Jason and I arrived at Brookwood at 5:00pm Tuesday afternoon to begin my induction. At 2:30 in the morning my water broke. When the Dr. came in at 6:30, I was 4 cm dialated. They started the pitocin at 7:00am. I managed the contractions until 9:30 when I asked for an epidural. After that it was smooth sailing!! Our WHOLE FAMILY was with us until 2:00pm, when the nurse said we would begin to push. After everyone left and Jason ate a sandwich, I pushed through 3 contractions and Dr. Barron ran through the door just in time to catch Ella Grace at 2:52. I could not have asked for a better labor experience. Ella is absolutely the most beautiful thing I've ever laid my eyes on!!! I can't believe that she came from us!!
Our smart, sweet, compassionate and funny "big girl".
