This day in history 1994 (part 4)

*early moning the Dr. started the pitocin to try and get labor going better

*Got an epidural soon after the pitocin

*finally making progress, started dilating

*1PM Dr checked, started to swell--they started talking c-section

*3PM More progress--wait some more

*5PM--more swelling--definate c-section

*6:02 PM--Welcome Robert Jordan Myers
9lbs 70z and 21 1/2 inches

The first thing the doctors said, was, "Wow! we underestimated the size of this baby."
DUH!!! I had joked with my doctor the enitre pregnancy that he was going to be big, and wow, was he ever. That was the reason for the swelling in my cervix, he was so big, that his weight was causing me to swell, and of course unless you fully dilate you can not deliver naturally. Also, he was turned face up. He was finally here. He was a beautiful baby.

As you can tell, the long days in the hospital and all the stuff didn't scare me from having more children. 2 more after this one.
