Water broke at 2:00am in the mornning. Got to hospital and they hooked me up to monitors. I was dialated to a whopping 1! We were almost there...haha. Gave me some potossin and an epidural when I was a little more dialated. Around 2:00pm I was ready to push. The only people in the room for the next 2 hours were Tara (my wonderful nurse), Paul, and my mom. Everyone was great coaches and we laughed and enjoyed each other for the first hour and then the epidural wore off and no one was laughing after that. At 4:15 the Dr. came in and gave me my last epidural and Will was out at 4:24. Out of 14 births that day in the hospital, I was the only one who did not have to have a c-section. Let's just say that since I could feel the contractions there was no stopping my pushing...later we found out that my epidural had been leaking and I was not given the full dose promised earlier that day.
William Luke Mason was 6lbs. 11oz. and 20in. He is the cutest, sweetest, most precious bundle of joy we have ever met. We are so in love with him! Here are some pictures of our days at the hospital:
