Born April 2

20 in long The Story: Early Friday morning around 2 am my water broke-or more truthfully-it slowly started to leak. Having had my water break with my first two-and this one being significantly more subtle-I wasn't sure myself if I was in labor-especially since by noon (10 hours later) I wasn't feeling any contractions. I called my Dr and he said to go on down to Labor and Delivery at the Hospital just to make sure. So we got to the hospital at 12:30ish and soon find out that yep-my water had broken and I was taken away to get hooked up to some Pitocin. 2 hours later finally started to feel some contractions and by 4 pm they were increasing. By 7:30 I decided to get my epidural-which didn't work right and the anesthesiologist after several attempts to get it to work better put in another one around 9:15. 9:45 finally feel my epidural kick in-but guess what ?? 15 minutes later time to push. 10:15 Joe caught our little or shall I say big bundle of boyness. 2 weeks early and this lad weighed in at 1 oz shy of 9 lbs. Good thing he decided to come when he did right??
