Baby Swartout!

coming to our home, summer 2010

Baby is Here! July 7, 2010

Filed under: baby pics,updates — jen @ 12:23 pm

Wednesday 6/30 was my last day at work.  I was looking forward to at least a few days off to run a few errands, finish a few projects, and do a little cleaning around the house… we went to bed around 10/1030 … at 12:30 I was awake and pretty certain my water had broken and was having mild contractions.  I waited a little while and then woke Tim and called the Dr.  Since we still hadn’t completely packed our bags it took us about an hour to get ready…

We got to the hospital around 2:45.  Little did we know we had a long day in store — we spent the entirety of Thursday in the hospital.

Evelyn Donna Swartout was born Friday 7/2/10 at 1:06 a.m.  She weighed 7 pounds, 6 oz and measured 20.5″

We were exhausted, and instantly in love!

For those of you who are interested, Evie’s birth was natural (only a low dose of Pitocin after 17 hours of labor to get things moving) and I delivered her without any pain meds.  If you’re interested in doing the same I’d recommend you check out the following:

The nurses at the hospital where I delivered (Emerson) were awesome, as was my midwife, Sherri (AFA OBGYN).


Ultrasound Pictures! February 13, 2010

Filed under: baby pics — jen @ 6:54 pm

We had our 18 week ultrasound on Thursday 2/4.  We are not finding out the baby’s sex.  It was cool to see hands, feet, and even the baby’s face!  Here are a few pics – click the thumbnail to see the better/full-size view.  On the left is the baby’s profile (head & chest) and you can see it’s fingertips near it’s mouth.  On the right, you can see the baby sucking his or her thumb!
