Jaden Patrick

On June 19 2003 I decided that I was going to WALK like crazy.
Dh and I, and our little puppy Bruiser walked up and down our street until it has been about a mile and a half walk.

Later that evening I wanted to walk some more so we went outside and walked it again.

Then while Dh was watching a show on TV i walked up and down the hall in our house, and circled the living room for about 30 minutes.

At around 1:30 I had gotten up to go to the bathroom (one of the thousands of trips I had made that night..lol) then at I felt a slight cramp in my side and rolled over onto my left side. I thought I heard something pop.
I got up to go and check it out and felt something leaking, so i basically Hopped to the bathroom, as soon as I got the commode, my water broke (1:38 am)
I yelled at dh..hey hey..My water just broke...his sleepy reply "Youve got to be kidding me".

Then we went to the hospital. I wasnt haveing any pain but I didnt turn down the epidural at 5:30am. The guy came in and gave the EPI to me, and then we waited and waited. I was given Pitocin as well.
At 12 o'clock days of our lives was on so I started watching it (Its my fave soap)
So at 12:30 the nurse told me i was dialted to 10 and I could start pushing.
Between pushes we both watched days of our lives,(I watched it the whole time, ITs a GREAT focus point).
Dh was holding one leg, and a nurse was holding the other.
During the soap Passions, at 1:22 pm (JUNE 20) Jaden Patrick came into the world.
Weighing 6lbs and 5 oz and was 19 inches long.
He was the most beautiful baby in the entire world!! :-)

I happily Breastfed Alba for 5 1/2 months!!!!

Below is my weightloss ticker. This is not for the pregnancy weight to come off as it has pretty much all came off. The rest of it is just what I've been wanting to loose for a while now to get back to my healthier weight!

You know Steph, I've read a lot of birth stories. I have never, and I mean NEVER, heard of someone watching a soap opera while delivering a baby. Classic! I wonder if the soap people know what people are doing while watching their shows .... LMAO!

And yes, Jaden is a beautiful baby!
