    He is finally here!!!

    Nicholas Gabriel is finally here!!

    Friday the 13th was my last day of work and my water broke while I was on my lunch break. I got to the hospital about an hour later with just very mild contractions. The doctor's decided to hook me up to an IV and use petocin to get my labor going. It was working well, I got to about 5cm when I requested an epidural. At around 2am they checked me and I was at 8cm but there was a portion of my cervix that was not dilating, they checked me again at 4am then at 6am and I had no changes. They told me that they would give me a few more hours and they would check again. By 9am I had made no progress and they had determined it was because of the position of the baby he was facing my hip instead of face down or sunny side up. At that point they decided I would have to have a c-section. I was really upset about it but I had no choice, plus I had a big cyst on my left ovary that needed to be removed so they did that too. Nicholas was born at 10:03am on Valentine's day, he was 8lbs 5oz and 19 3/4" long. He is in perfect health and absolutley beautiful!! Thank you all for your support throughout my pregnancy and I wish you all the best.

    Thank you all so much. We appreciate it! Nicholas is doing great, he has gained 10 ounces and 3" since he has been home. We are still working on the sleeping at night thing, he has his days and nights mixed up, I thought I was sleep deprived before..... HA, I am like a zombie now! Hopefully he will figure it out sooner or later, until then I am going to start buying stock in New England coffee!!
