Aiden's arrival was calculated and expected on March 29th, 2005. 

I had arranged with my Dr to have Aiden via C-section 4 weeks prior to his arrival.  We picked the date which would be 1 week prior to the original due date of April 5th, 39 weeks of the normal 40 week gestation.

From the day I found out when the "birthdate" would be, I talked to Aiden daily and asked him to please be patient and not "come out" until it was "time."

He listened.

On 3/29/05, my water broke at about 3:00 am, which was about an hour from when I was originally going to be waking up so I could be at the hospital by 6:30am.

He must have really wanted out cause I heard the loudest "POP" when the water broke!

I went in to active labor by the time I arrived at the hospital and my contractions were 5 minutes apart.  Honestly, I did not feel them.  The only way I knew was Bruce showed me the contractions on the machine I was hooked up to and the Dr's also confirmed them. 

I had to wait until about 11:00am to get my Spinal done.  Apparently there was a few births that took place before me that took precedence.

About 30 minutes before we got started. the Dr asked me if I could "guess" Aiden's birth weight.  He guessed at somewhere around 7 pounds or so, closer to 8 pounds.  My guess?  8 pounds 2 ounces.
The Dr was amazed that I guessed Aiden's weight EXACTLY!  How amazing is that?!?!

Aiden was born at 11:36 am and had the most LOUDEST cry I had ever heard!

Aiden just a few minutes old.  This is right before he got weighed and measured.  Just less than an hour old.  Look at that scrunched up face!
