Friday June 3, 2011 started real early at 4:30 am we headed to the hospital. They got us all checked in then by 6:30 am they started the pitocin and the Doctor broke my water. By 7 am I was in labor.
With all my births I have tried to not have an epidural but with the pit the contractions are really intense and with my other 3 by the time I reach a 6 I ask for the epidural. Jadan it never worked and I delivered him without but was unprepared for it. So with this delivery Danny and I prepared and talked a lot about doing it without the epidural.
I got to a 6 and thought I'm close I can do it. By the time I was to a 8 I wasn't so sure I was going to make it. But I held off but by the time I was to a 10 and ready to push I thought I was crazy not to have and epidural. We had to wait for Dr. Dewey for about 15 min and they didn't want me to push because the baby was still to high. This is when Danny told me it was pretty funny to listen to me. But Danny and my Mom help me with the pain along with the wonderful nurse. Dewey finally showed up and told me to start pushing. After pushing 6 times it was 10:57am my little boy had made it here and I could hear him crying that is my favorite part about giving birth. He was such a cute little guy. We hadn't decided for sure what to name him yet. But after seeing him Dan and I looked at each other and said Logan. So Logan it was. They took him over and weighed him he was a good size baby 8lbs 11oz and measured him 21in long. He was a strong healthy baby.
I'm so thankful to my Heavenly Father for sending my this little boy I know he was meant to be part of our family.
