Funny thing is, I basically started having contractions right before they started hooking me up to the IV's and pitocin. At 6:15 I was 3-4cm dilated and 80% thinned out. An hour later my water broke and my contractions were already about 3 minutes apart. 8:30AM they finished giving me my epidural. Things were progressing so quickly, the nurse kept saying, "you're a house of fire! you're a house of fire!"
The Dr came in and said I was between 8-9cm and that she was going to run to the office (across the street) real quick and come right back (it'll take two minutes she said). Little did she know that's about all it would take and I'd be ready to push! She got back to the room, out of breath from running back, and it was baby time! I had 3-4 sets of pushes and our beautiful baby boy arrived at 9:09AM. I am shocked at how quickly and smoothly my labor went (about 3 hours start to finish) Don't get me wrong, the contractions were horrible, my head was spinning, and the epidural didn't even have time to take full affect, but overall, it went great! I was able to have an hour of skin to skin contact, which was amazing, and something I didn't get to experience with Adeline.
Safe and sound in Daddy's arms!
We were all curious how Adeline would do with her new baby brother, but all in all she seemed fairly interested and was very sweet with him.
Here are a few pictures of our new addition Simon Logan!
He will already be one week old tomorrow, I can't believe it. Do you have a post about your labor and delivery? Be sure to leave a comment below, I love reading them. Every story is truly special and unique. Have a wonderful Tuesday! :)
