I know that its a little late!!!! sorry, its been crazy since the little man has been home! So, it all started morning of the 24th....I had kept my siblings at my house Saturday night so early Sunday morning my dad came to pick them up. When he got to my house he said that he wanted to take the girls with him for the day, of course I was okay with this I thought I would get some rest. Brandon had to be at work by noon and it was about 10:30 by this time. All at once I started having contractions 7-8 minutes apart. I told him that I would be fine they were probably just Braxton Hicks. Brandon went to work and by 12:15 I had to call him bc my contractions were 4-5 mins apart. He came home and we headed to the hospital. When I got there contractions were 2-3 mins apart and I was 3 cm dilated....They checked me in an hour and said that I was 4 cm so they admitted me and started the iv. My doctor came in and checked me and said that I was 3 cm dilated so I hadnt changed, I had been 3 cm for 2 weeks. She checked me in an hour and was still 3 cm....Because I had high blood pressure she said that she was going to go ahead and give me pitocin so that the contractions would change my cervix....Dr. Moore broke my water at about 4:30, the pitocin started at about 5:30 and by 6:30 I was ready to push. While trying to push Masons heart rate continued to drop so this was a concern....It was a struggle but Mason was born happy and healthy at 6:44 p.m. He weighed 7 lb 4 oz and 21 inches long!!! We got us a healthy little boy!!!

Thanks for all the prayers!!!!
