Or at least thats how special this little man is to me!
Here is his pregnancy journal.
Here is his updates..
Adam Morgan was born on august 27th at 4:28 PM by Cesarean section.
He was 8lbs 2 oz's and 21 ins long
his apgars were 8 and 9
He is beautiful..but check him out yourself!
me waitin for c-sect
uncomfortable from catheter
3 days and going home!
Addy was delivered by scheduled c-section do to 2 previous c-sections, I had originally planned with my first baby boy Riley To have a vaginal birth with pain meds(not natural..I am not crazy or do I enjoy horrendous pain..if thats too posh then screw you, I am sorry if I am blunt but you probably would think this if you had a "natural birth"!)
Continuing on, My son Riley was my first pregnancy to make it past 3 months..I had 2 miscarriages(3 in total, yes my body is screwed up but getting better with each kid..practice does make perfect!)
I was told at 30 wks I had a bv infection and 2wks and 3 days later my water broke,I spend 3 days on hospital bed rest contracting and laboring despite med's to stop labor, I got real sick,he go real sick so my OB rushed me for a emergancy c-section...My next pregnancy went well but my little man being a normal man was too stubborn to ask for directions and remained firmly stuck breech under my left rib...so VBAC was not an option!
My third I didnt even bother..I have no clue if he was head down..he was at my 31 wk scan...
Believe it or not my c-section was a great experiance the last 2 times I had it, I came in on my 3rd time,not nervous,excited and a seasoned mommy,talking and joking with the medical staff(they are so supportive and sweet!) when can you do that with the normal way? My hubby came in after a painless epidoral was placed and he held my hand while Addy slipped in to the world....just like a vaginal but quicker and less pain and I could know the day he was being born so my older son's can spend time with gramma and grandpa being spoiled,no "Is this it." no failed inductions no streched,torn, and disfigured vaginals...heck my scar is hardly visable and only my hubby sees it anyhow and enjoys his perfect womans area!! I was up and walking just after his birth,sooner if my nurse would let me!! I was able to breast feed with in 1 hour of birth with no issues both times...Ryan made it to 6 months and might have went further but he was early tooth popper so we stopped...that and mommy was preggo agian the next month or so!! No guilt ,no worries..in either case I got my baby and thats all that matters and he IS one of the most gorgeous babies yet and thats saying a lot becuase I think that with all my kids...when ever I think they can't get any more perfect I have another!
Here is his birth story.
So I woke up and got the kiddos to my Mil's, we had to be in the hospital at 9:00 am. We go there and had to wait 15 mins to get to our own room, which we had to share They hooked up my IV(had to poke me 2 times to get it in..it hurts worst them the epidural) put my catheter in at 10:36 am...uggghhh! It feels like I had the worst case of a UTI I have ever felt with that in the vaginal area. I had to wait until 2:30 to get back to be prepped for the surgery, got brought back to the OR to get my Epi in and A lady comes in and tells us there is a emergency c-sect and out I go to sit another hour with this nasty catheter in dieing of misery...finally its my turn...so they wheel me in the OR get my Epi in and set me on the table(sweet relief)..they give me nausea meds because I was gonna getting sick and at 4:28 pm my son is born with a huge head of gorgeous black hair and a nice set of lungs!! Dad and I hold the precious little man and bond while they sew me up. They say my uterus looks good and so does my incision....I did very well.
The rest of the hospital stay was fine, but I had a bunch of ghetto trash in my room trying to peep on me while breastfeeding and tried to steal my camera..finally after threatening to leave I had my own room. All went fine after that..I got Discharged at 3:10 pm on Saturday...went to visit relatives and went home later on that night.
I must say I never thought my pregnancy would have made it so far (39 wks) or how precious and absolutely perfect this man is, he is so calm, so easy tempered....Thanks god,Jesus or whoever that gave me this miracle.
He is doing beautiful...he is now 8lbs 9 oz's he went down from 8'2oz to 7'9 then right back up one wk later! he is an expert boobie feeder!
proud bra-bra(he had some jaundice..so he was yellow)

Adder's cupadders cupmy fav pic of himstanding addersstanding adders.
apparently my milk was dwindling due to my birth control, he lost 1/2 a lb so we started supplementing with good start formula with natural cultures...8oz's a day...we added meats too...so he is getting fruits veggies and meats...
He put on 1lb in 3 wks...he is still considered under weight due to his height to weight ration...he is 18% for weight and 75% for height....
My older boys were 18.5-20lbs at this point so he is my lightest...:eek:
Addy needs to get tubes in his ears....:(
He got tubes put in his ears at 7:30 on April 15th...he did well...I was worst then him...I cried as he left to go to surgery....he was cranky mos t of the day but is doing well now.
He is going for a sweat test on the end of the month to test for cystic fibrosis due to his bronchitis infections and his poor weight gain.
He has had quite a bit of temperament change...he loves to play with his toys on the floor and he is is just so friendly and calm...a super prince charming...he has a new game he is now squealing at his older brother and likes to have his brother squeal at him and run away...he just gets a big kick out of it...
