Finnegan George ~ Day 1 ~ 12/5

I'm so in love, I can't even describe it!

Birth Story:

I had awful contractions all Thursday night. I went into the hospital at 10 am on Friday. I couldn't walk or talk through the contractions I was having. When I was checked at 11 am, I was 5 cm dilated. I was so happy that all that pain was actually doing something.

I got the epidural at noon and then felt awesome. My contractions were irregular so they gave me pitocin. At 5 pm I was 9 cm. I was feeling the contractions pretty bad again and Finn's heartrate was dropping each time I had a contraction.

The ob had me push a couple times and his heartrate dropped even lower. So they did an emergency c-section. It all happened so fast and was pretty scary.

Finn was born at 6:21 pm weighing 8 lbs, 6 oz & 20.5 inches long. I didn't get to hold him for the first time until about 8:30 pm.
