And, today, we all went in to celebrate with him! First he told the class about the pictures on his poster.
We all had a great time and were very proud of Ryan!
Their animals got stuffed,
Plus, there are going to be all the pictures of Ryan holding her, because he does it and I just can't resist taking a picture of the sweetness!
It's good to be home!
They were pretty mild, so I wasn't sure if we should head to the hospital or not. Ryan was up watching cartoons in bed with Scott when I got home. I finished packing my bag, put away laundry, and tried to distract myself with the internet for awhile. At 7:25 I called the nurse (who sounded really tired and not that happy to help me) who told me I could go into the office after 9 to get checked or, if the contractions continued 5-10 minutes apart for an hour, I should go to the hospital.
At 8, I told Scott we should go, knowing it would take 30 minutes to get there. The contractions got stronger, so it was good to go. When I got there, I was 3-4 cm, and since I was 40 weeks, they said they'd keep me. Got into a delivery room, got an IV, and sometme around 10, the doctor came in and broke my water. Then the contractions got worse. At 10:15, I got my epidural, and things got better. Better even than when I had Ryan. No pain, no pressure! So nice.
The doctor came in after 11, had me push 3 times through a contraction, then again without a contraction, and Jillian was here! (hope this isn't too graphic!)
And a few of my kids (plural! Wow!)
