Mason Jeffery arrived!

Mason Jeffery arrived at 3:15 pm on March 26th, 2012 - he weighed 7lbs 2oz and was 20 inches long

Here's his birth story:

I was to be induced Monday morning at 8am so we arrived at the hospital about 7:50. My OB came in, checked me and told me I was a "stretchy 3" and still only 50% effaced. She put in a cervical "pill" that was supposed to soften my cervix and headed out. I walked for quite a bit and started feeling contractions every 5 minutes just about immediately after I started walking. Around 12:30pm doctor came back in and manually broke my water. I was a "stretchy 4" then. Did some laboring and then asked for an epidural (the contractions were getting stronger by then) Epidural was administered however, it wasn't working well at all. One half was numb but the other half of my body was uneffected. Around 2:30 the nurse checked me (only at 5) and paged for the anesthesiologist to come check and see why it was only half working... and she decided to cath me because I had to go to the bathroom.

2:55 nurse comes in to check with me about the catheter (because of my severe latex allergy) and I told her it didn't matter; I had to push. She seemed skeptical but checked and sure enough Mason was already heading out! Doctor made it in about 3:05 and by 3:15 he was out!

My mother missed the birth because, although she was in the hospital, she had run down to talk to my cousin who worked there and we couldn't get reception to call her and tell her to come back up! (we had to call her cell because she didn't tell anyone where she was going - just left on a phone call)

Nolan is doing "okay" with the new baby - he is acting up and behavior is atrocious but truly I expected it so it's tolerable:
