My son Cavan Anthony Robinson was born on April 3rd at 11:57am @ 38weeks.
On April 2nd I had my weekly appointment with the fetal specialist. The technician doing the exam was unable to get any movements from the baby. I was put on the monitor for about an hour to monitor the baby and get baby to move. After trying everything to wake up baby nothing worked. While on the monitor I was told I was having contractions, but I wasn't feeling them. The specialist called my OB and I was admitted to the hospital for observation and monitoring. Of course everything looked fine and baby started moving, once I got to the hospital. My contractions got stronger but not strong enough to deliver. Seeing I was only 1 week away from my scheduled C-section, my OB decided to perform my C-section on 4/3 at 11:30am. It was such a wonderful feeling when we heard LO first cry and the doc said it's a boy. My husband and I had opted not to find out the sex until birth. It was the greatest feeling in the world. I feel so blessed I now have a boy and girl. I got my tubes tied at delivery so hopefully no more babies J.
Congrats on your little man. It's been awhile since I've been on the board. I've been very busy with the little one. My husband is back on the road traveling so I now have a 5yr and a newborn. I don't have enough time in the day to get everything done. I'm so sorry; I didn't know you delivered before I did, seeing we had the same due date. Not sure how I missed that. Did you post your birth story? I'd love to read it. I know you're enjoying your little man. Congrats again.
