Baby Josie is here!!!

First famiy photo!



The birth went fabulous! We got to the hospital to be induced at 6 am on August 30th (one day before my due date). I had been 2 cm dilated and thinned for a couple of weeks. I had also been having contractions all week. That morning was no exception. I was having contractions already and as they got us back in our room and were taking some blood, my contractions got stronger. We got my IV(which was kinna rough) and at 7 Dr. Peeler came in and broke my water before he headed off to do some surgeries. He checked me and i was still 2cm like the weeks before. At about 7:15 a lady came in to start me on Pitocin. I had about 2 contractions and i decided to get an epidural before i got in too much pain. The first time we tried something wasnt right so we had to start over. A little painful but really not bad at all. So the im all set up and i start feeling kind of nauseus. The nurse comes in with some meds for the nausea and she mentions that sometimes feeling sick means you are dilating quickly. So she checks me at about 8:30 and im now 8cm!! Woo hoo! so then she starts talking about how we have to wait til closer to when Dr. Peeler can get back to push and all that. So around 9:30 she says ok we are gonna start pushing at 10. And i said oh well am i 10cm yet? She was like oh yeah girl your cervix is gone! At this point everything had been ridiculously easy. Almost no pain at all! Andy and i were all smiles and excited and lovey dovey at the thought of our first baby being born. So we start pushing around 10 and we push and relax and push and take breaks. Nothing hurt at all. It was a little tiring but mostly just fun and exciting. So around 10:30 my mom came to join in (since everything was going so easy) and the nurse was having me wait until the Dr got back to push any more. Dr. Peeler came in at about 10:40 and we started pushing again. Baby Josie was born at 10:55 am. The whole thing was about 4 hours. It was the best experience i could have ever asked for. Andy and i felt sooo blessed. Josie came out perfectly pink and screaming. She was very loud and very alert (2 good things). She scored a 9.9 on the Apgar score (no one gets a 10). She was perfect and very cute right from the start. It was a wonderful day! I highly recomend giving birth at Methodist Germantown and Dr. Peeler was a fabulous doctor. All the nurses were soooo sweet. LOVED IT!
