Sorry that I have neglected the blog… Having a newborn sure does put a twist on your priorities. I am still working on my birth story because I am waiting on edits from my husband and Doula but I will post that as soon as it is ready. Here is the short version, however for those of you that are interested:

I went into labor 10 days passed my due date, naturally.

Went through 22 hours of unmedicated, hard labor (can’t talk through contractions) and at that point only dialated to 6.5cm so I asked for an epidural.

2 hours of pushing, followed by an hour of rest and then another 30 min of pushing. Baby wasn’t coming.

C-Section delivery after 28 hours.

Baby Oliver was 7 lbs 10 oz and was born on 08/08/08 (11 days late). The labor and delivery was anything but perfect, in fact a bit traumatizing, but Ollie is absolutely perfect!
