Mac's first days at home

Our baby boy

My blood pressure was up and down during my hospital stay and the headache would not go away, so the decision was made to induce at 35 weeks. The process was started late night on June 15th. I had pretty mild contractions first thing in the morning and they were pretty close together so they didn't have to give me Pitocin at all. Dr. Vu broke my water at 9am and Mac was born at 12:15. It was rough, but quick. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 1 oz and he was only 35 weeks along! His blood sugar dropped and he was jaundiced so he ended up staying in the special care nursery for 6 days. It was so tough, but it seems like a distant memory now!

Introducing Gannon MacGregor (Mac)

Hospital Baby Shower

obviously I haven't updated in a long time, so I'll try to work back to the present...

I was admitted to the hospital in mid-June due to high blood pressure and really bad headaches. The girls had to reschedule my shower and they ended up bringing it to me in the hospital.

Thank you so much to my PEPS friends, you are amazing!
