|Asa in Rachel's Hand-Me-Downs|
|The kids meet their new brother|
I managed to fall asleep for 2 1/2 hours. Did I mention getting the epidural was the best decision I made? They had put internal monitoring in for me and Asa so they could make sure they knew where his heart rate was at without question. They came in at 3am and said they weren't sure what was going on with me, but my contractions just weren't looking strong enough to move him down and honestly, it sounded like I was headed for the OR. She said she would check me to see.... and I was 10 cm's and ready to push! So in 2 1/2 hrs, while sleeping, I went from 4 to 10! My friend Kim who was my nurse when I had Rachel had said she could come in, but not before 3 am. They asked if I wanted to start pushing or wait for Kim - I chose wait :o) Kim got there around 3:30, and after they got everything ready, I started pushing.
But my baby boy is alive.
He's really well behaved :o)
And I am so thankful to my great God Who created him - just like He created Rachel - and Who loves them both more than I, in my humanness, ever could. A love like that is hard to fathom.
