Yes the moment has finally arrived. I have finally given birth to Brady Michael.
I went into labor on Monday night at around 9 PM. I got an epidural at around 5 oclock am after my contractions started to get too painful. The epidural was really a life saver. Pain relief is a beautiful thing. At around 10 AM they decided to break my water to speed up labor even more. At that time i was about 4 cm dilated, so i still had quite a while to go. At exactly 11:49 am Brady's heart stopped beating, so i had to be rushed to the operating room for an emergency c section.
I had never been so scared in my whole life. One moment everything was fine, and the next all the doctors were freaking out, and wheeling me out of a room. The operating room was so very scary. They seemed a bit unprepared and could barely lift my huge ass onto the operating table. They immediately started cutting into my abdomen, which i could almost feel, because all though the epidural had numbed me, i could still feel the pressure of the cuts and the pulling. I was screaming at the top of my lungs and crying because i was so worried about the baby and at the same time i thought i was going to die. Within minutes the anesthesia finally hit me and i drifted off. I remember coming in and out of conscience and asking if my baby was okay.
He was born at 12:04 PM on Tueday, November 13th.
He weighs 7 pounds 15 ounces and is 20 inches long.
He is also the most adorable thing i've ever seen in my life and i'm happy that i brought such a beautiful thing into the world. He's perfect.
I'm recovering slowly from my c section. It's really quite painful to do a lot of things, but i'm coming around day by day. I was kept in the hospital for 3 days and its great to finally be home with the baby.
