Preggo my Eggo Update: 39 weeks down, 0 to go. My Sponsor Has Arrived

Ta Da! He's here. He's chubby. He throws up and sleeps a lot. Sorry to keep you in suspense with the 39-week update, but we kind of wanted to keep it a secret for a bit. Even from our friends and family. We wanted to wait until we all got acquainted and The Quiet Contemplator got to meet him. Things are hunky dory thus far.

Born: Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 8:34 p.m.
Chubbiness: 7 pounds 11 ounces 19.5 inches
Name: My Sponsor TBD

Birth story to follow once I have a chance to get some sleep/can think straight.

Until then, here is a quick outline of how it went down:

1130am arrive at hospital and gown up
12pm first fisting. Holy mother of god that hurt. 1.5 cm
1pm pitocin started
3pm water broken 2.5 cm
445pm  epi
5pm ridiculous itching from epi. 4 cm
6:30pm catheter 5 cm
715pm 6 cm
8pm feel like I have to poop. Wait for dr. 10 cm
8:30pm dr arrives. Start pushing.
8:34pm he's here! I know, I suck.

Hilarity to ensue once the warm and fuzzy new baby feelings wear off and the reality sets it. Stay tuned!


  1. Congratulations! I've enjoyed following your blog as I was due with #1 a week before you (12/21). Our little guy decided to come 10 days early though. Hooray for our December babies. :)

  2. I've been following your blog cause we were due very close to the same time (except mine was by adoption) and you are hilarious. Our boy came on his own on Friday the 23rd! We just got home on Christmas day.

  3. Congrats, Beth and Vicky! How exciting. And thanks to everyone for the well wishes.


    Congratulations :)
    What a nice little Christmas present.
    Hope you are getting something that somewhat resembles "sleep."

  5. Even though I didn't push my kid out, I've got to think that only 4 minutes of pushing is pretty darn amazing. Go you! And congratulations!

  6. Dude. I found your blog a few weeks ago and I thought to myself, she's pretty funny and I like what she writes. I'm on board. But now, I saw that you pushed for only four fucking minutes and your baby was born and now I pretty much think that you suck. We're going to have to break up.
    Ha, no really, I'm just jealous because I pushed for 2.5 hours and the baby didn't move, resulting in c-sections from there on out. I'm also jealous because I LOVE the baby phase and to me, newborns are my heroin...I can't get enough and wish I could have babies all day long. I am stoked for you and your new baby and wish you all the best, even though I have no idea who you are. CONGRATULATIONS!! :))


I love hearing from you. It reinforces that writing this blog is not just a silly waste of my brain matter. If you leave a douche canoe comment, I will delete it. I am powerful like that.
