This morning at 1:45, I woke up with pretty intense contractions. I waited until they were regular and decided to go to the hospital at 4 after I had a gush of fluid. When I arrived, I was 4cm. An hour later, I was 6-7 cm. By 7:15, the anesthesiologist came in to give me the epidural. I was 8-9 cm. I got it, but lucky me... it didn't work! Addison Paige was born at 8:20 am weighing 6 lb 15 oz and 19 inches long. I was 40+3. It hurt a lot, but it was worth it! She is beautiful!
