Logan Micheal Lainhart

Well after 22 hours of labor and a c-section we have a beautiful baby boy. Logan was born on Sept. 11th at 10:12am and he came out weighing 8lbs 14oz. He is a big, perfect, beautiful boy with chubby cheeks. Labor was horrible, I was exhausted and ready to have him out. His heart rate was dropping after every contraction so I had to wear an oxygen mask for most of the night. After 22 hours I was only ever dilated to a 7 and since he heart rate was bad they finally decided that a c-section was the was to go. During the surgery they found out that the cord was rapped around his neck once which was also not helping the process. But is all worked out in the end and now we have our baby. I am so sore and so tired. I didn't expect to be in so much pain but it was defiantly worth it. He is having a little trouble nursing because my milk has not come in yet so he is not getting enough to eat when I do feed him. The nurse came in today and told us that he actually has lost a pound and now weighs 7lbs 14oz so she recommended that along with breast feeding that I give him some formula as well so he doesn't lose more weight. We agreed that it was probably a good idea to give him formula so he can stay healthy. We both love him so much and think he is so cute. Mike is in love and is willing to do anything for him and for me. He has been a great support and so helpful since I can't do much right now. Here are a few pictures of him for everyone to see. I am curious on who people thinks he looks like more so let meknow what you think...enjoy...

Well today was just another day and Mike and I headed to the our weekly doctors appointment. We weren't expecting much but we left with really big news. He measured my belly and it was measuring 41 cm which is 2 cm bigger than it is supposed to be. Then he checked my cervix and I was 70 percent effaced and 1 cm dilated. Then he proceed to say "So lets have this baby...tomorrow!" I was so excited! He said that he did not want to risk my belly getting too much bigger than it already was so he wanted to get him out. So we will be going to the hospital tomorrow at noon to start the induction. It worked out perfectly cause it gave my mom enough time to change her ticket and figure out her work schedule and she will be coming tonight. Mike has a permanent smile on his face and he is so excited. I on the other hand am starting to get really nervous. Its scary to think that tomorrow I am going to be in a lot of pain and that we will have a little human to take care of. I am so excited to meet my son and to hold him so I hope that everything goes well. Mike will have his phone all day tomorrow so he will be making calls and keeping everyone up to speed. We will post pictures as soon as we can. Love you all!

just a little update

Well things here in the Lainhart world have not been to exciting. Mike has just completed his 2 weeks of working the night shift at Lowes and I am so excited to have him back to a normal schedule. It seems like everything that could go wrong this week did go wrong. First the brakes on my car went out and cost a small fortune to get fixed, but thankfully I have amazing parents that were willing to help out with that. Then, we ran out food but thankfully I have amazing parents-in-law that took us to Sams Club to stalk us up. And lastly, Mikes car got a flat tire so I had to drive him too and from work. Thankfully he was able to fill up the tire with air and hopefully it will last for a while. On the baby front, when I went to my doctors appointment on Wednesday apparently there is still no progress. I was really upset because I just really want to meet our little boy and hold him in my arms, not to mention I am so completly uncomfortable it is insane. With less than 10 days left I am starting to get really anxious. I think Mike is just in a daze waiting for little Logan to make his appearance. We are both getting really excited for the temple and have everything squared away for the big day. I finished the invites and people should be expecting them any day now. We have our next doctors appointment on the Wednesday and then we have another on Monday and that will be our last, and if there is still no baby on the 16th we will be meeting him on the 17th. So until next time that is the update! Love you all!
