My pregnancy ended up being similar to my last - horrible swelling and gestational diabetes again, this time ending up with insulin shots 4x daily. It really wasn't so bad but I was so worried that the baby was gaining too quickly, just like as with Lauren.
My OB scheduled my C/S for March 7th. The surgery went so smoothly...and at 8:38am, I heard Tim shout "It's a BOY" Evan Andrew Bradley weighed in at a whopping 10lbs 4oz, born at 38w5d (just like Lauren).
He is a wonderful little dude, so friendly and full of smiles. We are celebrating his first birthday in just over a week. I can't believe this year has gone so fast. He fills our days with laughter and smiles, but it hasn't always been like that - his first 3-4 months were very hard on me. He needed to nurse OFTEN and cried A LOT...He is quite a Mama's Boy and often cries when I leave or am not in eye sight. I admit, I love that he loves me so much - but find it so hard when I am the only one who can soothe him. He is a mini-me of his Daddy...our little Timbit. Evan loves his big sister and is starting to play along side of her...or jump on top of her for a few body slams.
Evan is a wonderful addition to our family.
