She’s here

She’s finally here!! Aurora Elizabeth Sim born at 9:58pm on April 30th. We got the news in the afternoon that Katie’s water had broken. I picked up AJ from school to take to the hospital. Katie was anxious for AJ to get there, not that there wasn’t time, but she felt better with him there. I dropped him off at 12:30ish and off to watch kids for me until 4pm. I was back up at the hospital at 4 and Katie hadn’t changed much yet. She was still 3 cm. They checked her at 2:15 so the next one wasn’t due for another 15 minutes. When they did that exam, Katie had progressed to 5 cm. OH… and she already had her epidural and was geting pitocin to keep the contractions going. With in a half hour, Katie was feeling pressure. The nurse checked and in that 25 minutes, Katie went from 5 to 7 cm. It was going fast. They should have increased her epidural rate, because even through the birth, she could still feel some. It didn’t take long for her to get to 10 cm. After pushing 4 hours, she was finally born. 8 pounds, 6 oz and 19 1/ 2 inches long.
