Hey everyone. Sorry I haven’t gotten back to you. I figured that posting in the forums would be the quickest way of getting back to everyone. My fiance and I started renting a house so we don’t have the internet anymore so I’m only on every once in a while when we’re at his aunts house…

Yes, we planned on naming the baby Dominick Alejandro but we decided to name him Dominick Richard. My fiance was really close with his pap and his paps name was Paul Richard and everyone called him “Rich” so we decided to give Dominick the middle name after him…

I was induced on Jan 19th at 8:30 am and had him at 7:21 am on Jan 20th,He was 6 lbs, 12 ounces and 1 9in long. He was born with beautiful skin! My fiance is Puerto Rican so it was dark but usually newborns have wrinkly skin or are usually lighter but not him. He was born with dark, soft skin and with a full head of dark brown hair. We thought his eyes were brown but recently realized they’re blue! I’m so happy b/c he looks NOTHING like me. He looks exactly like his dad and now he has something of me… ha ha.

Since they induced me, 2cm dialated felt like 8. LOL. So they gave me the epidural (WHICH DIDNT HURT AT ALL!). From that point on, I didn’t feel ANYTHING.. It was so much fun actually. They also had me on pain med which made me a little loopy and I was naming off random foods that I wanted because I wasn’t allowed to eat for about 24hours. Well, when the doctor was telling me to push, my fiance kept telling me to “do it for the cheesburger!” and I busted out laughing. He tells everyone that. LOL. It took about 20 minutes of pushing for him to pop out. It was amazing that a fully developed BABY was inside of me!

Well, Dominick is 11 days old and he is beautiful and healthy.

My pap-pap died yesterday and today we have to go to the funeral. He really wanted to see the baby but never had the chance b/c the roads were covered with ice and we couldn’t make it up his driveway to let him see the baby and we were planning on taking him this week but its too late…I feel like crap b/c if i maybe would have pushed the issue a little more, he would have gotten to see his great grandpap before he passed…

Well, thats my novel of giving birth lol again, sorry I didn’t get back to any of you.. I hope all is well!!!
