After being on the epi for 6 hours, I had no progression. While both of us were still healthy, we did a c-section. The reason the 9 did not turn to 10 is because his little bitty head could not fit through my little bitty tiny pelvis. My body did everything it could. There is so much to process about the experience. But, we were sent home after 48 hours and both of us are doing amazing!!

He is so amazing!!

A pic will come. My phone AND computer are being uncooperative.
Delighted to hear that he's here safely and that you are both healthy and happy! Welcome to the world Nathaniel Parker! Can't wait to see pictures!

And congrats to you too, Ashley, Amelia is beautiful!
