On Dec. 30th 2011 we welcomed Madison into the world. Here is how it goes

I woke up at 5:45 am on Dec. 30th having some mild contractions. I had my 40 week appointment that morning at 9:15, so my mother and I went walking. We went into the Dr. and was 70% effaced, and only dilated a "dimple" so not even 1/2 a cm. My mom and I hit the mall to do some mall walking, and pick up some last minute things. When we got home I relaxed for a bit, but the contractions were getting stronger. At about 3 we decided maybe we better go into L&D and see if anything was happening. We hit rush hour traffic, so it took about 45minutes to get to the hospital, they checked and I was dilated to a 3, they wont keep you unless your at a 4, so I had to walk. I walked for about 45 minutes and rechecked in at a 5cm!! My Dr. came and broke my water at about 5:15, and then I didnt make any progress for who knows how long... I opted then to get Fentanyl, which is only good for 1 hour, in that hour I was able to relax enough to progress to 7 cm. Once there it seemed like everything went really fast. Next thing I new I was dilated to 10cm, and ready to push, that was around 8:50 or 9:00 and we delivered at 10:04 pm!!

She had swallowed some amniotic fluid and possibly meconium, but the pediatrician checked her out, and she was able to get the go ahead to go home on Dec. 31. We were discharged Dec. 31 @ 6:30pm.

Life couldnt be better!
