Our wait is over… So happy!

 He is here!

Yesterday 25th of January we welcomed our first born to the world. He is finally there!

Eicca Francis Morgoth has seen the light of day with squinty eyes. He is so qute and small, but he seem to like us and loves our bad singing voices.

My wife is doning wel, she was up a bit this morning  and ofcourse the surgery does make her hurt this morning.

For everybody out there, keep the faith, he was over 6 years in the making, but he is here now… Later more!

Current mood: impatient

Well today was en exiting day. The doctor check everything out and feels that our baby will not grow much more from now on (the last two weeks) due to low amniotic fluid, increasing blood pressure and thus indications for a less good functioning placenta at this stage. A C-section it is!

Schedueled for tomorrow, 25 january (local time).

Keep your fingers crossed for low delivery traffic tomorrow, it is time to meet our future. Can’t wait!

Hello readers. Here is the husband.

So we are trotting 37-38 weeks along and we just found out the the amount of amniotic fluid is critically low. My wife is now in the Hospital for observation with a follow-up ultra sound tomorrow. Then they will check the blood flows in our baby.

I feel that it is getting close. If not they start trying getting him out tomorrow then I assume Thursday.  We hae to see. It is getting exciting now. So send those good vibes! Not only is my wife bored out of her skull in the hospital, it is also scary to be alone there with such complications (even though I visit as much as I can).

Hope next post is with happy news and pictures. Keep the faith!

Yesterday I heard that we were getting an ultra sound on Monday, and that lifted a big ass weight off my shoulders. Even if it just means seeing pupo again. My brain must have relaxed a bit, because last night I had a VERY hot dream involving Gavin Rossdale ( you know the guy from Bush and unfortunately nasty Gwen Stefani’s baby daddy).

It was so realistic, because we were actually sneaking around…. he was apparently her ‘nanny’ while she toured.. and i was 9 months pregnant, but stilll… DAMN::

I woke up feeling a bit more normal, which is a good thing I am sure! I will update everyone Monday… thanks for the support.. must keep the happy dreams coming!!
Have a nice weekend!!

I posted this on myspace and wanted to let you know too… sorry so long! byeee and hope all is well with you guys!

So, we had some apts this week. The first Monday the standard apt wtih the midwife. All was okay, I have a bit of swelling in my legs, which I didn’t notice, but she did.. but said it was normal.

Then to the gyno from hell who says she speaks English, but for some reason her English lost her that morning. She immediately said when we sat down, oh it looks like you will be having a big baby. I dunno if that was because Marco is so tall, or because I look huge, but regardless she is wrong and we told her straight that we have been paying for private ultra sounds and they have measured him on target thanks!

She didn’t do much, pushed around a bit and checked his heartbeat. The real apt was yesterday at this private dr. She said he looked good, a bit over 6 lbs already, which was right on target and he was moving around. It looked so crowded in there, I really couldn’t see any specific part of him. She also said his head was still down, which is GREAT and that I was softening.. another good thing- the body getting ready.

The not so nice news was that she said there was a bit too little amniotic fluid or baby water. It ranges from 7 oz to 2 liters and mine was close to the 7 ounces. At this point she wanted to emphasise not to panic and that if it was a horrible thing she would send me to the university hospital asap. She just wanted to have me go next week to have it checked again.

At this point the baby is grown and developed and in her opinion could be taken out at anytime without harm, but she wants to wait a bit. She also said because of this, she doesn’t want me going over the due date, feb 8th so in about 3 weeks pupo will be here!

Of course when we got home all I did was cry and search the net about this. I can’t even fathom the thought that there is something wrong now with him. I feel we have been through so much- and sorry if not all of you know what we’ve been through, but this hasn’t been an easy journey and we just want our baby here!

Sleeping was so difficult. I tossed and turned all night and couldn’t stop thinking for one second. If he is okay now, all I can say it fucking get him out. Don’t wait a few more weeks when things can decline!!! That seems too extreme here, I know, but still.. wish us lots of strength and love the next few weeks.

I will update you once I hear a bit more, hopefully next week we can get to the hospital and they can see what his water is like then.. but we are ready for this guy!

Take care everyone!!
