October 28th 2010---they said my belly dropped....so we took a picture!
I woke up at around 3 am on Friday the 29th of October...with contractions that lasted 20 sec. and came every 5-7 min. I woke Matt up and we got up around 6:30 and I was still having the contractions but, they hadn't progressed--so we went outside and walked....and walked....making the contractions closer together but shorter. :( after a while we decided that he should go ahead and go on to work, and I would call if anything changed.
By the time Matt got home around 4-ish it was still pretty much the same. But then 5:30 rolls around and I decided to call my Doc. and let her know what was going on...then Tony suggested that I try to change from sitting to laying down to see if the contractions would go away. I stood up and by the time I got to Molly's room to lay down the contractions were 3 min. apart and lasting a whole min. So by six o'clock we hadn't heard back from my Doc. and that is pretty strange for her.......we called again around 6:30 I think.....and told the ER that we were coming in leaving them our cell #.
By the time we left and pulled up to the ER it was 9:00 pm. And when we got to the room it was 9:30.
So anyways....after three pushes around 11:54 PM my sweet little Michael Alan Bates was born.....7 lbs. 12oz and 20 1/2 inches long!!
My name is Jennifer and I am married to a wonderful husband--Matt. So far we have one child named Landon. We are Christians--somewhat conservative, we don't really consider ourselfs a certian kind of Christian though.
I have a Passion for Photography and enjoy all that I learn everytime I pick up the camera as well as all the wonderful people that I meet. It brings me joy to capture the here and now for people to look back on at a later time. :)
