Nathan Daniel Deich

He was born July 19th 2011
11:32 pm
7 lbs 11 ounces 20 inches

I had a doctors appointment on July 19th. I went to the appt. and the doctor asked me when I was due. I told her July 20th. She took me in the back and placed me on a monitor for 20 mins and then gave me an ultrasound to measure my fluids. After all that she then checked me to see how far I was dialated. I was 3 to 4 cm. She said that my fluid was low, too low for her liking so she sent me off to the hospital. I called my friend Desiree and told her what was going on and she took Matt for us. We had lunch and I was trying to push it off as much as I could since my mom's flight was cancelled the day before and was flying in today. Her flight didn't get in until 7:30 pm and our great friends Nick and Jessica A were going to bring her to us from the airport. We got to the hospital around 12:30 pm had my upper by 2 pm. All day my contraction were 2 mins apart and still was in the 4 cm range. They gave me potassium
and everything. My mom finally arrived around 9:30 pm. Within an hour of her being there Nathan went from 4 cm to 8 cm. I am pretty sure he was waiting for her to get there to see him born. She hasn't missed the birth of any of her grand kids yet! Finally he arrived. I cried cause I wasn't sure how in the world I can raise 2 boys. I am scared to death. Not only that he was going to be born on his uncle Jareds birthday. Talk about not hearing the end of it. LOL

My big baby boy. He was only 1/2 an ounce shy from Matthew. Matthew was 7 lbs 11.5 ounces. and 19 inches long. Husband calls me the baby making machine. I have perfect kids. They all come out just about the same size. LOL

Matthew wasn't to sure of his baby brother just yet. But now he is such a great big brother. He has helped us out so much. From getting diapers, to holding him, and he even wants to take him to one us. Matthew is 42 lbs and can really hold his own. I am really proud of Matthew. He has done really well with his potty training too.
