Family Equation

March 16, 2009 at 1:11 am 5 comments

1 husband + 1 wife + 4 years of dreaming = 1 life-altering decision

0 birth control + 2 tries = 2 pink lines on a pregnancy test

(1 month early + 15 hrs of labor + 0 pain medication + 35 minutes of pushing) =( 4 1/2 lbs of tiny perfection + 17 inches of pure love)

                                               X

1 mom + 1 dad + 24 months of planning = life altering decision(2)

0 birth control + 1 try = 2 pink lines on pregnancy test

4 cm dilated + 100% effaced + 0 station x 3 weeks = 1 anxious pregnant woman

3 hours of labor + stuck at 6 cm dilated = 1 long metal device used to break bag of waters

1 broken bag of waters + 0 pain medication = 1 woman in an immeasurable amount of pain

(1 broken bag of waters + 30 minutes) = (1 cervix dialated from 6-10 cm + birth of 1 baby)

6 lbs, 11 oz of lovable sweetness + 20 inches of indescribable happiness =

                                          1 blessed family

    Thanks Mom I Am! And you’re welcome…us newbies gotta hook each other up. I love your blog…and that you’re a Dr. Suess fan. We love the Suess books around here too and did a Sam I Am theme in my son Sam’s room.

    I look forward to reading more about Thing 1 and Thing 2 on your blog!

    I’m sorry, did you say “0 medication?”

    Twice?

    Wow, I think that = 1 SUPER WOMAN.

    (I’ll just go ahead and blame my two 9lb babies on the fact that I started an IV of epidural before I left my house for the hospital…)

    What a beautiful family 🙂

    I only had one non- C-section birth. I was screamin’ for the drugs and then they came and told me no! Too far along. I’m impressed you did it once. Twice, well, you are made of steel, woman!

    I don’t know how you did it without meds. Amazing. Though your fertility matched mine.
