Introducing Joaquin Alexander! Born on December 27th at 6:58am by c-section. The short story is water broke on Christmas Eve at 10:30pm but I wasn't in labor. Went to the hospital and confirmed water breaking. Next morning the doctor tried an external version and could only turn him an inch or two. So I stayed in the hospital for two more days pregnant, leaking amniotic fluid, waiting for the steroid shots to help with lung development. Had c-section first thing Saturday morning and now I'm a mom! Totally crazy.
Even though he is 4 weeks early (I was 36 weeks on Christmas) Joaquin is a happy an healthy baby. He weighed 6lbs 1.8ozs and was 19.5in at birth. Thankfully he got the hang of breast feeding right off the bat and continues to eat like a champ. Needless to say we are all in love. I'm going to keep this short since we are all still recovering and getting used to this new schedule but I will try to post more soon!
