Wow. He is finally here! He was 6 days late and was 9 lbs. 5 oz! Monday night I started bleeding. Just a little at first, then it got worse. It was bright red blood, so I went in to the hospital. They told me they were going to induce me right then. I was a litttle sad because I was scheduled to be induce Thursday, but I really wanted to go into labor on my own. Well, turns out I was already in labor! I had been getting painful contractions most of the day, but they were pretty close together (2 mintues or so) so I figured they were still Braxton Hicks that I had been getting forever. Well, nope, it was labor. It wasn't traditional labor because my contractions stayed 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes apart from the time I was dialated 3 cm until he was born. I really wanted to go natural, but after 7 1/2 hours, I begged for the epi. At that point the contractions were right on top of each other and I just couldn't focus anymore. I have to admit: the epidural was amazing. I was human again!! After 11 hours I started pushing. Connor had been at Station +1 for weeks, so everyone thought I would only haveto push a few times. First push you could see his head. However, it took 3 more hours of intense pushing. He was huge!!! It is so amazing! I had a 2nd degree tear and am still in quite a bit of pain, but I don't even think about it. He is so beautiful!! Well, time to feed again, but good luck to all you ladies! It is a great experience!

Congratualtions and welcome baby Connor. 9 lbs. 5 oz. was the exact birthweight of my oldest son, too :-)
