Our Brayden Lane!

I know it has been too long since I posted! Things have been so hectic leading up to Brayden’s arrival.

Before I forget the details, I want to document our newest little guy’s birth story.

Two weeks before my scheduled c-section my OB did an ultrasound to measure Brayden. He measured an average of 2 weeks ahead of his due date. His legs measured 40 weeks and 3 days and his weight was 7 lbs 13 oz (Ry’s birthweight!) My OB told me that she expected Brayden to be right at 9 lbs when he was born. By that time I was miserable and just wanted him out!

The night before my scheduled c-section we went to dinner with some of my family. Rylan and sweet baby girl spent the night with family members since we had to be in Winter Haven so early.

My last c-section was not scheduled, so I didn’t really know what to expect with this one. I have to say that the nursing staff at The Regency was amazing! From the time we walked in the door they started working and getting things going. I went into the OR right on time. The anesthesiologist had a little trouble with the spinal block, but once he got it, things moved quickly! They put the drape up and let Matt in. At 9:08 a.m. Brayden Lane was born. They let Matt stand up and watch him be pulled out, which was pretty cool. He came out screaming and peeing.
