We watched Quest for Camelot but I really don't know what happened because I was so excited and by then the contractions were getting painful so I was pretty distracted. When the nurse checked to see how far I was (a four), I decided to get my epidural. Why have pain if you don't have to right?
Oh my gosh, can I just say how wonderful epiduals are? Instant relief. For all you ladies who are all about going natural, hats off to you. I guess I'm kind of a whimp. I'll take my drugs, thank you very much. I did and I was happy as a clam.
At about 7 or 8 Mom and Abby came to stay with us for the rest of the day. We watched I Love Lucy and I did alot of sleeping and resting too to get ready for pushing, which came at about 1 pm.
30 minutes later, I was once again happy; not because I was having a c-section but because the worst pain in the world was gone. I swear if I lived back in the day, I would join a convent and be perfectly happy serving God and never having to go through natural child birth.
We stayed in the hospital for 3 days together to recover and then we went home and our lives have been changed forever and I love it. I love being a mother and I love watching Gavin be a father. Grant is the perfect start to our little family and I love him so much.
The end...of a new beginning.
