Gage is here!

I was due Nov 3, and Gage Shepherd was born on Nov 7.

I went in for induction and had my water broken and got a low dose of pitocin at 6:30 am. He was born at 9:48 fastest labor.

The contractions got really intense at about 9:40 and I asked for an epidural when the anesthesiologist came in I told my nurse I was going to go to the bathroom on the floor. The anesthesiologist turned around and walked right back out. I had epidurals with my other two so had no idea that what I was feeling was actually my baby crowning. I was standing up at the time and was frozen with pain, DH and the nurse had to force me to get in the bed. The doctor came running in and after about 2 minutes of pushing, and me screaming my head off, our little boy was born. Needless to say it was my first natural birth, which I always wanted anyway, this time I didn't have the time to chicken out. He was 7lbs 15oz and 21 biggest baby and last baby. Our family is complete with these 3. Everyone is doing great at home, it has been an adjustment for my other two but we are muddling through it.
