Dear Post Pregnancy Body,

Thank You, you did an amazing job creating a life. I will forever look at you in awe. That being said I need to vent! 
Who's body is this. Lets start from the top. My hair. It used to be so cute. I haven't fixed it in a month. It's time... These boobs. Oh my, you provide my son what he needs to grow. I am thankful and don't mean to sound rude but, Holy Crap! If I knew they were gonna get this big I may not have spent 6 grand to get them done. Dear God let Dr. Brothers be right about them "holding up" because they look like something off of national geographic. and nothing holds them up but, a sports bra!  and don't get me started on the raw nipples. I don't know why they call it latching on, It's more like a vice grip. I really hope they get less tender. 
 Now belly, For real. I'm only 27!  I don't think skin should sag quite yet. I am praying because I'm only a month out you will still tighten up! The stretch marks. I hate you, some may wear you proudly and be thankful. I say BOO. I will tan you and when I'm done breast feeding. Microderm and peel you away to the best of my ability. My Butt and thighs. We have some work to do. Your time has come. It's been nice knowing you but don't let the door hit you in the ass. No pun intended. OK I'm done. I do think your awesome. Incredible in fact. I'm just saying I'm a little shell shocked. I mean it's the first time I've seen a naked post pregnancy body not on a celebrity. I was non the wiser till now. I have faith. Once again we will be on the same page, and I'm not saying Bubbie wasn't worth it he was. I would do it again, but maybe not for a lot of years.

  Yours truly,

Birth story... as seen on the nest baby...

Hey Guys !

It's a Boy!!!

Jackson Rush Williamson
6lbs 20 inches, Born June 25,2008 at 2:02pm

The dr had said if  we made it till wed we wouldn't stop my labor again. Jackson must have been listening. I was having pretty intense contractions tues night but couldn't make up my mind if it was just another false alarm. At 6:15am my water broke in bed. (so much for the no ones water ever breaks theory) It was not like in the movies where a gallon of water comes rushing out. I just felt a leak kinda. Woke B up and said "turn on your light I think my water just broke" He jumps out of bed like I had just shot him and looks at me like I'm crazy. The spot was about the size of  a peach on the bed. But I didn't feel like I could stop it. I went to the bathroom and stood up in the shower. smart thinking because that's when the more gushy part happened. Followed by two clots of blood and with the next gush of water was a good amount of blood. Totally freaked me out. But when we called the dr. he said it was totally normal what they call a bloody show and head to the hospital. B had already started the car and put some beach towels on the seat.(glad he did because one it breaks it doesn't stop leaking! ) I took a shower while B informed me 1000 times we needed to hurry for some reason I was really calm and figured it might be my last shower for a while and by God I would have it. Made it to the hospital with no traffic. I figured maybe I'd be dilated to a four I mean come on every ones first baby takes FOREVER. They checked me and go figure I'm a 7 1/2 - 8. The nurse said maybe there wouldn't be time for an epidural and I may not need one since I had gone through the worst of the contraction. I was having back labor and quickly informed her that wasn't happening she better find me an anaesthesiologist and fast! I said please about twenty times, and she rushed him in to do it. So glad she did! My back pains went away instantly and i was able to enjoy the experience. About 40 min later my dr. came in to check me and Jackson was already well within the birth canal. All i could do was feel a little pressure but she said it was go time. She said it would take about an hour hour and a half to have him out. I asked what time it was (like that made any difference) and twenty min. later he was here! It has been the most amazing four days of my life. I feel so blessed to have had such a calm delivery. No tearing or hemi's thank God! and ended up with an amazing and healthy little boy!

why i started this...

Let me start by saying I totally understand half of the stuff I write on here will sound like jibberish to anyone who reads this! I am doing this for a couple of reasons. One Pam made a comment about I better be writing down all the stuff as it happens so she can be better prepared when she goes through pregnancy and yr one. Now saying that this probably won't help at all. I love you Pam. You will do better with out my crazy ramblings in your head. And two because i don't want to forget all this stuff after the fact and mix the sleep deprivation with the dizzying schedule i think I would. Now, Be warned this may be graphic sometimes, and if you now me you know my sense of humor. Sometimes not politically correct, and my grammar, lets face it I can't spell and if i forget to  spell check. Well just forgive me. Ok all that being said here we go. Who knows what will end up on here but I hope you enjoy... The first few maybe some back logging I have written other places but felt should be on here too. Some maybe cheesy and incredibly lame to read but, bear with me I'm hormonal!
