Cliff Note Version:
Woke up at 4:30 a.m. Thought I was having tummy cramps. I wasn't having tummy cramps. Went to hospital at 6'ish and he was having decels, so they kept me. I was at 4cm 90% at that point.
Got a room around 7:30 a.m. and was still at 4cm. My contractions had no pause between them. Not fun. Had my epidural at 8:20 a.m. and was at 9 1/2 cm and 100 % within 45 minutes! Then I stalled, lol. Started pushing at 10:59 a.m. and he was born at 1:25 p.m. (yes, that's almost 2 1/2 hours. Ouch.)
7 lbs 14 oz, 19 1/2 inches Everyone is doing well (I feel like I've been hit by a truck, but no pain no gain, right?). He is doing really well with breastfeeding, which I'm THRILLED about. AM's isn't sure what to think yet, but I expect he'll warm up to the idea.
That's all for now. Happy birthday little man!
