It is such a blessing to us to finally have her here in our home. She brings such a sweet spirit to us. I am grateful for all the love and support from our friends and family. Well here it goes. I was supposed to get induced the 15th at 8 oclock that night but they didn't have any beds open. So they told me to wait for a phone call. I was up all night I couldn't sleep. They called me Sunday morning the 16th at 5:30 am and told me to come in. We got there at 6 and got all checked in. They started me on Petosin at 7. I was only dilated to a 1 and a half. I felt some contractions but not much. At 12:30 Doctor McNeal came in and broke my water then I got the epidural at 1. So they kind of just kept checking on me. So at 4:30 Doctor McNeal came in and said its time to start pushing. So I pushed for an hour and thirty eight minutes. I had Audrey at 6:08 pm. When she came out she had the cord wrapped around her neck and she had a knot in the cord too. It was so scary cause we could have lost her inside me with out even knowing. Im grateful she was ok. Its an awesome feeling being a mom. I love being home with her and everyday the changes we see in her. Im grateful that my mom stayed with me the first week to help and then grateful for Kendals mom for staying a couple days to help too.
