Jay's Birth!

So now that Jay is happily sleeping on my lap right now I thought I'd take a moment to write down all the fun events of Jay;s big day!

On August 7th I started having contractions at 4:30am and they were 7 minutes apart, by 8:30am they were coming every 2-4 minutes, so Derek and I called the doctor and he told us to go to the hospital. When we got there I was only 2cm and I was sure they were going to send me home! But the doctor came in and since I was already 6 days late he told me they were going to keep me! About an hour and a half later I was 4cm and got the epidural, and then they put me on pitocin, and then by 3:30 I was at 10cm! They then waited about 40 minutes to let him descend a little and then I started pushing and 20 minutes later he was out! And thanks to my friend the epidural I didn't feel a thing! Such a nice treat!

Jay was born August 7, 2011at 4:49pm and was 6lbs 15oz, and 20in long!

Derek and I spent the next 2 days in the hospital and then we came home Thursday afternoon and have been loving being parents ever since!


  1. I LOVE his hair. Super jealous.

  2. My nephew is the cutest thing EVER! I am so jealous that everyone gets to meet him before me. You know you guys can always make it trip to Cali.... ;)
