Mary and Robby's 1st journey!!

Well were do I start!!! We will be married 5 years on June 15th 2007.
Man time flies when you are having fun!! Mary is a nurse and I am a high school math teacher.
Mary broke the news to me Monday April 30th when she said in a really funny toned voice "Congratulations......." then a pause.."Im pregnant." as she sat on the floor in the bathroom!!!! She called her Dr. and they said our due date is Dec 23rd 2007.

She is just starting week 7 and she has her 1st Dr appt. May 24. I will post more info soon. Till then all i can say is that I LOVE MARY SOOOO MUCH and i am so proud to have her as my wife!

Mary had another good day yesterday. She had to work her 12 hr shift at the hospital and it was good. She had a light luch and when she came home she was in a good mood and was hungry. She had a nice supper and then we went to the store and took the whole family. (Crockett- 5 yr old choc. lab, Bailey-1.5 yr old cocker spaniel and of course the little peanut inside her Smile
She was tired when we got back so we sat around and talked then went to bed. We had a good talk about our plans down the road.

Mary does not know that I am doing this so when we start telling everyone I will tell her about this.

Till then
I LOVE MARY (soon to be GREAT MOM)

We still have not told any1 until yesterday. Our friend Mike was over at our house and he was up stairs and he went to the bathroom and one of mary's pregnancy books was out. HE WAS SHOCKED!!! So we told him the whole story!! He was really excited!!! He told us he would not tell ANY1 but we knew he would tell Emily his wife. SO they called back and wanted to come over and talk. YES he told her she knew he was up to something. So the 4 our us talked for about 1 hour last night. They will be such good support for us!!! So now 2 people know. We are still waiting till week 12 to tell

Its been a busy summer so far. Mary is still working and i am coaching basketball. Mary went to the dr on tues while i was at basketball camp. they checked for the heartbeat. after a few min of trying the dr could not find a HB. It was a little tense to say the least, but she did find the HB. the DR said "that baby is all over the place" Smile takes after the dad!!!
Mary has gained 3 pounds since her last dr visit. the HR was 150 so all is good here. we go july 12th for next ultrasound and find out if it is a girl or boy

Rest of story

Everything happened so fast Mary started having back pains Mon Dec 3rd and she said that she thinks it was from work. We had a Dr. appt on Thur Dec 6th. We went and the DR checked and said that Mary was 2-3 cm dil. and 80% afaced. The dr also said that Grace had "lots of hair" . We left the dr and walk the mall and other places. Mary came to my ball game and had a few contractions and late Thur night at 12.30am Mary's mucus plug came out. I sayed home from work and we went walking the stores again. Her back pain stopped. We went out to eat with Emily and Mike and her contractions started again. AT about 2:30 am sat Dec 8th Marys water broke. She woke me up and we had to go to Walmart to her her some pads for the leaking water, then off to the hospital. We arrived about 5am and they did the test to see if her water had broke and sure enough it had!
THey put is in our room about 6am at about 8am they had her all hooked up and the lady came in and started her epidural. Her parents and my parents were there with us. After that Mary felt GREAT!! The contractions were about 10-12 min apart and she stayed 2-3 cm dil up till about 12:30 when the contractions were about 8 min apart and she was 4 cm dil. At aout 1:30 she went to a 6 cm dil and she started to feel lots of pain. At about 2:00 she was 8cm dil and at 2:15pm she was at 9 cm dil. At 2:20 the Dr came in and the nurse said its time to start pushing. At 2:44pm Grace Emory Parker was born!!!
WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

What a journey!!!
The fun has only begun!!!
I love you Mary
I love you Grace
