Madden Cole McAllister

I went in for my routine NST at the hospital on Thursday. The monitoring went great and baby looked great. After that, I went upstairs to Dr. Smith. The nurse checked my blood pressure, and shocker, it was high. Dr. Smith came in after awhile and said very bluntly that it was too high, was going to be out of town for a week, this baby is coming today. He left the room and came back. He said that the hospital is scheduled for 5:30, cut time. I would need to go back downstairs and get my blood drawn for labs, go home, get my bags and return. I did just that.

Madden was born at 5:55 pm on October 22. He weighed 8lbs 2oz and is 20 inches long. He was born healthy and beautiful, identical to Jack. I stayed in the hospital for 4 days and really enjoyed every minute of it! I just love being taken care of! John was fabulous, the only downfall of the whole stay was that I REALLY missed my kids! It just broke my heart that the only way they could see me was through the exterior window to my hospital room. I don't think that memory will ever go away!

I am home now and baby is doing great. I am so glad to be done having kids-and am glad that my family is complete!
