Liam woke up today and had a fever. It was 101.3. I immediatley called Dr. Tedford and his nurse said it could be because he is teething. Liam had been grabbing his right ear all weekend and at first I thought it was a developmental thing, and I was so excited saying "He found his ear!". Now I'm wondering if he is grabbing it because it hurts!! Poor Guy. I let the nurse know this, and they want to see him today to rule out an ear infection. It's so hard leaving him when he is sick. Being a mom is so wonderful, but I hate worrying all the time, and it seems that worrying is just apart of being a parent. Do you ever stop?

Liam rolled over yesterday!! And I missed it! Actually his daddy missed it too. Matt said he went into the kitchen to start dinner, and when he came back in the room Liam had rolled over onto his belly!! Such a BIG BOY!! We can't believe how fast he is growing. Hopefully we will see it soon!!

This blog has been started as a way to record all the exciting moments in Liam's life. So it only seems fitting to start at Day 1.
2. It is very common to vomit while getting an epidural, and you cannot move, thus throwing up in your partners face.
3. Shaking uncontrollably while getting an epidural (but told to stay still) is also fairly common.
4. Last but not least. Most women are having contractions while receiving an epidural, and you cannot move while feeling excruciating pain.
He went to go prep for a c-section. The worst part about this was that it took them an hour to prep for surgery and for the anesthesiologist to come back in. Ladies...note to self: Once they turn down/off the epidural they CANNOT turn in back up/on without the anesthesiologist. So I had to sit there for I don't know how long just feeling the contractions. This is when I went into another world. Thank God for Matt's aunt. The pain was so intense I felt the need to scream, hit, kick, walk, cry. I couldn't lay still. I was dying of thirst and was unable to have any ice chips or water because of the pending C-section. I literally thought I was going to die. Matt's aunt helped keep me focused as Matt was no longer able to. I remember just shaking in pain hoping it would be over soon. I was beyond exhausted.
|Somebody should have made me get my hair done!! However, this was the sweetest moment of my life.|
Anyway that’s our story of how Liam came into this world. Yes, it was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life, but so worth it. It’s amazing how quickly you forget the pain once they put that baby in your arms. I remember thinking “nothing else matters”.
Life is good.
