My water broke at 36 weeks. Soon after that my sons umbilical cord came out. We rushed to the hospital and immediately the nurses were in panic mode. (This has only happened at our hospital 2 times included myself) They kept telling me my son might not make it and rushed me into the OR. I was out and in surgery within minutes. My boyfriend and 20+ family members waited in the waiting room in silence waiting to hear that we were alright. Doctor Munger delivered Asher weighing 6 pound 6 ounces on October 20th 2010. With all the panic it was the best feeling ever waking up and seeing my boyfriend hold our healthy baby. I’m due the end of August and I’m just hoping she comes out as planned. (:
My birth story started out with the doctors appointment. I was fourty weeks and two days and absolutely miserable swollen ankles and everything. I remember the doctor sitting here saying you may start dilating next week so come back than. I looked at him and said but your nurse practitioner told me that I could choose to be induced or whatever after fourty weeks and she did say that my fiance and mother were standing there. The doctor looked at me and said go get the ultrasound done and tell me what the size is. I go get an ultrasound done so that he will agree to do the c section because I knew this kid was huge well needless to say the next day I got my wish and matthew james ortmeier was brought into this world via c section on 02-23-2011 at eight eleven in the morning he was eight pounds and fourteen poin eight ounces. and has been quite an intereesting part of mine and brents life.

Thinking of using cloth diapers for your new little bundle?
Here are the the types of cloth diapers available and the pros and cons of each:
All In One’s
PROS: Easy to use. Makes diaper changes fast and easy.
CONS: Long drying times. Wear out fast due to frequent washings.
All In Two’s
PROS: Easy to use. Daycare friendly. High resale value. Most like disposables.
CONS: Expensive. Need a large quantity.
PROS: Not too bulky. Keeps baby dry as moisture is pulled away from the skin quickly.
CONS: Long drying times. May have problems with build-up on the synthetic liners.
What about you, Mom? Do you cloth diaper or plan to? What brand do you love and use? Tell us!
Quads…Beautiful… Completely speechless at how sweet this is. <3
