It has been a very busy few weeks for us. We have been in the hospital twice and had two showers. Ethan decided to make an early appearance! He arrived 3 1/2 weeks early! Our due date was November 16, and he arrived October 22.
Two weeks before Ethan arrived, we spent Friday night in the hospital because Mommy's blood pressure was elevated and Ethan's heart rate dropped a couple of times while being monitored. An ultrasound revealed that my amniotic fluid level was low, so we stayed the night and received IV fluids. Everything checked out fine, and we got to go home Saturday night.
The only bad thing about staying the night in the hospital was that our first shower was scheduled for that Saturday afternoon! Thankfully, we were able to have it Sunday afternoon! Here are a few pictures from the event.

Can't believe how swollen I was!
