Our baby--at the hospital

Our Baby--At Home

About to leave the hospital. The little guy didn't like his car seat at first. (Sorry they are blurry)

This was his going home outfit. It was the Virgo outfit that helped us announce to our parents that I was pregnant with Camden--and when he would be arriving.

At home on the couch wrapped in a blanket Auntie Rhonda made for him.

His first time in the swing. He is actually awake in this one....one of the few.

Camden is an EXTREMELY mellow little man. He is just SOOO good! He does like to sleep all day and keep us up all night, but he is JUST. SO. GOOD. We couldn't have asked for a better child.

See this...

It is the 20,000 square foot video screen that this video played on at Saturdays game in the Cowboy stadium. BYU vs. Oklahoma.

I never thought I'd be quite THAT large...kinda embarrassing, but Devin was REALLY proud that I was on the COWBOY's video screen! He wishes he could have gone. But alas, baby's due date was too close to the game for us to feel safe doing that. We had fun watching the game here at home!

70% effaced and 2 cm dilated...

So no change on dilation, but a HUGE difference on effacement (considering I was barely any on Thursday). Plus, the doc can feel Camden's head. If these contractions keep up, maybe I'll have some exciting news by the end of this week!!??

No more pictures, but good news!

Doc says I'm dilated to a 2. He wanted to induce me for next week, but says based on the amount I am dilated, he will wait just a bit longer. I have an appointment on Tuesday, so we'll see if I progress any from now until then!

Other news:

-Dev has now had the flu 9 days. After two doctor appointments, they still aren't testing for H1N1, but don't believe that he has it.

-If I show ANY signs at all of any type of flu when I deliver, they will isolate me from the baby for at least 24 hours. That means no bonding, no feeding, etc.

-The doctor says I should require everyone who comes into the house to wear a mask and/or get both flu vaccinations. Especially considering we have an elderly couple here and will soon have a newborn. Both at high risk. I suppose I will have to buy a box of masks considering we have TONS of people coming in and out of here. Plus, he reminds us how often we need to wash our hands, etc.

These are NOT the circumstances I was imagining bringing a baby into this world. I just hope the flu isn't as bad as they think it will be! But, we've already had 3 of the 4 of us in this house with the regular flu, so guess we will be pretty immune to that! (I'm the only one who hasn't gotten it--which is really a blessing, because someone had to aid these people who are infected AND pregnant women seem to get it worse! Glad I've dodged the bullet for a while. I certainly don't want to have the flu AND be in labor at the same time!!)
