Liam is here. *updated with birth story*

Been meaning to update. But, with the long stay in the hospital and just pure exhaustion, I'm running behind.

Liam Paul was born on Feb, 3 at 10:34pm. I'm very happy with how the delivery turned out. I will get back and give a full birth story when I don't feel like I've been hit by a train . Here are some pics:


*birth story*
I had really wanted to have a completely natural labor-- but, my blood pressure decided not to cooperate. I got up on Feb. 3 and took my six year old to school. Then we went to my ob appointment. My blood pressure had been high the appointment before. I had been tested and had no protein in my urine, but my blood pressure was still too high. So it was decided that I would be induced. I called my friend to pick up my oldest from school and went up to labor and delivery. I tested gbs+ so I had to have around of antibiotics before anything could get started. So the nurses encouraged my hubby to get me lunch(it was noon).

Eventually they started the pitocin. My friend who would act as my birth coach arrived shortly after and had me laughing though the contractions. After it had been four hours since the antibiotics were started my water was broken by my wonderful midwife. Shortly after I needed to use the bathroom. Once I was able to get my system cleaned out labor really started rocking. I was checked and found to be 8 cent. The midwife said we could turn off the pitocin and I could get in the shower with the birth chair and start baring down if I wanted to I only had to wait thirty min. My dh and friend were convinced I wouldn't make it. (at this time there were three of in labor and the staff had a bet going on who would go first). I was sitting cross legged on the bed at this point. I was comfortable able to breathe though contractions and could feel DS moving down. The nurse adjusted the bed so that I was sitting on a ledge with my feet braced at the bottom of the bed like I was standing. In this position ds started having decels so the nurse asked me to turn to my side to see if they got better. As I turned the urge to push hit me. I loudly let the nurse know and she loudly told me not to. The rest of the nurses and the midwife rushed in. I was still begging to push. The midwife grabbed my leg threw it over her shoulder and told me to go for it. I had my friend by the hand and she grabbed my other leg. (my dh stood back and rubbed my head) I started pushing a bit out of control. So the midwife told me to feel his head and push with my body. I settled into a nice groove. And pushed my beautiful ds out in six minutes-- he was born Feb 3 at 10:34pm. The midwife had me reach down and catch him and bring him to my chest. I cuddled him and breastfeed him as we waited for my cord to stop pulsing. After the cord was clamped and my dh had cut the cord they took him to weigh him while I got stitched up. (I had a small tear). He weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 20in long. Shortly after this the midwife had to run out cause the second girl was ready to push! I went first winning my midwife the bet.

Even though I ended up induced my labor still went well. I needed no pain meds. And Liam Paul was born healthy with wonderful color(compared to me he looks like he has a tan).


alert right after delivery and with his excited big brother and a couple of days old.
