Little Miss Evie 7.6 lbs 20.5 inches
so after my last post... i woke up the next day to having 'real' contractions. i always thought i wouldn't know the difference. there is definitely a difference. i started counting them at about 8:30am. by about 10am my husband kept telling me we should go to the hospital. I was like "no way jose, i'm not going in until i feel like i'm dying. i don't want to get sent home" so every 20 minutes when he'd ask I'd say 'lets just wait a little longer" finally noon rolls around and he says 'i really think we should go'... so i agreed. i told him that if they sent us home we were gonna go do laps and go back, i was not coming back without a baby!!
anyways we got to labor and delivery around 1pm, and usually the doctor takes a while to get there. not this time, she was there right after we got there to check me. i was so hesitant because i wanted to wait longer (if you are 4cm they keep you) so she checked and was like '5cm, ready to go' and i said 'uhm...does that mean i get to have the baby today?" and she laughed and was like 'the way it looks, its gonna happen soon!" so anyways i called before 6pm. when 5pm rolled around i was like, i'm ready!! and minutes later out came the most beautiful baby!!!
i am so blessed... she was so worth the wait. so beautiful and sweet. my older daughter and son are so in love with her... and are all up in her space 24/7. i am so overwhelmed with the love i have for my family. such a wonderful husband and 3 beautiful, perfect kids.... life is good! (even with no sleep!)
