Birth Story - He's Finally Here!!

Well ladies, I've made you wait long enough! I went in Sunday evening at 6 p.m. to be started on Cervidil. At the time I was 2-3 cm and 50% effaced. Monday morning they came and got me at 5:30 and took the Cervidil out. I was a good 4 cm and 80% effaced then, so we went ahead and started the pitocin. It made my contractions start out hard and fast, and they were upping the dosage every 1/2 hour. I asked for an epidural when the pain started getting to me and by 11 a.m. I was ready to start pushing. The nurse checked me and thought I was completely dilated, so we did a few "practice pushes" while we were waiting on the doctor. The baby had come down a little and when the doctor came to check me, we found out we weren't making much progress because he was breech. The nurse had thought she was feeling his head when indeed, it was his little butt.

They immediately disconnected the pitocin and rushed me up for an emergency c-section. So, although things didn't go quite as expected, Eric Robert was born at 11:52 on June 11th, weighing in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. He is absolutely adorable and we made it through the entire pregnancy with no signs of PE!! We are both doing well and back at home today resting and enjoying the time together.

Here is a link to a few pictures - hope that works!! ... id=8779990
