Lillian Rose Newman
6lbs. 1oz. 18 in.
So it all began on March 4th at about 4:00 in the afternoon. I started having contractions thought nothing of it because I was not due for another three weeks. They stayed pretty consistant and then around 7:00 they slowed down and then stopped all together. BOOOO! So I went on about my night and at 9:00 they started back up, oh great I thought another tease. We get ready for bed and the contractions are still going strong. At 2:00 am. the contractions are about 2 minutes apart so I call Angie and she comes over so the kids can stay in bed. As we are leaving she asks when to get the kids up for school and I tell her not to worry about it, Jeff will be back by then...I have never been so WRONG in my life.
We get to the hospital the contractions are going strong but I am not dialated at all, but with my history they decided to keep me for awhile and watch me. They have me get up and walk around the halls to see if I can get things moving a little faster... it doesn't work.
Well I wait and still no progress. To make a long story short I am going to skip to mid-night. Well it's officially March 6th Taylor's birthday I have been in labor now for 27 hours and still no baby. the nurse comes in every 30 minutes to check me and I am still making very little progress. At 2:00am the nurse checks me and I am a 5 oh boy, I will be here forever at this rate...at 2:30 she's back in to check and I am ready YAY!
The nurse calls the Dr. who is sleeping in the hospital waiting for me to have the baby and he heads to my room. As the nurses and Dr. are getting everything ready the baby starts to come and as the Dr. puts his first glove on and reaches for his second the baby decides to come and Jeff catches her right in time, the Dr. turns around with his one gloved hand and takes over from there.
It was a long 29 ours but well worth the wait. After all these years I have my precious baby girl.
