I felt a pop was my mucus plug letting go since my water didn't break around 4:30pm as I was waking up from a nap. DH scrambled to get the tree down. My parents came around 6 and after giving them final instructions we left. I didn't want to get sent back home because the contractions fizzled out so I made DH stop to get himself some supper at Taco Bell. Then I made him park in the far parking lot instead of the ER. I think he wanted to kill me at that point. I told him that I was probably only 4 cm so we had a lot of time.

We got to labor and delivery and I was 7-8 cm just like he said I was. Oops!


My doctor was in house as she was on call and so she came up and broke my water because I was complete at that point. I wasn't feeling pushy at all so we just waited. His head was still quite high so when I did start pushing it took an hour (according to the nurses, I swear it was like 2-3 hours!)

He has a 15 inch head and had an hand by his face so that's what took him so long to come on down.

And no drugs. Because I was too darn comfortable even when I was complete. Once I felt like pushing it was another story!

So here's a link to a picture

Owen Jeffrey
Jan 2 2009
11:08pm
8 pounds 9 oz
21 inches long
blue eyes
blond hair (not much!)

He looks like his sisters.

Maddie's reaction to being told she has a brother: Oh my wish came true!
Ellysia: I'm so excited! Can we come see him!
Claire: Oh. Can I call him "Boy Pocahontas"?
Sophia - too little to understand.

Michelle: wife to J, mom to M (2001), E (2003), C (2005), S (2007) and O! (2009) And someone new in 2011!

:Congratulations

I was looking at your siggy and found a couple of things interesting. I have a DD who was born 4/13/01, my other DD was born 4/22/04. If I have a girl I'm thinking about naming her Saffiyah and my given name is Lisa

BTW, I couldn't view the pics
