Little miss sure did give us every clue that she was coming early. Seems like things were progressing well until I got super sick one night. Possible food poisoning. Yea, it was terrible. SO we were set to induce June 21. I was induced with B but was in labor when I went in. So I was all for it. Plus, my doctor is super amazing and she wanted to make sure she was the one who would deliver. I definitely wanted her to be there.
So here we go. Up at 4 am. I had to call the hospital by 4:30 am to make sure they had room for me at 5 am.
Sure enough! They are not busy at all. We make our way to the hospital and wouldn't ya know... I'm in active labor. I had been hurting a little bit that morning and had a good feeling we were getting somewhere. We finally got all checked in and settled and things start rolling about 6 am. We jammed out to some praise and worship to help calm the nerves. Texted everyone how things were going. Tried to relax. Things were getting closer. My amazing Dr. came in and broke my water around 8 am. "Do you want to go ahead and get your epidural? You bet your Dr. Stethoscope I do! Things went fast with B. I had a feeling things would be faster with sister. BOY WAS I RIGHT. As soon as she broke my water the race was on. My epidural went perfectly. The only problem I had was my right side didn't want to numb up. That's ok I can deal with a semi-numb side. Nurse laid me back. Checked me out. Here we go! Lights come down, tools wheel in, Dr on the way.
Family stuck in floods. What are the odds?! They finally make it. Push. "Aww look at that hair. She does have a little bit of hair!" Push Push. "If you need to take a break for a minute you can." NO mam. Lets do this. Push Push Push. SHE"S HERE! "Great job momma! You made this look easy!"
At 9:01 am she was earthside. All 7lbs 10oz 20.5 inches of her.
Sister may have given me trouble during this pregnancy, but she redeemed herself in delivery. If all deliveries were like that I would probably have 15 kids.
Sister did have a little bit of a hard time staying warm. We finally got her skin to skin with a warmer over both of us. She snuggled right in and warmed right up.
Did I mention June 21 was Fathers day? Yea, Happy Fathers Day Husband. Best. Gift. Ever.
