Hello Jack!

He's here! He's here! This is the official post for the arrival of Jack Gentry Deitrich. Born on June 10th, 2011 weighing in at 8lbs. 7oz. and 21 inches long. The C-section went just as planned and everyone is healthy and doing well! Due to lack of sleep, I will post more details of the big day(s) at a later time. But for now, all praise to our Father in heaven for such a beautiful gift!

Update on our little trip to the Hospital!

Update: I went to the hospital yesterday after having contractions for several hours, they were 4-6 min. apart, which is usually what they want to see. I stayed at the hospital (in Niles) from 1-5pm and they pumped me with IV fluids to try and get the contractions to subside. They also monitored my contractions which were showing a really good pattern and the Doc even told me "Wow, that baby is really bulging out of there, you'll probably have that baby today!" which got us all excited. After a few more hours, they determined that my cervix had no real change which is the determining factor of what is true labor, so they discharged me and I went home...

I continued to have contractions through the night last night, but nothing really bad, and by this morning I feel great! Must be that little sleeping pill they gave me at the hospital ;) So nothing to report. They just want me to be on semi-bed rest-so very little activity. The good Lord only knows when this baby will come! I may still make it to my scheduled C-section next Friday. But they want to keep an eye on me since I am having a c-section, I need to make it to the hospital before baby comes so they can do it that way.

A friend of mine who is also almost exactly the same amount of weeks as I am, was having contractions all day yesterday. So who knows? The weather maybe? I was also out shoveling in our yard the day before(woops).

I'll keep ya posted if I have a baby!
