IT'S A boy!

That's right we're having a baby boy! The name will be Dealey James Maples and we are so freaking excited! However the day was mixed with a little rough news. After finding out we're having a boy the doctor took a look at my cervic and said that it was short meaning that there was a 90% chance I would deliver in the next month (not a good thing at all) so the solution was that I have surgery and have my cervic stitched closed giving us a 75% chance of carrying to full term. So I had surgery today about 5:30ish and Matt and I will be spending tonight at the hospital. Unless something crazy happens I should be home by tomorrow afternoon sometime. I'm on bed rest for the next week and after a check up next week, that will be updated. More than likely the dr. believes I'll be on bed rest for a while. We'll keep the blog updated with the latest news. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared and emotionally upset but I am hopeful and do believe the little Dealey will hold on tight and we will not be greeting him to the world any time soon! It was great to hear that he was happy and healthy in there and has no idea anything is going on right now. He weighed in at 14 oz. and everything measured perfect, he had the the cutest profile! We love you guys and know that many of you are thinking of us and we appreciate and feel the love....
