Aubrey Piearce Austin

Aubrey arrived May 1 at 12:05 pm.  Monday was a long night in the hospital with not much labor and even less sleep. 

However, after my water was broken at 7:20 am Tuesday things went pretty quickly!  Contractions started immediately and were 2 minutes apart.  I got an epidural just after 9:00 am and got to be the class project for 7 nurse anesthetist students.  A little awkward but a funny memory!

I progressed about a cm an hour and when I got to 6 the intense pressure hit, just like with Langley.  I was out of my mind in pain and complete in no time!

I pushed for 45 minutes despite Aubrey being 2 pounds smaller, because she was face up.  Aubrey weighed 7 pounds 5 ounces, and was 20 inches long.  She has a head full of brown hair but looks a lot like her big sister did at birth.

Everything went smoothly, it is unbelievable how much better I feel after this birth.  Aubrey is so sweet and tiny! 

We took pictures on every device we own, but here are the ones from the ipod...coming in handy as I do this one handed holding a sleeping baby on my chest!
