Brody is Here <3

I don't post here a lot.... but little man's birth story is too crazy not to share


Left church early at 5:30ish b/c of being uncomfortable and a few contractions. They stopped.... had dinner and played with the kids all night.

About 10:30 contrax were strong and anywhere between 10-15 minutes apart. Went to bed.... hubby fell asleep and they fizzled out to one good one every 25-27 minutes for almost 2 hours.

Took a bath and I called my midwife at 2:20 am b/c they were still strong and getting closer but no pattern. 5 minutes later got JD up and between our room and the kitchen it was intense. My dad came over at 2:35.... we left and made it all of 4 miles down the road before calling 911 at 2:46 am. We literally pulled over and I was kneeling on the ground, leaning on the passenger seat just stuck in that position.

At 2:48 a police officer got there.... who told me he was a medic too and then froze...

Fire rescue got there soon after and was great, though they still thought we would just make it. My husband knew better.... seriously whipped my pants off, watched my water break and saw the head before an EMT took over. He is my hero ... cool, calm and collected and would have delivered his son no problem!

All is well.... he's healthy, happy and nursing well and the kids all adore him.♥


Turns out this is the very first baby our fire department (Volunteer in a small town) has ever delivered... so we're a bit of a big deal here. In the paper... on the news. It will be quite the tale to tell when he's older

Brody Daniel Edward.... Daniel is my hubby's middle name... Edward was my little brother's middle name.

He was 7 lbs, 3 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

Was down to 6,12 when we left the hospital but he's already back up to 7,5.... yippee super milk
