Jack Patrick Woods

6 lbs 10 oz, 19 inches long. Beautiful baby boy!! I have the most amazing wife in the world!

9 and a half

We're on the home stretch! Gina is very scared, so please pray for us.

7 centimeters!

Mama Woods is rubbing G's feet. All the goodies are laid out for delivery. Hopefully we will meet jack soon!!

Texas roll baby!

Gina had six back to back contractions and jack was not a fan. So the nurse put g on o2 and stopped the pitosin for 30 minutes. We are now back on the pitosin and the o2 is helping g rest. We are also in the "Texas Roll" to help get jack to drop better. I love my wife and all that she is doing to give us a family!! We are on 20 hours since we got the ball rolling. 5 centimeters and counting!

Mmmm breakfast

Hospital food is the best! Zitz, Jimmie and sven know what I'm talkin about! G is at 4 centimeters and counting...

Sunrise in Sacramento

Still no jack... Gina is doing great and I am so proud of her. She was in quite a bit of pain last night, so she did get an epideral and she is on a pitosin drip. Thank God for the epideral! G was able to get a little sleep. She even had a chance to speak with Nicole while she was up feeding Siena.
Love to you all and please pray for this to be a great day for G and jackaroo.

Snacks for a long night

Things are going really well. Gina has had two servings of miso (sp?)... Not the soup. She is having contractions, and depending on how that goes she will either get another dose at 10PM or go onto the pitosin. Should be a quiet night and we may see jack tomorrow sometime.
Thanks for all the love and support!

Gina on her first walk

Gina sporting the latest in hospital fashion, the double gown. Great for stopping the draft, not for the slimming look.
Keep walking, keep walking...

A little Foo time

Here is g talking to her neighbor Foo (Erin). We love all of our friends so much! Thanks for all the love and support!

Visit from the doctor

Here is G with a surprise visit from Dr Maagdenberg, who had just delivered another baby.

My beautiful wife!

Here is G talking to Stacy on the phone. She is such the trooper! They poked her 3 times before the IV worked. So much tougher than I am!!

Twas the night before!

Jack was due June 18th - After many days, the doctor and the Woods decided to induce the 11th/12th day. We go in tomorrow - June 29th at noon. When will he come??? Will it be tomorrow? Will it be Saturday? Gina feels great! Other than swelling and heart burn that still continue, she feels awesome. She has finally been sleeping better! She is anxious about tomorrow but looks forward to the outcome . . .

Gina - doing a final check of her hospital bag.

Yay! All Done!

Look at that belly

Big Brother is Jealous
