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!
