Seeing Owen

Today Gavin got to see Owen for the first time. It was adorable! Owen was laying in the floor and I decided it would be a good time to skype with the boys if they were up for it so they could see their brother. Xander wasnt interested today, and Mikey just kept showing me things on the camera. But Gavin, once he figured out I could see him, and he could see me, LOVED it. We played peek-a-boo, and then he waved at me on screen. I'd name part of his face, and he'd point to it. Then he started talking about the baby. He even blew us kisses. It was so sweet. I miss my boys a lot, but it helped to see them today. After Gavin blew kisses, he kept touching the screen trying to pet his new baby. He even called him Owen. It's been nice having a clean house, but I'm SO ready for the boys to come home. I miss them a lot more than I'll miss the clean house or the peace and quiet. Cant wait to see you boys!

Owen Marshall Compton

Well folks. He finally came yesterday at 1:39pm. We went in to be induced at 7am and they were crowded so we had to wait till our room was clean. They didnt actually start me on the pit till just after 9am. Labor went really smooth, and his heart rate didnt drop at all. Apparently Owen means lucky. Once he was born our doctor gasped and said, "wow did you see this?" he had a knot in his cord. Thank heaven for modern medicine and being able to be induced early. Who knows how long he could have had that knot, or how much longer he could have lived with it. The doctor said usually if there is a knot you have a still born. I was a lot more nervous with Owen. More worried about if he was going to have health problems, and I know there was angels watching over both of us. Everything went off without a hitch. And we now have a sweet little Owen Marshall to add to our family. We're now a family of 6 and I cant wait for my kiddos to get home from Grandmas to meet their new brother.

Well...I've been dialated to a 3 for 3 weeks now. And I've been 80% effaced for just over 2 weeks. Every time I go into the doctor someone says, "I though for sure we wouldnt see you this time" or "You still havent had that baby yet?" well obviously.

I hate sleeping. I feel like the princess and the pea. I have to have about 50 different pillows and can only stay comfy for about 3 minutes then I have to resituate ALL of them again. I sleep awful, only to wake up the next morning to realize i'm still at my house, and there is still a baby in my tummy instead of in a crib next to me.

I guess the reason why I'm writing right now is cause I had decided (about a month ago) that today would be the day Owen would be born. Yeah..not seeing that happen. I've been having contractions for weeks now. I'm starting to believe they aren't doing anything. I really dont want to go to bed because I'm going to wake up to a whole new WEEK. Just another non-eventful week. Well these posts are getting more and more pathetic. Maybe tomorrow I'll put some pictures up of how clean my house is right now. It's AMAZING. so yes...there is a plus side...I suppose. but for now, I'm going to bow out. Goodnight.

nope... still pregnant

well...I'm home alone. Again. And I really dont mind it. Mom's got the kids, but we're still waiting on Owen. I havent finished completely organizing my house and while I was on the phone with my Wonderful mother today she said, "thats why you haven't gone into labor yet. Owen is waiting for you to get your house just the way you want it, cause you wont have the time to do it after he's born." Ok mom. I'm going to test your theory. I'm gonna go organize my room tonight, get all the loose ends tied up, and by what you say, Owen will come tomorrow. See you then baby.
