Thank you so much Bobbie for updating for me


Wednesday morning, 2 days before my due date, I woke up with
some painful contractions. I had to breathe through them, but still
wasnt sure if it was the real deal or not. They were 5 minutes apart.
I laid there for about an hour and they were consistent and hurt, so I woke
up Neils and told him "I think I am in labor" he woke right up, but we laid
there a little longer timing them, they were 4 minutes apart now. I decided
to get up and take a shower and brush my teeth, my contractions were about 3
minutes apart now. Labor was going quick. Neils finished loading the van up
with last minute stuff. The boys woke up and we got them dressed, they were
very excited. Ethan was concerned why I was breathing the way I was, lol, but
we told him why and he was fine. We all got in the van and headed to he hospital,
at one point I got so emotional, it was setting in that I was finally going to see
my baby!!! After losing our baby last year, I was waiting for this moment for so
long. I also got realy emotional at the fact that my mom wasnt with me, but I
know she was in spirit. We got to the hospital and they put me in a room to see if
I was in true labor, made me mad, this is my 3rd, i KNOW when I am in labor, lol.
My contractions were really close together some of them back to back to back.
A nurse came in to check me and couldnt find my cervix, it felt like she was gutting me
it hurt so bad! she finally reached my cervix and said she was trying to pull it down
as it was really high and she couldnt tell if I was dilated. WTH?? that hurt!! and
she still couldnt tell how dilated I was. Finally my dr. got there and checked me
and I was 5cm and 80% effaced, so they got me into my big room right away, thank god.
I reached 7cm and was in so much pain, ALOT of back pain, my contractions hurt worse in
my back then my stomache and it was killing me. I decided I have gone natural with no drugs
twice now, I am getting the epidural this time!!!!!!! so I let them know and they brought it
pretty fast. I was scared getting it but after I got it, WOW, I was in heaven, LOL,
it felt soooo good, I was full of smiles. My dr. came in and broke my water. Shortly
after I started feeling realy sick, really really weak. I laid there and couldnt do anything
but lay there with my eyes closed. then an alarm in my room started going off, I was so weak
I didnt even care what it was. My sister looked and my blood pressure was really low, 70 something
over 46. The nurses came in and I dont remember much. they lowered my head I think and made
me lay on my left side. I honestly canot remember much until my doctor came in and I was feeling
Corbin getting lower, my dr. checked me and I was 10cm and ready to push.
My hubby and sister had to help hold me up and hold my legs up, lol.
Now pushing with the epidural was crazy, LOL, I could feel pressure, but I could not feel any pain
and I couldnt feel me pushing, so I asked the dr. if I was pushing, LOL. anyway, I pushed through 1 contraction,
and Corbin was born while I pushed through the 2nd contraction at 8:13AM. fast! and he was HUGE, right when I
saw his head I commented on how chubby he was, then swoopd him up in my arms I was in heaven.
I almost bawled, you just can never explain that miraculous feeling!! He was perfectly healthy
My dr. gave me pitocin and rubbed my belly vigorously so I wouldnt hemorrhage like I did last time.

That is basically it.

Corbin is almost 2 lbs bigger than his big brothers weighing 8lbs 9.5ozs! 20 3/4 inches long, and his head
was 14 1/4inches around. I am glad I had the epidural for pushing his chunky butt out, LOL. Labor was 6hrs from start
to finish.

I swear he broke my tail bone though, it hurts sooooo bad, I can barely move and when I do it seriously takes
my breathe away. and vicodin and ibuprofen barely touch the pain They said it could be cracked and if it
keeps up to call my dr. back for them to know for sure.

We are home and I am so so happy and blessed, I feel complete and so in love.

In labor, feeling like I was dying because of the low blod pressure:



Hes HERE


















After his firsth bath





Going home



So there ya go, I have TONS more pictures of course, LOL.

Thanks for all the congrats !

Woohoo!! Congrats on your little chunky man!! He is absolutely perfect! I am glad that you had a great delivery and hope you heal quickly. Sorry about the tailbone part...I had a cyst on my tailbone once and it really is painful to move, sit, even lay down. I can only imagine how much worse after giving birth!!! Sounds like they should have sent you home with some morphine..hehe

He is so cute!! Thanks for sharing the story and pics. I can't wait to see more and watch him get bigger!

I seriously think that is the first post that I cried the whole way through!!!!

I am just SOOOOOOO happy for you and Neils, Heather!

You guys are such wonderful people and God picked great parents for little Corbin...(well I guess he is offically BIG Corbin now... ) He is absolutely PERFECT Heather!!!

I'm so happy everything went smoothly and epidurals are a WONDERFUL thing! I've had labor both ways and I can at least remember most of Keegan's birth (with the epi)!!

Welcome to JM Corbin!!!!
