Welcome Baby Sadie

After trick or treating for hours with Ian, I thought for sure I would go into labor on Halloween. I was having pains and everything hurt. After eating a late dinner and sitting for a bit, I felt fine. Nothing happened the next day or the next. Tuesday I had a Dr. appt and she said she would start me if I wanted. I wanted to go on my own, but being past my due date and nothing was happening, I agreed. So, we set it up for Thursday the 5th. I had to be at the hospital at 7:30 in the morning.

About 9:30 my doctor broke my water and the pit was started at 9:00. About 11:30 I got my epidural, which was wonderful. We made slow progress and the finally I went from a 6 to a 10 and complete in about an hour. We waited another hour for her head to come down a little more. Finally around 5 we were ready to push and my Dr. got there just in time. 15 mins later we had a beautiful baby girl. I got to have her with me the whole time. It was wonderful. I got to see her first bath and everyting. All was well and healthy!

She is beautiful! We are so excited to see your little family growing. We wish we were there to see her in person...but since we're not, give her a big "snug" from us.
