I suck at writing so bear with me here

So I guess it all started with some period like cramps about 12:00am Sept 24th. They weren't bad, enough that I noticed them even while sleeping, but I slept pretty light. Was up a few times throughout the night thinking I had to use the washroom, but never did, just had that weird feeling. Got up around 7 with DH for work, and discovered my mucus plug, still totally in denial lol Told DH to go on to work, no need in wasting a day sitting at home doing NOTHING (convinced nothing was going on, after all I go overdue ) The cramps quickly turned to contractions about every 11 mins or so, but never got to bad. So I cleaned, finally packed my hospital bag and just waited it out wondering if or when I should go into the hospital. Finally DH got home around 6 so we dropped the kids off at the MIL and went off to the hospital. Walked in, still fine, the lady asked me numerous times if I wanted a wheel chair. No I was good! lol Stood waiting for what seemed like forever for some one in OB to come get us! Finally got into a room and the doc came to see me, checked me and to all of our surprise I was 4 almost 5 cms! We were both shocked then, still hadn't thought it was real! LOL Right away they got me off to a case room, everyone that came in was in shock I was even in labor I was handling it so well! The rest is pretty boring, I just walked around, really felt good. Around 6cm doc decided to break my water to get stuff going faster. By the time I was at 8 cm I was still feeling pretty good, up walking, rocking, able to function through the contractions. Never even considered any meds, was too late by that point anyways lol once I got closer to pushing I was really just plain beat out, felt like I couldn't do it anymore. Was so happy when the nurse finally said it was time to push. I pushed for sometime, but I think I was so beat out that it was taking too long. So the doc used the vacuum to help get him out, didn't take long then. When he came out we were just amazed at how TINY he was, compared to our other 2! lol We've been in love ever since!

My other 2 were 10lbs 2 oz and 8lbs 1oz so 7lbs is TINY to me!

I had my share of hard labors, so I'm happy this one went so well!

Awww! He's so cute! It does sound like a perfect labor! 7 lbs is tiny. I always thought that if I had a big old 8+ child, he or she would be HUGE, but even Lily seems teeny tiny. lol Congratulations!l
