My little man keegan made his appearance today at 216pm. My water broke Friday night at around 8. I tried my hardest to do it without an epidural but I just couldnt. The contractions were non stop and my back was killing me because I had to be on my sides at all times because minutes after laying on my back the babies heartrate dropped. I caved and got an epidural at 5cm. I didn't have to get any pitocin at all.and I pushed for about an hour. The nurses have him right now so I can sleep cuz I didn't sleep at all during labor or at all after he was born. He was 6lbs 15ounces and 20 inches long and looks just like his daddy
I gave in and let the nurses take him most of the night so we could sleep. I had been up way too long and was drifting off while he was in my arms so I am letting them do their jobs. He was fussy after feedings so that was not helping.
