Best Gift Evah!

My bloggie friend April over at dot dot dot tagged all of her mama readers on this one. I decided to do it since this basically is Little Red's baby book and I'm afraid if any more years go by, I'll forget the answers.

My Baby





1. WAS YOUR FIRST PREGNANCY PLANNED? Yes, but we were certain it would take a while. I was preggers within 2 weeks of deciding we were ready.

7. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST? Wes- immediatley. Then, we told my family on my Mom's 50th Birthday.

8. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX? Yes. I was so excited to find out he is a boy. I am from a family full of girls and Mr. Sass had a daughter already. We told our families on Christmas Day. Are you seeing a trend here?

9. DUE DATE? May 24, 2006- I'm pretty sure it was off, though.

14. DID YOU WISH YOU HAD THE OPPOSITE SEX OF WHAT YOU WERE GETTING? Nope- See my response to # 8

15. HOW MANY POUNDS DID YOU GAIN THROUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY? 65 pounds total- I gained 40 pounds before being put on hospital bed rest and put on an iv 24/7 for 3 days. I was so swollen it was ridiculous.

17. DID YOU ALREADY HAVE A NAME PICKED OUT? Yes & we stuck with it.

20. HOW MANY HOURS WERE YOU IN LABOR? All day long, before they decided to do a c-section. About 10 hours

24. WAS IT NATURAL OR C-SECTION? C-Section
