Finley Michael Bergner

Finley surprised us by not waiting for his scheduled arrival!  Wednesday morning, I woke up at about 3AM.  I was having contractions and my bed was damp but not soaking.  I got up and sat in the Living Room, the contractions kept coming but not regular and not life stopping as they warned me they would be.  Bryan and I went to the hospital last week when I thought I might be in labor, I was not and they gave me some other things to look for...regular contractions that make me lose my breath.  These were definitely stronger but I still wasn't sure.  I talked to a half asleep Bryan and he asked if I wet the bed...he then recommended calling Kaiser.  I called and they encoraged me to come in.  I then called my parents to stay with Zander, woke Bryan up, and we were ready! 

Zander woke up while Bryan was in the shower, grabbed his shoes and was ready to go outside to play!  I explained it was only 4AM and dark but it didn't matter, he had his shoes and hat and was ready to go.  Grandma and Grandpa were going to have a LONG day!

When we arrived, the nurse did not think I was in labor but did the test anyway.  She came back and said my water had indeed broke and I was being admitted.  Bryan was just happy they had a Keurig!  At 9AM I was still not having regular contractions and they began the petocin.  It went fast after that and Finley was born at 12:11 PM!

He was 9 lbs, 9 ounces and 21 inches long and almost 2 weeks early!  Bryan said Zander was now the runt but Finley made sure to come so that Zander and Finley were both born on the 13th!  Zander came at 11 seconds after midnight and Finley came at 11 minutes after noon.
