Nov. 9

I started having contractions at 1 am. I got the kids bags ready for school in the morning and called my dad to give me a ride to the hospital. James was in Colorado. We had to get gas and all that junk so by the time we made it to the hospital it was 3:10 am. The whole ride there I was praying they would give me an epidural right away, I was hurting bad. I was looking for my insurance card at the check in desk when my water broke. They rushed me in the room and got me in a gown. They checked me and imagine the surprise of everyone when they realized I was 9 cm!!! So, no pain meds for me. The doctor got there and it was time to push. I pushed a few times and Chandler Gage was born at 3:41 am!! I was at the hospital for 30 minutes before he was born. I am amazed at myself. Can't believe I walked in there at 9 cm! He has a little bit of blonde hair and blue eyes, he is perfect. Breastfeeding is going good.* Recovery has been great. Here are his stats:
