Hi everyone! I have been so crazy with getting the breast feeding going that I haven't gotten a chance to tell everyone my news. At 37and 4, my water broke mid-morning and I started having contractions soon after. I was admitted to l&d around 1 pm and labored pretty hard later in the afternoon. By about 7:30 pm, the doctor felt I was getting worn out, so they brought in the vacuum. Three pushes later and I had my boy. He is perfect!! I did not get an epidural because I had taken my lovenox before everything started. It was just fine without it anyway. PE didn't ever surface and I feel great. I had awesome doctors this time and I never once felt things were not going well. I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful child.
