Now I have a real excuse for not blogging. 5 days ago, someone very special decided to make his grand entrance. And grand it was!
My water broke at Babies R Us on September 8th, at 38 weeks into my pregnancy. I drove myself to the hospital. I wasn't feeling anything but kinda gross. Water breaking is not pleasant. I went from feeling nothing to major contractions in minutes, but hours after the water breaking. I almost gave birth sans epidural. Not by choice, but because it took that long to get one. I was asking for one an hour before I got it. Almost right after I got it, I was ready to push. My doctor decided she had time to go get a tea from downstairs. The nurse had me reach down and deliever my own baby in the doctor's absence.
Mr Jasper Daniel was born at 8:23pm on the 8th. He was 7lbs, 12oz and 21" long. He's amost a pound smaller than his big brother.
