About 15 hours ago, Aiden Lefty Dembo was born! Official time was 8:49 on January 9th, 2007. Despite staying tight for 36 hours of labor and focing a C-Section, he was only 7 pounds! He’s 19″ inches in length, but I think 2 of those inches were because he had a little bit of a conehead.
Mommy and Baby are both doing great. Happy, healthy, and obviously more than a little sleepy. The way things are scheduled right now, we’ll be in the hospital until Friday, and then we’ll take him home and introduce him to his much furrier older brother, Solo.
Here’s a photo and a video of the little guy. If you click on the photo, you’ll be taken to a gallery of images from his first couple of hours (thanks Dad for uploading those!). Got a bunch more video, but I want to get back to the hospital to take care of the wife, so here’s just a little teaser!

Well today I had what looks to be the last OB appointment I will be having, at least this time around. The doc said that if I don’t go into labor on my own we will start the process rolling on Monday at 8am. Steve and I have to report to the maternity ward and stay until the baby comes. I asked the doctor if he was sure we really had to stay at the hospital the whole time and he said YES. No leaving once they start the process just in case. He said that chances are we wont have the baby until Tuesday.
I kind of freaked a little as we were in the elevator leaving. All the sudden it hit me that I am going to be a mom. I mean I kind of knew that I would be eventually but now there is an actual end date. I wont be pregnant next week at this time. I will have a little baby boy to snuggle and hold and love more then I ever imagined possible.

So as of today he is a day late and now I am starting to understand why pregnant women look so miserable towards the end.
Because it sucks.
I have had an amazing pregnancy. Hardly sick at all, felt pretty good the entire time – UNTIL – the last few days.
Since Friday, I have been pretty unhappy. Everytime I lay down I feel sick to my stomach no matter when I ate last. It feels like he is trying to get out through my leg because of all the pressure. I am tired, cranky (steve can attest to that) and I am ready to be done. So much for wanting him to wait for a little while so he can have a better birthday. Now I am being selfish and I want this over.
I have a doctors appointment this afternoon and he said we would figure out when he is going to induce so I am a little nervous. I am also thinking more and more that the whole epidural thing is a great idea. If I am having this much pain right now and he isnt’ coming out yet then I cant’ even imagine what it is going to feel like soon.
Hope everyone is doing well. Cross your fingers that he says that I should just go have the baby now
Happy Holidays & New Year!
