My little one is here at 38+3 weeks
« on: February 21, 2012 at 10:44 PM »
;DOn Friday, I delivered my sweet baby boy- Dawson A.J.  He was 6.15 lbs and 19in. ;D
Everything happened so quickly with the entire labor and birth taking right about 3 hours; I'm still reeling from it. 
7:00- water broke
8:15- arrived/checked in at hospital - dilated to 4 and 100%effaced.  (I had been staying steady at 1-2 dilated 80% effaced)  My nurse called for an epidural, but was told no until my labs came back.
8:45ish- rechecked- dilated to 7 - my nurse called again for my epidural
9:15ish- finally got my epidural- I was checked right after and was dilated to 10
9:25ish- began pushing
9:40- My surprise baby arrived (we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl)
He is our perfect little angle!!!  Our 3 year old is doing really well with him.  He gives him kisses and says he loves his brother and then ignores him for awhile   ;) 
It has been quite an emotional roller coaster with everything that has been going on within our family, but hopefully things will settle down soon and we can sit back and enjoy our new addition.
    *thank you for the condolences I've already received about my mother-in-law*
