Like I mentioned in the previous post, we have never been able to capture any of the moments of the girls being born, so having pictures of Maverick's birth are extra special. I was scheduled for Monday, but we ended up at the hospital late Sunday night because I was contracting every 8-10 minutes. Thankfully the contractions calmed down after a shot of terb because my dr would not have been able to deliver me. After all we had been through, I REALLY wanted my dr to be the one to deliver. So we made it to our originally scheduled time. It was a much calmer experice. I was able to walk to the OR and I sat on the table while the nurses were able to take their time to set everything up. Much different from my previous expericences. The surgery went well. When my dr opened me up though, he was shocked to find that my uterus was very close to rupturing. Apparently you aren't supposed to see through your uterus, and he showed Danny that you could see the baby through mine. The baby came out just fine and instead of getting immediately rushed away to the NICU, Danny got to enjoy all the normal Daddy duties of a full term baby. My dr pulled Danny over to the table again to show him how thin my uterus was. He stuck his hand in my uterus and Danny said it looked like a clear plastic bag. Anyways, we are SO thankful for a safe full term delivery.
**So proud of Danny for capturing this moment. Hearing Maverick's first cry.**
**Our 8lb 5oz boy!!**

Just a quick post to say hello and to show off the little guy. Maverick Ralph Nausha was born Monday, March 19th at 1:07pm. He weighed 8lbs 5oz and was 20 1/2inches long. Everything went well. I will try to do another post about the delivery. My c-section went well and for the first time ever we got pictures in the OR. We just got home yesterday(Thursday) and everything is going great! I will be back asap with more posts and pictures. We are ALL SOOOO in love with this little guy. SO SO thankful for our little blessing. =)

Well I thought I was on the verge of having this baby! But what do I know!? I laughed when my ob's goal was to get me to 34 weeks and I laughed even harder when my high risk dr said I had to get to 36. And here I am at 37 weeks!!! Plugging right along, not on any medication or bed rest. I feel better than ever and I'm up moving around acting like a normal pregnant woman. Now, I can't get this baby to come out! It blows my mind to think I have a 7lb baby in my tummy. What a blessing. As much as I can't wait to meet this little guy, I am definitely enjoying my last days pregnant. I am loving all his movements, I know that is what I will miss most. I laugh at my reflection because it is so funny to see my belly so big! I've been back at church the last 2 weeks and it's been so nice! What a journey this has been. Hopefully my next post will be announcing mavericks arrival....or just another quick update to let y'all know I'm still pregnant. :-)
