My October Pumpkin is here.

So many people do not know me as I am still a little new here but I thought I'd share this. I went into my 41 week appt on the 4th and they found via ultrasound that my fluid was really low. So they sent me up to L&D to be induced. After talking to my midwife Pam when she arrived we decided to try another method so that hopefully my body would kick into gear. it was this strip of something that they place in you to make you dilate. It needed to be in place for 12 hours. Well after about 10 hours, I asked them to remove it due to the fact I was having multiple contractions at one time. I was 7cm at that time. So in short, I ended up being in labor for 12 1/2 hours total and our baby was born at 3:29 AM Friday October 5th. Phoenix William weighed 8lbs 1oz and was 21 1/2 in long.



Sorry if the image is too big
