a baby story

This is how it all went down...with pictures thrown in for you to look at.

-Checked into the hospital at 7a.m. I was dilated to about a 3-4ish.

-Pitocin started at 8a.m.

-Water was broken by the doctor at 8:30a.m.

-Dilated to a 5 at at 10:30a.m.

-Had some pretty wicked contractions until the epidural was given just after 11a.m. and then felt nothing.

-My brother, Craig called around 12:35p.m. to check how things were going.

-12:40p.m., Aaron called his mom to check on the other kids. At that same time, Dr. Bigler came in to see how things were going.

-Aaron got off the phone with his mom, 12:41p.m. Dr. Bigler said I was at a 10 and "ready to go".

-One contraction and 2 1/2 pushes later at 12:49p.m., baby Oneil was born.

Oh, Aaron went and got some of this the next morning:

Banana bread from the Sun Break Cafe. The loaf cost $10 and weighed more than the baby. It is like tasting heaven, I tell you.

And now you know the rest of the story.
