15 Weeks 3 Days

I'm finally starting to feel a little movement from baby!! And I'm actually starting to have a little bump going on.

Our NT Scan went great a couple of weeks ago and our numbers were totally normal. So thats great news!!

My husband and I still haven't agreed on a middle name if we're having a boy, or ANY kind of name if we're having a girl. I guess we still have a long time to go since we're going to be Team Green, but it'd be nice to get somewhere.

Number Two!

Uh oh, everyone watch out!!

Latham #2 is on the way!!!!

Our newest little one is due on february 12th, 2011. Casey and I are REALLY excited to give Haley a little brother or sister. We've decided to go team green this time and wait it out until the baby is born to find out the sex. It is going to be so hard and an extremely long 33 weeks we have left to go, but hopefully we'll be able to hold it out.

Haley Alexis has arrived!

It's only taken me about forever to get this post up!

Haley Alexis arrived on May 26, 2009 at 3:25 pm via c-section. Haley did not "fit", so I had to have a c-section. I pushed for approximately three hours. Casey was the best coach I could have ever asked for. He helped me so much through the entire time. My doc came in and said there was no reason to continue pushing because if she was going to come and she was going to fit through, she would have already been born.

Having a c-section was a lot scarier than I thought it was going to be. Casey had to wait outside the entire time they prepped me and was only brought in right as they started the surgery. He had to sit outside and just wait. He said he was really scared for me and hated that he wasn't in the room with me. I basically cried the entire time, I was absolutely terrified. The surgery went really quick though and Haley was a screaming bloody mess when she came out!

We are doing well at home now, after Haley had to spend a week in the NICU. She has some bleeding in her brain and was having multiple seizures. She is currently being medicated and seen by about a million different doctors. So far she has seen her eye doctor who says she has 20/20 vision so that hasn't been affected at all by the bleeding. Thank God! We'll take it one day at a time and hope that all will be fine in the end. She is a beautiful baby and I am so thankful she is here.

39 week appointment

Ah, I'm terrible, I can't believe I forgot to update.

Anyway, so today I saw my favvvv doctor in the practice. He did an exam and said I am now 2 cm dilated, 80-90% effaced. He also said I have a very favorable cervix and I should do well during labor. I also lost my mucous plug during the exam. He said he also though my membranes were about ready to rupture.

I'm so relieved that things are progressing, but it was a serious wake up call at the same time.

Dr. Balica is on call tomorrow and he said he might see me then. It would be awesome to me if he would deliver because I really feel comfortable with him. He said he doesn't think I'll make it through the weekend.

I'm so excited, I'm going to be a mommy soon!!!!!!!

36 Week Appointment

And we have progress! Doctor said since this is my first baby, I probably wouldn't be dilated, but she was wrong! I am..or I was on Friday 1 CM dilated. I know that isn't a great indicator of what is to come, but oh well! I also had the GBS test done. It was no big deal, just a qtip and boom, done!

I will be back on Friday for my 37 week appointment and see what happens then. She said they don't check for dilation at every appointment, but we will see if they do since I had been dilating previously.

Anyway, I am anxious to get this baby out now. Bring on the contractions!

35 Week Check-Up

Worst Appointment Ever.

My doctor confused me the entire time. First, she said I was measuring on schedule, then she said I was measuring 1 week behind. Second, she said I didn't need to come back for two weeks, but then said I need to come back in 1 week. Third, I wanted to smack her. lol.

So anyway, I am measuring only one week behind now which means I don't have to have a growth ultrasound. I'm a little bummed because I really wanted to get a chance to see her again before she was born, but I guess the wait will make it even better. At the same time, I'm happy I don't have to have it because that means (hopefully!) that nothing fishy is going on in there.

I'll be going back on Friday for a GBS test as well as my first internal. I am terrified! I know that it isn't a great predictor of when labor will begin, but I like to think so anyway. I hope there is some progress, it'll make me at least feel like I won't be overdue. No one knows, except the Haley girl though.
