Well we have our little guy. These pictures are ones my sister Amy took when she came up to the hospital to see him the day he was born. There are others I will put on here that my mom took but the computer won't let me upload them at the time. So I went in at 10:00 at night on Saturday to be induced. They put this tablet in me to help ripen the cervix and sometime around 1:00 am contractions started as a result. I spent the rest of the night and the next morning with bad back labor. *NOT FUN* Then in the morning I was only a 1 but the doctor broke my water to try and get me to a 2 at least because I wasn't progressing and I was having a lot of pain so they wanted me to be able to get my epidural. An hour later the nurse exaggerated my dialation to a 2 and I finally got my epidural. Front labor had also started along with the back labor by this point because they had started the pitocin. Epidurals are AMAZING!! Unfortunatly shortly after I got the epidural the contractions got stronger and the baby's heartrate dropped with each contraction. The doctor came in and said they were going to watch it over the next 45 minutes and see what happened. Then after the next contraction the doctor and nurses came in and stopped the pitocin and the doctor told me they were not going to wait the 45 minutes. He said they could watch it but the baby was not tolerating the labor and it would be bad for him if they let it go so I ended up with an emergency C-Section. I was really disappointed, sad, and scared (I've always been afraid of surgery which I had never had before). My dad and Jason gave me a blessing and off we went. It wasn't what I had imagined but in the end we got our sweet little baby boy. He was worth every second and we love him so much. He is so sweet, loving, and so darn adorable. My mom is here still with me helping out and I am so (a million times over) grateful for her. Just being here is making it easier. I am exhausted beyond believe, extremely sore, and amazingly happy to have such a beautiful wonderful gift.

Congratulations! I love that name too!

My first labor ended in an emergency c-section too. I was so disappointed, so I tried a VBAC with QQ, but that ended in another c-section. I just need to have c-sections because of my pelvis shape (the babies heads never drop down). I felt guilty for having a c-section with Vance, and it bothered me for awhile. I think there is a certain amount of unnecessary guilt that comes from not having the "perfect" delivery. Try not to dwell on it and enjoy your little man!
