Connor Lee is finally here!

After 40 hrs of grueling pain ( I had to be induced) he finally arrived just before midnight on 4/19. 8 lbs 4.5 oz 21 inches. Turns out I had a really big placenta, dr thinks it was big enough for twins, that's why I was measuring so large. Took 30 hrs to get me far enough to break my water, after that it was no time till I went from 3cm to 9 cm. then I spent 5 more hours trying to get that last cm all the while having a misplaced epi that never worked and getting pitocin. It tookeveryounce of strength to make it because that whole 5 hrs I felt I needed to push but was told no so that was excruciating. Right as I thought I couldn't take anymore I was ready to give in and actually asked the dr about a c section. She turned around and said "you are ready to push now, a c section will just be harder. You are pushing this baby out!" 13 mins later he was born!! At the end of it all I felt like superwoman after seeing what I accomplished without all the meds. With my daughter the epidural number me from the waist down and I felt nothing. This time I felt every sensation and at the end, I don't think I would want it any other way.
