Grace "Gracie" Ellen was born on July 4th @ 8:03 am.
She weighed in at 6 lb, 15 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. She has dark brown hair and blue eyes!
From the time I woke up (not exactly realizing that I was in labour) to the time that she was born was 2 hours and 8 minutes!
Basically I woke up at 5:55 am feeling hungry. Ate some cereal but still felt really crampy. I had to use the washroom 3 times but was still feeling super crampy. I turned on the bath and was hoping that it would alleviate some of the pain but after 1.5 minutes, I had enough.
Called the hospital and told them what I was feeling. They told me to come in and get checked, and if my cervix was not changing, I would be sent home with some pain medication........
At 6:45am, I called my friend to make sure that I could bring my 8 year old son by while I went to get checked.....
Woke up DF and son and headed out the door. I figure I was contracting about 4-5 minutes apart, never even had the chance to time them...
By the time we dropped off Alex and got to the hospital, it was 7:20am. They did a non-stress test on me and baby was doing well; I was contracting every 2-3 minutes. When they checked me, I was 8 centimeters dilated. She told us that the only thing holding in the baby was my water and pretty much wheeled me instantly in to the delivery room.......
As soon as they put down the cloth thingy under my butt, my water instantly broke! It was great timing. 15 minutes later and 3 pushes, little Grace entered the world at 8:03 am!
I'll post some pictures after I eat dinner and get Grace to bed!
