Talking I got to be in the Delovery room today!!!!1 :)

I had the BEST day today!!! My cousin went into labor this morning, and she called and asked if I would stay in the delivery room and give her some support, of course I said YES I was soooooo happy (and shocked!) that she asked!

She went into labor at 10:00 am, and I got the the hospital at 11:00, she was in alot of pain, and begging for an epi, but I helpped her through the pains, I did massage and counter pressure, and I encouraged her and held her hand and huged her when she was crying. The nurse checked her at 12:00 and she was 6cm, then, all of a sudden, she had the urge to push, the doctor was nowhere close to the hospital, and the nurses were yelling at her to stop, but she couldn't, she went fro 6cm to fully in less that 20min, and at 12:50 little Alexis was born she is 5.4lbs and 17 inches long, she is sooo tiny, but perfect, she came out screaming!

I got to see the whole thing, I was bawling like a baby, and so, so, so happy that she let me be a part of it, it was awsome!!!

baby and mommy are both doing great, nursing is going well and they get to go home tomorrow

Here is a pic!
