Blogging obviously isn't my strong point but I will try to at least keep everyone posted on the big events in our life. Ten days ago was by far the biggest and best event of our lives. Our son, Griffin Michael Hildebrand, arrived on April 20th, ten long days past his due date.
About 5 days past my due date we had and ultrasound to check fluid levels and the overall health of the baby and they found that the fluid levels were low. They gave me the option of being induced that day or waiting through the weekend to see if I would finally go into labor on my own. I really wanted to have a natural birth so I waited it out but labor sadly didn't come. When they checked the fluid levels on Monday they found they were dangerously low and they calmly told us that we would be having our baby that day and to head over to the hospital to be induced. After two long days and a c-section we finally met our little boy. I will never forget seeing him for the first time. He was so perfect and we are so in love. He is a fantastic baby and we so blessed to have such a healthy, happy boy. He weighed in at 7lbs 5 ounces and was amazingly alert from the moment he arrived.
