We were home from church for about an hour and thirty minutes. I was sitting on the couch surfing the internet and decided to get up (I don't remember why). Then it happened! I thought, "what the..!?" and ran to the bathroom. Sure enough my water broke! Thank goodness just about 3 days earlier we packed our hospital bag!
So we headed to the hospital and got there around 5 PM. The nurse did some tests, found that my water did break, and admitted me at around 6:30 PM. I ended up getting pitocin since my contractions weren't getting all that strong by themselves. At around 2 AM, I got the epidural because not only did I have regular contraction pain but I had back labor pains as well. There was NO way I was going to do natural childbirth with pain like that (I hadn't planned on it anyway)! I labored for a few more hours and at around 7:30 I started pushing! It was NOT fun because the pressure was so intense the epidural didn't seem to help at all. But almost an hour later, the best thing ever happened! Brandon made his debut! He weighed 6 lbs 8 oz and was 20.5 inches long.
It was such a great feeling to know that he finally arrived! Both Greg and I choked up (well, I flat out cried lol). He's such a beautiful baby boy!
Here are more pictures of our little guy! Can you figure out who he resembles most? We can't tell!
