Thanks for the congratulations everyone! I'm so happy that he's finally here . I was really starting to lose it. I feel (almost) like myself again!
I'll write out my whole birth story later, but the short of it is that I went to an appointment at 10am Tuesday to confirm that my water had broken. It had, so they wanted me to go to L&D right away for an induction. It actually had been leaking for at least a week, but I had no idea. I was about 4cm dilated.
By the time we got to the hospital and settled in it was about 1:30pm. I was feeling a few contractions, but nothing major. At around 2:30, they started pitocin and I walked around for an hour before getting consistent contractions. Around 3:30 they broke my water, which is really when things started to pick up. At 6:15 things were really intense, got checked, and I was 7cm. Super bummed. Maybe 5 minutes later I was feeling like I needed to push and was 10 cm. 12 minutes, and about 5 pushes, later he was born .

Levi loves him already! It's so cute.
ETA: Sorry for no updates Paula! I was so jittery after they told me I was being induced that instead of sending the text to you, I deleted your number!
