The fog is slowly lifting. I hope this entry makes sense...I'm operating on only a few hours of sleep. Its been hard adjusting to no sleep, but totally worth it for all the sleepy cuddle time with Owen. We are all madly in love with him. He is super cuddly and smells SO good.
For those of you that don't know....Owen was born on Wednesday Dec. 3 at 4:52 a.m. He was 7lbs 13 oz and 21 inches long.
I was scheduled for an induction the following day and Owen is such a good baby he came naturally...just in time the night before. A cuban guy Drew works with told Drew to say a prayer over my belly to make the baby come. Drew did this and then we went into town to see a movie to get my mind off the induction. I started getting mild contractions in the movie but thought nothing of it because i had the same the night before. We then went to go eat some mexican food (i was told to eat spicy to kick him out), and my contractions started coming so fast we had to leave once our entrees arrived and made a run for the hospital. We arrived at the hospital at 7p.m. I labored with contractions for four hours, and then received an epidural (which was awesome). Owen arrived shortly after we began pushing. All warm and lovely.
Back to sleepy baby land...I will post more pics when I can.
