Labor Pains

November 4th

Well I guess I am in the 10 percent…no guessing this evening…..let the labor pains begin.

I woke up from an afternoon nap and discovered my water broke. Baby Erin has decided to join us in the world a few weeks early.

Just a side note: I thought when my water would break, it would be just one gush of water and that’s it. No. For me, the water just kept coming. When I arrived at the hospital I was leaving a trail of water behind only to apologize profusely. “I’m so sorry. Please put up a wet floor sign so no one slips and falls.”

In labor for 36 hours, the baby wasn’t able to get past my hip bone to get through the canal. I had to have an emergency C-section. Ryan all suited up, ready to go was more than eager to finally meet our little one.

It was a smooth C-section; just a weird sensation of pulling and yanking. I was preparing myself for much worse, but it was maybe 15 minutes, I suddenly heard the sounds of our baby crying. Ryan and I both couldn’t help but cry as well. Her cry was the most beautiful sound in the world. It all felt surreal especially when Ryan looked at me with a broad smile “We did it babe! We are FINALLY parents!! ”
