40 Weeks 2 Days

Clearly Baby Camden was sending a message to us that he'd be arriving on HIS time and not his mama's schedule! Brody came 5 days early so I anticipated that baby #2 would also do the same...not so much. On Thursday Sept 30, I was induced (original due date was Sept 28). I had severe anxiety about the induction worrying myself silly about being in labor all day long and then ending up in a C-section (late ultrasound showed baby was tracking 2 weeks ahead of schedule so in my head i was thinking he'd be some 10lbs!!). Thankfully it couldn't have turned out any better, a great labor and delivery. We arrived at the hospital at 8:30am, the OB broke my water and they started pitocin to get my contractions going...3 hours later with 2 pushes Camden Edwin Ward arrived into the world at 11:25am!

We attempted a family picture before we left for the hospital but as you
can see Brody was not interested!
The beauty of being induced was that I could actually get ready before i had the baby. :)
My big old baby belly...not the most glamorous shot but that's ok!
