Matthew's hospital photo

Hi everyone! My little man is here! He is the most beautiful thing I have ever laid my eyes on.

Matthew Edward Stull, Jr. was born on September 18th at 10:10pm. He weighed 6 lbs, 7 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long.

Here is my birth story.

On Saturday night, at around 9 pm, I was doing some laundry and I noticed that I was having pretty regular contractions, although they didn't hurt that bad. I went into L&D and they hooked me up to the monitor. It wasn't showing my contractions, although I could sure feel them. They were getting stronger and stronger. After an hour, I was still only at 2 cm, so the doctor declared me not in labor and gave me a shot of Nubain and sent me home to get some rest.

I got home and slept for about 4 hours, and then the contractions started to get stronger and stronger to the point where they were waking me up. I labored at home with my mother and my husband, and my mother's fiance until 4pm on Sunday. I was lying on the couch and I had a contraction that brought tears to my eyes. I knew it was time to go. Suddenly I remembered that I had forgotten to shave my legs, and Matt got in the shower with me and shaved them for me. It was funny ( not to me at the time of course, but looking back now it is), because I was squirming and crying and he's down on his knees in the shower trying to get my legs shaved for me. My back was hurting me so bad. I was standing with the water running on my back and it seemed to help. Matt got me out of the shower, and him and my mother got me dressed. My contractions were so strong, and were coming at 2 minutes apart, so I couldn't do anything but squirm and cry.

Then the wierdest thing happened. I was dressed and and the bag was packed. I found myself the calm one and telling Matt to calm down. He was running around the house, worried about me and trying to get everything done.

So, we loaded up into the car (I brought my pillow and sprayed my perfume on it--it was such a comfort), and started towards the hospital. When we got to L&D, they checked me and I was 3cm, and 90% effaced and at 0 station. They admitted me, and I was in pain for an hour before I got any pain medication. They gave me a shot of Nubain just so I could sit still enough to get the epidural. (Yes, I wimped out--more power to all the mothers who do it without an epi! I tried, but I couldn't.) Anywho...they broke my water and 3 hours later and 3 pushes later Matthew was born. I tore at the front, and have 8 stitches, but I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Gotta go, Matthew is hungry! BTW, breastfeeding is going great!

I don't have internet at home, but I'll try to get on as soon as possible.

Congrats to all the new mommy's!

WOW!! Another Oct. turned Sept. baby! And look at those cheeks!!! He's beautiful! Isn't it wierd how after stressing for month about arrival, the day you realize he is actually on his way, there is almost a sense of peace and quiet that takes over... almost as if women have been doing this for thousands of years... hmmmm!

Congrats, mommy!
