Mother's Day Mania -- Day 2

Today's the topic for Mother's Day Mania is birth stories.


Tom-Tom's birth was VERY unexciting!! I take that back his BIRTH was exciting, but the labor part of it wasn't. I will tell my story anyway, though!

**This is copied from my pregnancy journal (The day after I had him)**

12/21/2007 - Baby Thomas is here! Finally after being 5 days past due.

I got to the hospital a little after 7am. We got stuck in traffic on the way here. They broke my water at 9am after 3 tries and put me on a pit drip. At 10:30am I was getting my epidural. It didn't work the first time it only went down my right side. So they had to come in and re-do it at 3 something. At 4pm I was 5cm. At 5pm I was between 6-7cm. The doctor wasn't ready when he was though! I had to push untiil he crowned and then had to wait for the doctor to get into my room before he could be delivered. He was born at 5:56pm. 7lbs. 9oz. With chipmunk cheeks! He looks just like his daddy.

See.. I told ya! Not much to it! I did forget to mention that the hospital must have loved me so much that they gave me an anesthesiologist in training!! OMG did she hurt me!! I was sitting there and she was rooting around in my spine then all of a sudden I feel this SHARP pain go up my spinal column. I know your're not supposed to move during an epidural because it can paralize you, but it was a reaction that I couldn't control. Kinda like when you touch a hot stove and you automatically jerk your hand back. That's what I did, but with my back!! Sounds lovely doesn't it!! It didn't cause any damage. *wipes brow* Thank God she didn't come in and do my second one!!

Proud Parents!

Dada and his little baby!! :-D
