sister.

Thanks for all your well wishes and thoughts!!

Fun in the Sun

We spend a lot of time outdoors and in this Texas heat we decided Brynn needed her own pool. There is a pool in the backyard at my Mom's, but the little pool will be nice when she wants to get in and I won't have to! We did sign her up for swim lessons starting in June, hopefully those go over well!

Tick Tock, Tick Tock

This baby's time is running out! I went to my dr appt today and I am 90% effaced and 3cm dilated. He said baby's head is really low and engaged and ready for birth. Sooooo whenever that will be!! He offered to induce me next week, since I am no dummy I took him up on it!! So I am giving this baby one more week to come out on it's own, otherwise I am taking it out by force! We scheduled the induction for Thursday May 8th. I was induced with Brynn and had a very pleasant experience, so hopefully everything goes just as smoothly. It is just so nice to know it will be happening soon. And as I am such the planner it is nice to be able to make some plans for Brynn and Brent. Since he doesn't have the luxury of an off-season like last time, he can plan on missing two days of school and then returning back to the academy the following Monday. And Dr. Hedges also told me he is leaving town starting May 11th and will be gone a whole week! He needs to be delivering my baby, not on vacation. Of course now that all these plans are made, the little one might just surprise us and come before.....but there is an end in sight! I am anxious to meet our son or daughter!

Here are some pictures of sisterly love:

Pucker up!

Awwww she looks so SWEET now.....let's see what she does when she actually sees the baby!!
