July 11th 2009 11:27am
7lbs 2oz 19.5”

Friday morning (July 10th) I had my 38weeks check up
and nothing has changed since the last appointment the week before,
1cm 50% effaced…Darn!
So we went home telling everybody that it looks like
Brandon is comfortable inside.
Well as the day went on I was starting to feel some contractions
but we still continued shopping and driving around.
We ordered pizza for supper, the last time I ate from that restaurant
about 4 weeks ago I had gotten strong contractions about 8mins apart for almost 3hrs.
Well about an hour or so after we ate my contractions were coming closer about every 15-25mins.
Around 11pm Greg and I did the deed :hubba:
and then it wasn’t long after that the contractions were getting painful and every 10mins.
Well I took a bath and then about 2hrs later a shower, I was still in pain
but the contractions weren’t coming any closer than 10mins apart.
Greg called the hospital (this was around 2:30am) but they told us to wait til
they come closer to 5mins apart.
Well finally around 4am I cant deal with the pain anymore told
Greg to call his mom and lets get going to the hospital.
We arrived at the hospital at 5am a nurse checked me and said
“well it looks like you are in labor, your 3cm we are going to get you into a birthing room”.
They hooked me up with an IV which kind of slowed down my contractions,
they asked me if I wanted Synto drip (aka Pitocin) to bring the contractions closer again.
I was hesitant at first but I really didn’t want to be laboring all day,
I was still in pain and I was so done being pregnant.
Around 7-8am I had the EPI and was feeling so much better but was only at 4cm.
9:30AM got checked I was at 7cm, so the nurse called my OB to come in!
Cant remember when my water broke, it broke during one of the internal check.
10:00am my mom arrived.
11:00am my OB arrived and all the nurses were getting me prepped!
4 pushes later Brandon came out 11:27AM,
the cord was wrapped around his neck but all was well.
When my OB put him on top of me I couldn’t believe how much
Brandon looked like Breanna!!!
He looked so small too but he weighed 2 lbs more than her (7lbs 2oz and 19.5”long).
I didn’t even let out peep while pushing, I didn’t really feel anything.
With Breanna I was screaming my head off! LOL
Recovery is a pain!
Breastfeeding was hard for Brandon at first,
he still had a lot of mucus inside him so he was spitting up a lot.
The next day he was nursing like a pro!
Sunday 7pm we were released from the hospital!
I just couldn’t wait to see Breanna I missed her so, so much!!!
We couldn’t wait to see her reaction!
Breanna was just in awwww when she saw him!
Kept wanting to give him kisses and patting his head.
Here are some pics for those who havent seen it on facebook…
