    Matthew's Birth Story....

    I know it's been a few days, but here goes. On Saturday my mom and I went shopping and walked around for a few hours, then we met DH for some Mexican food. I wasn't feeling anything at all and was a little discouraged. Around 9, I got a really good contraction that made me stop in my tracks. It was only that one so I went to bed. I woke up at 2:50am feeling like I may have peed myself so I go clean up, at 2:55am BAM! the worse pain I've felt, or so I thought. I got through it and woke up again at 3:08am with the same pain, then again at 3:16am. I decided it was time to start the timer and I head to the bathroom so I don't distrub DH. I rock and moan through the contractions that are 6 minutes apart now. It's 3:30am and DH tells me it's time to go to the hospital. I wake momma up to let her know and out the door we go. DH is now able to tell me when my contractions are about to happen, and they are 5 minutes apart. We get checked in and it's now 4:30am. I'm now a 6 and I'm begging for an epidural. I'm trying very hard to make it through the contractions and by the time I got my epidural, I was an 8, my water broke and within 4 minutes I'm now a 10. I look at the clock and we are at 7:00am. I start to push and by 7:40 My baby boy is born. He's a champion nurser and is just perfect. 4 hours and 50 minutes of labor and Matthew Douglas is here. To those that went natural the whole way, kudos to you! I unwillingly got to an 8 and it was excurciating for me. I was told by the nurse that my contractions kept coming back to back and wouldn't be on the down slope for a rest. His heartrate started to drop and they put me on oxygen.

    He's so handsome!

    I like his name, it's both distinguished and has a lot of nicknames.

    Can I pinch his cheeks?!

    He's absolutely adorable! If dh didn't already have baby fever and it wasn't contagious, you'd be giving it to me! Quit it!

    Congratulations girl!

    DH: Thank you. ME: For what, babe? DH: For being you.
