I guess I should start with an update.. Been a while!
1) The pregnancy. Dear God, the pregnancy. I knew that doing this with all the baby weight from Thing 1 still around (you know, the 9-year-old..) plus some was going to make it harder. I underestimated how much harder. We had to deal with high blood pressure, sciatica, etc. At first, we weren't too concerned with the blood pressure because we were blaming it on house hunting/buying (!!!!). We needed more space, and moved the first week of July when I was around 27 weeks.
To make it extra fun, I did it with a few broken toes and a gash from a nail. I fell through some rotted wood on our apartment staircase. Because I love a challenge, apparently..
I had to stop working over a month before my due date and was on and off of bed rest for spotting and the blood pressure. It was a frustrating pregnancy to say the least.
2) My little pisser! Reagan Elizabeth was born 10/4 at 4:52 after about 7.5 hours of labor and 3 pushes. She was 9lbs, 2oz and 20 inches long, and beautiful of course! Chris ADORES her, much more than we expected from a boy his age. He reads to her, plays with her, gets VERY upset if we let her fuss even a moment. She's a very easy going baby in a lot of ways. I can count on one hand the number of times she's CRIED, and most of those have been shot related.
