Avyn Marie

Mar 30, 2010 - 2 comments

Avyn was born on 3/30 at 7:46am.  My water broke the 29th a little after 9pm, only minutes before the official full moon!  We cruised on over to the hospital since we were an hour away.  Even with contractions only 3 minutes apart on the drive, I was still only 1-2cm, high and firm, so I started walking.  Around 2 am, I was checked again and only 3 cm, so I decided I just couldn't do it naturally this time and opted for the epidural.  Kind of a bummer after 2 natural births, but I was so tired and labor is so much more intense after the water breaks!  But, the epidural was great!  Not like my first one at all.  I could still feel my toes and contractions and when to push, just no pain!  So I slept for a few hours and a little after 7 I was complete.  We waited for the midwife and labored her down a little, she didn't want me pushing to hard because of lovely varicosities down there.  So we started pushing about 7:40 and she was here at 7:46!  Avyn Marie was 8lbs 6oz, 21.75 inches!  SO glad to be done with this!
