Nana and quade with the giraffe
My mom has been such a huge help. She watched quade for the days we were in the hospital and was even dedicated enough to take him to his first day of sunday school the day after price was born (our friends were shocked to see him there and were hoping Bruce hadn't left me at the hospital to bring quade to church!). Since we have been home mom has taken quade's monitor in her room and gotten up with him each morning. It has been so nice to be able to focus on price at night, sleep in a little, come downstairs and find quade finishing up breakfast. Then i get to sit on the couch and have a fabulous breakfast brought to me on a tray (this morning i had homemade french toast). She has also made us dinner each night, including some gigantic t-bone steaks! One more huge help has been having the extra hands to be able to take quade out of the house once and awhile. There are some pictures below of our trip to the zoo (which i would not have attempted if she was not here).
the brothers and the lion!
So, thanks mom!! you're the best and i don't know what i'm going to do when you live this weekend...i know i won't be eating french toast for breakfast that's for sure. =)
Obviously, Bruce has been a huge help as well. He has been very sweet and a huge emotional support. Since this time around we have had less family here while we were at the hospital we had some good time just he and I to hang out and recover. My last day at the hospital bruce surprised me with my most favorite dessert...a chocolate sack from Trulucks!! yummy! On tuesday he surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. He has been such a trooper trying to balance work and home and has been sweet enough to drive me to price's doctor's appointments this week. Here are some pics from price's first doctor's appt.
Love you bruce!!

She (nurse Ginger) checked me at 12:30 and i was still a 1 (with a little wiggle room). She called they doctor and they were going to send me home with some tylenol with codeine and a sleeping pill.
However, while she was talking to the doctor i had a super strong contraction that ended up breaking my water. when Ginger came back in i mentioned that i had a sharp pain and didn't know if my water broke (i feel like the boy who cried wolf in the "water breaking" department).
She didn't really say anything so i didn't push it. When she came back in again i had moved and felt a lot of "gushing". Bruce checked me and "didn't know what to look for". I had Ginger check and she did the amniotic test and sure enough...ruptured membranes (aka "broken water").
Unfortunately it was tinged green which means it has meconium in it, which means baby Price decided to take his first poo poo while still in my uterus.
Needless to say we are NOT going home now to take a nap. We're here for good. I now have a catheter in my uterus to flush saline in and "thin out the meconium". I also am hooked up to an IV. (i forgot how much i hate that part).
Anyway...that's all for now. I'm sure no one is even awake right now (except Christy in Norway) to read this entry. so by the time you are crawling out of bed on your relaxing saturday morning Price could have made his appearance.
Then bruce and i went and saw a movie ("Rocket Science"...i wouldn't recommend it). During the movie i had contractions every 5 minutes lasting for 30 sec to 1 minute then they got closer after an hour. They were 4 minutes apart...anyway we called the doctor and she said might as well come in and get checked out.
