Introducing...

Sam_edited-1

Here is the short version of the story for those who care:

Nov. 9 9 am: 38 week check-up; at a 2 1/2; doctor stripped membranes
Nov. 10 2:30 am: I wake up to contractions 8 minutes apart
Nov. 10 4 am: Contractions are 5 minutes apart and I wake Phil up to get ready
Nov. 10 6 am: I call my mom to come stay with Wade so we can head to the hospital
Nov. 10 8:30 am: At a 4 and finally admitted to the hospital; contractions still aren't too bad at this point
Nov. 10 9 am: My doctor breaks my water and contractions immediately get MUCH worse
Nov. 10 somewhere between 9 and 10 am (I am delerious with pain and cannot be held accountable for the time): Get epidural and the doc tries to figure out how much I need; I think I am going to die, literally; 3 doses later he finally gets it right (5 minutes before I start pushing)
Nov. 10 10:39 am: Sam has arrived and is perfectly healthy and I am so relieved!
Nov. 11 around 6 am: that 3 doses of anesthesia finally wear off and I can feel my toes again!

Congratulations on son #2! Sounds like it all went by in a blur. If all these little second cousins ever get together, there will be three within a week of each other in age.

Congrats Jen! He is Perfect!

Whoa, I'm surprised they even let you still get the epidural! My friend that had her baby the day before got to the hospital too late to get one. Congratulations! What a fast labor. How nice. And how nice that you DID still get drugs before the pushing part. : )

Congratulations! I think he has kind of a Jen face. Can't wait to see him next month.

Christina said...

Precious! We are looking forward to seeing him. Feeling full-on contractions is the worst, huh?

Courtney and Tyson Page said...

Ok he is SO CUTE! Such a clear complexion. I'm so glad everything went well! Good luck with adjusting!

Yay for the new arrival! I agree with Steve, I think he does look more like you, Jen.
