This is about how I was feeling before the epidural...not too badI then asked if I could go ahead and just get my epidural, Nick left because he's a wussy :) and they came it, shot me up and next thing I know.....I'm feeling like this.....AHHHHH!!!!!
Pain free and listening to some tunesI am then told that I am completely dilated, except one thing....Cole was upside down. Um ok, they could have told me he was coming out with two heads, I didn't care at that point. They informed me that I COULD get him out, it would just be harder. Heck, I was up for it. BUT, my doctor had a great idea to put my body in some acrobatic position to try to get him to flip over. So, with one leg practically over my head (ha, not really), I laid there for another hour and next thing we know, he flipped the right way and we were ready to go. My doctor is so smart! :)
Without going into too much detail.....an hour and a half later...Mr. Cole was born. 8:57am weighing 7lb 6oz.
Does anyone remember that scene from Men in Black when Will Smith is helping that lady deliver her baby in the car and the baby comes out as an octopus with all those tentacles?? That's what I swore came out of me when he came out...ha! Gross??
And here is a beautiful picture of me and Cole....yep, I'm still all drugged up and feeling good. Can't you tell by my eyes!!! Sheesh!And that's Cole's birthday story....couldn't have been a better experience and it truly has been the best year of our lives! We are so blessed to have such a sweet boy. We love you Cole!
