My mom had come into town on Sunday (anticipating the big day!) and so she took the last picture of the three of us, before we headed off to my regular OBGYN appointment at 8:30am.
We got there and the doctor checked me (I was 3cm!) and agreed that I had ruptured my bag of water up near the top, which is why it wasn't a huge gush, and that they would still rupture my bag a little lower, once we got to the hospital. She called ahead to let labor and delivery know to expect me, while Rob and I quickly drove next door to McDonald's to eat something before I would be stuck not eating anything!!
When we got to the hospital it was about 9:30am and we were quickly checked into a room, and admitted. They hooked me up to an IV and said I could walk the halls. Here is a pic of me getting ready to walk the halls....I was really happy at the point (in between contractions) :)
We started walking the halls and that lasted all of 10 minutes before my contractions were so awful I needed to return to my room!! LOL! (We did NOT take a picture of that!)
At noon I got my epidural and then I was in heaven...it was by far the easiest and best epidural I've had. I think I was 4cm at that point. Then by about 2pm I was 8cm and by 4pm I was 10!!!!!
Can you tell I was excited??? :)
I pushed for about 10 minutes I guess....it was 2 contractions worth of pushing, so maybe not really 10 minutes. And little Ian was born at 4:15pm!
That was pretty much it! We were discharged from the hospital about 26 hours after he was born! More pics to follow! :)
Sorry it took so long to post all this! I've been in baby bliss for the last week!
