The Birth of Taylor Ann!







Well there's some more pictures for your viewing pleasure.

I'm writing this all out so I don't forget the details...don't bore yourself too much reading it!

Nathan surprised me Friday morning with a picture text of him in front of his truck (thats the first picture up there) outside the house. I had NO clue he was coming home! It was such an awesome surprise! I didn't know if I should be mad at him for lying to me or excited because he was home... So I just cried. I had a dr.'s appointment scheduled for 2:30 on Friday so Nathan went with me to that and we scheduled an inducing for me the next morning at 4:30. At about 12:30 Friday night I woke up with contractions. I laid there for a while thinking they would go away like they always did and THEY DIDN'T!! So I got in the bath to see if that would make them stop and they still didn't but they weren't very painful so I wasn't really sure. So at about 1:30 I try to go back to bed and they finally start hurting so off to the hospital we go. We get there at about 2:00 after we got a little lost...not a good idea when your in active labor!! We get to triage and I'm already 7 cm. Oh it was kinda funny cuz they called while I was changing and Nathan answered and they told him there were no beds so they couldn't induce me at 4:30....too bad...we're already here!! So they move me to a bigger area in triage since there were no beds in L&D. They finally come in to give me the epidural and poke me twice before they get it right...it felt like I was sitting there forever! That is the worst position to be in when your having contractions!! So I lay back down after they get the epidural in and I tell the nurse I need to push...so I do and there goes my water!! Then I push about 2 more times and Taylor Ann was here at 3:09! I felt every bit of it and it was an amazing experience! She cried for the first hour of her life and hasn't really cried since. She is such a good baby. We are so excited to have her in our family! Yes, even Kaylin is excited!

That is SO AWSOME!!! I am so glad Nathan was able to come home and be with you. James is currently on his way home so he can be with me when I get induced on Monday. Congradulations to you both that is so exciting!

Oh my gosh can't believe you had her natural. And lived to tell the tale. You brave and strong girl!! At least it all went fast. Hopefully you didn't feel too much pain (I can't even imagine). I can't wait to see Taylor! I hope you are enjoying your sweet little family and that you are getting some sleep (ha!).

Wow, your story is so much more exciting than mine. I'm working on writing it up... it's just taking time between having to nurse, CONSTANTLY! I guess that's the life of a new mother. Hope all is well at your house!
