Little Christian Edward was born Saturday May 7th at 8:56pm weighing in at 6lbs 12oz and 19" long. All members of the family are happy and healthy. They started with Cervadil on Friday night to which my body replied, "Ain't happenin'". LOL Then I got two doses of citatek the next day and that kick started labor. My body took off and no need for pitocin, it was GREAT! Then, I got to experience my water breaking on it's own for the first time, I know that may sound weird to some and I like to crochet but don't like the hook turned on the owner! I asked for the shot of nubain and realized the shot was wearing off quickly, so I called in the Epi guy. Anesthesiology got there, put in the epi, and when he left, the door had not even shut when my doctor and his resident walked in. They checked me and said, are you ready to push? I laughed and was like, but I'm not fully numb yet! lol SOoooo... in a short amount of time, I had 5 contractions and he was out without problem. My last BP before I left the hospital, 108/62 and that was two days off meds! YIPPEEEEE
Now, HELP!?!?!?!?!? How do I get along during the day with an 18 month old, a 4 day old and get a hubby off to work and a daughter off to school seeing there are now 5 of us. WOW .. Now the fun begins.
Thank you all for the love and help to get through this pregnancy. Pray works! Seems like I've been preggo forever but that's only because I went further than I had ever expected. Gotta run, am needed in the next room but thought I would update!
