9 pounds 6 ounces
21 1/2 inches

Where to start.....................

Well I was woken up during the night with some contractions the night of the 10th. I thought nothign of it because i was able to go to sleep. At 8am that next morning my contractions had become on average 5 1/2 mins apart. I told Jason that i dont think hes going to be makign it to work today with a little chuckle. I wanted to wait to see if they were real labor contrations so i waited untill 10am. YUP THEY WERE REAL!!!!
SO we arrived at the hospital at 10:30. They checked me and i was 3 cm dialated and was paper thin. So they gave me a shot of morphine at 11am. That only kinda took the edge off. I had 2 nurses with me, the one was so stupid. UH. she made it sound like I wasnt able to get an epidural. So when she was out of the room I asked the other nurse when i could get one, and she was like "oh you can get one at anytime" UH i was so mad. So anyways I asked for one......they got the cathiter in my back. But it was to late. I was ready to push. UH the pain. So I only had to push for 45 mins and he was out. I tore in 2 spots....neither of them were where they do an episiotomy. This might be a little to much info, but some how one of my Labia tore. so weird. SO when he came out they were like yup he is a big baby like we though. And we all took a guess on his weight before they weighed him. No one guessed in the 9 pound range. I think the highest weight guessed was 8 pounds 12 ounces or something. So everyone including the doctor was shocked when it said 9 pounds 6 ounces. I couldnt beilieve it. My daughter was only 7 pounds 7 ounces. He's 2 pounds bigger then she was!!!!!!!!!!!! CRAZY! I wish i could of had the c section with him and pushed his sister out instead lol Well i guess everything went very well. He is tounge tied though.....so we are gonna get it snipped this week at his doctors visit. Im just afraid of it affecting his speech once he's older. I only had to stay in the hospital untill he was 24 hours old. SO that was nice. I think thats it. He's perfect in every way.

Great story! We all tried to guess Isabel's weight before she was out on the scale... she was 9 lbs 1.5 oz! A whole pound heavier than my first! I was lucky as she has a small head
