Short: Adrian was born on July 31, 2011 at 9:54pm - 7lbs 8oz 20 inches and a full head of hair!

Long: Lost my mucus plug on 7/30 and contractions wee 7-10 mins apart. went to the hospital and they check me and i was only 1 cm so they sent me home to labor some more. the next day i was contracting every 2-3 mins. went back to the hosp. around 2pm. they checked me and i was 5 cm.
got the epi about 40 mins later and the guy messed up, so i got it twice, but only my left side became numb right away, it took a little longer for my right to get numb. around 7pm, i was 9 cm and the epi wore off!! i was feeling everything anf it was the worst pain ever! my babies head was still high at 9 cm so i think that made the pain even worse. it was to the point were i couldnt even push i was in so much pain, the they gave me a spinal and i felt 100% better, i was 10cm and was pushing to get his head down. this was around 8:30 or so...finally it was time to really push. i thinked i pushed for about 30-40 mins and my beautiful baby boy was born with a full head of hair!!

life has been amazing! he's perfect
