287 days later

We now know full well what a miracle is. So in love!
I'm doing this from my phone so bare with me.
Came in last night for a round of cytotec, slept a total of 1 hour.
At 5:00 AM started having strong contractions, got my epidural at 6:30 AM.
Our amazing dr came in at 8:00 and broke my water and I was dilated to a 4 and 75% effaced. Changed to internal monitors due to HB dropping.
Did a "whiff" of Pitocin from 9:00-10:00.
By 10:40 I was 10 CM & 100% 0 station.
Started pushing a little after 1:00 Pm & baby Tru was born 1:39 PM weighing 7lbs 11oz and 21" in length.
We both got to watch his birth (something we did NOT think we'd do) and James assisted in delivery & cut the cord.
I'm so proud of him!
So so perfect and we are blessed beyond words.
