Tayvin Kai

Tayvin Kai born 8/3/08 @ 9:41 am.
9lb 7oz 19.5 inches long..

So last nite I woke up having cramps, thinking it was just the mexican dinner I ate I just used the bathroom, having major poops... But the cramps stayed.. I did not wake DH just let him and DS sleep... Called my Aunt to come over and help me time cramps.. Low and behold they were actually contractions 2-3 mins apart... Around 3 I woke DH up this was after walking around our block once. I told him it was time to take DS to Nanas, and call the midwife. I talk to the oncall MW (gave birth in a hospital) she said to ride it out about 2 more hours. About maybe 15 mins after talking to her, I was like hell no cant wait gotta go now! I was having such severe contractions, I was shaking.. I knew that I was that way with DS when I was 6cm dilated... So DH and I headed to hospital 45 mins away.. Got there, and I was barely able to talk/walk/move... They kept asking if my water had broke, NOPE, no mucus either. So the ER was not that concerned, figured it was just early labor.. Get up to L&D, the midwife gets there, I was 6cm dilated LOL.. By this time, I had given up on doing complete natural birth.. Said PLEASE give me a epidural though I was scared it would be the way with DS, and I would not be able to feel anything.. The MD came in and gave me the epi, OMG he was awesome, just the right amount, and in the right place.. I was in heaven and could still feel the pressure and tension of the contractions... And some pain, but it was bearable... I labored and flipped from side to side for a while.. Then MW decided to check me again.. At this point, I told her I felt like I could feel the contractions coming harder, and the epidural was not doing much for it anymore... Though it was still working.. She checked smiles and says its time.. The nurses where scrambling to get things in order... So I started to push, and actually could feel myself push!!! It was awesome.. Had the mirror set up, and my aunt video taping, and my sister on one side.. DH was at the bottom helping midwife, he was catching the baby... I went through 3 contractions, and pushed him out!!! It was soo neat, cause we did not know what we were having, and DH got to say "Its a boy"

He is huge, way bigger then what DS was.. Whats funny is that I only gained 19lbs the whole PG, and I just lost a good 14 lbs of that! LOL... He is nursing well, sleeping alot... Not really opened his eyes yet.. I have not given flack about not circing, no vaxs or anything thankfully... He wont be getting a bath by these guys either we will give him a bath later I hope to leave tomorrow evening.. I miss my other DS already... I cant wait to see him and show him his new baby brother!!

Here are a few pics..
