2 am on Thursday May 14, 2015:
Left the house with water having broken earlier (about 7 pm) and having had only a contraction or two. Glad to not have traffic to drive to hospital. (Could take 2.5 hours in prime weekend afternoon traffic!) (6 days past due date)
Sometime between 2:30 am and 6:48 am: a happy(ish) lady with an epidural in the same room T was born in with one of the same nurses 19 months later. Contractions started being about 3-5 min apart in the car and I got to the hospital at 2:30 already at a 5 or 6 cm. Got an epidural around 3:00 since I had done bloodwork the week previously. It worked great except in one spot! So after an hour or two I could feel contractions there, which was unfortunate but probably helped me push. He was born at 6:48 am. Phew! So glad to be not pregnant (or in labor) anymore!
Shortly after 6:48 am: Us with baby B!
B getting cleaned up in the nursery.
The upside of a nighttime labor: no traffic
The downside of a nighttime labor: no sleeping that night for anyone!
Cutie pie face!
With a proud daddy!
First pic as a whole fam!
Someone is happy to have a baby to hold!
All their grandkids! We are so glad Nena and Pappaw were here!
Our silly three munchkins! E wanted to hold him the whole time they were at the hospital. T walked around eating snack sticks. Typical.
Resting in his bed with the blanket all three kids used and a burp cloth made by Aunt Kathy.
Coming h0me the next day!
