May 1 2010

well the rumor is true our son is here. He made the final decision about 11:30 on Saturday. I was at work waiting for my next client to come. Just sitting in the break room talking with some of the girls with i started to get this pounding headache next think i felt this pop a then a contraction that came on strong. i got up to go to the bathroom and felt a little leakage... took another step and a big gush came out and i knew i didnt pee my pants:) I told my girlfriend to call my husband and that my water broke and she said " are u sure u didnt just pee ur pants? oh ya I i knew"... long story short we got to the hospital at 12 got checked and was dilated 1cm at about 1:30. then it became a 2 at 2:30 then at 440 i was a 8 and 5 30 i was a 10!!! SCARY its baby time... My doc has me sit and rest which is called rest and descend for up to an hour but i was so low and feeling so much pressure(even though i had a epidural) that i only rested for 40 minutes.... the doc came in and i started pushing... i pushed for about 15 or so minutes and Kingston just wasnt coming out... my doc said i am just to tight and small and would need to be cut... so unfortunately I did, however within 2 more pushes my little man was here... he came out with a strong set of lungs:) He weighed 6lbs 7 oz and 20 inches long.... i was almost all baby!!!(i knew it) he was born at 6:24 and the most beautiful thing we have ever seen... He is a spitting image of Dave with one dimple like me:) we are so in love and feel incredibly blessed!!! We have an angel in our home and currently in my arms!! here are some pics of our special day

  6. Congratulations momma!!! I'm so excited for your cute little family. He's so adorable! By the way, the same thing happened to me the first time around with having to have an episiotamy ( I hope I spelled that right). The second time though all the docs said I'd stretch much better and I did, I didn't need a single stitch. So, there's something to look forward to. Congrat again!!
