Birth Story

Short: Mathew Charles White born 8/23/12 at 3:20pm weighing 8lbs 0.2oz and 20ins long

Long: My contractions started at 2:20 am on 8/23 and since my second pregnancy had a very short labor I quickily got to the hospital. I was checked and was only dialated 1 cm so they waited 2 hrs and I was now 2 1/2 and was admitted, we were officially having the baby. I found out scar tissue from my LEEP was slowing down my from dialation and I was in alot of pain. After another 5 hrs I was passed the scar tissue and could finally get an epidural. I loved it, no more pain, like my own little cacoon. My water was broken and I relaxed. At the end I start to feel the pain from the pressure. I pushed for 10-15 mins and Mathew was born. After delivery I was monitored for a high heart rate and had to recieve IV fluids due to being dehydrated. But that was all that went wrong. We came home 8/25 and are doing great. Now my family is complete.

Congratulations to Madeline and Welcome to the World Baby Mathew!

I noticed that it took exactly 13 hours for labor, delivery and birth. A lucky 13!

Looking forward to hearing more about you and Mathew on Baby's First Year Community. Be sure to check in over there to see what the other new mommies are up to!

Many blessings to you and your family,
