Grant was born at 12:54p today, at 8lb 4oz!
I was woken up by contractions around 4am and started timing. They were ranging 6-10min apart for about 2 hours, then they started getting more painful. I woke H up around 6 and at 7 I quickly went to 2.5-3.5 minutes apart.
Headed to the hospital around 9 when my contractions were lasting about a minute. Checked in at 4 cm, labored and cursed until I got my epi at 6-7cm, then got a brief reprieve. My contractions were pretty back to back and after maybe 30 min I started feeling painful pressure with each. Really painful. Next time the doc came in I was at 10 and ready to go! Pushed for a whopping 5 min and he was out! Phew!!
