Thank you Grace for sharing the news with everyone!

So Jerry decided that Thanksgiving day shopping was enough to get him out! I even went to a smaller store in hopes of not walking that much in a crowded bigger store.......but the 2hrs I was gone, was enough to put me in active labor. I got home on Sunday and went to take a nap around 4pm, but the contractions were coming every 10min and I had hoped to just sleep through them and wake up and everything be settlled down like usual. Nope! They stayed 10min apart for 2hrs, and by 6:30pm, I thought I better go get looked at......hospital is only 7min away and by the time we made it their, they were 3min apart. By the time I got in l&d and on the monitors, they were 2min apart, checked me, dilated to 4. 1hr later, almost a 5. Got registered in, sent to my birth room, got the epi and the fluids and by 9:30pm, all labor had stopped. Since I was already a 5, they decided to wait till morning and see if labor started again. Nothing. Still a 5 and contractions were coming and going, but nothing to speak of. 8am they broke my water and started the pitocin at 9am. The epi had stopped working by then, and I labored the last 2.5hrs without any pain relief. Not too bad, the epi still gave relief in the stomache area, just not in the important parts, lol. I pushed 4 times in a row and he came all at once. 7lbs 6oz, 19.5 inches long. Not bad for almost 3wks early. I had my first 4 baby's natural, but the last 2 were epi baby's and I could not imagine ever doing natural again......but it was awesome, to feel that one last time! Im in love for the last time in my life with a perfect little life that I brought into this world, what a blessing, and how lucky am I to of been blessed with such healthy babys.

I will post more pics once I upload the others, but heres a quick one.
