Jack did arrive on Tuesday May 5, 2009. He came at 6:32pm, weighing 6 lbs., 19 inches long. We had a long day waiting for him. After arriving at the hospital my contractions were about 2 1/2 minutes apart. Mark and I walked the halls, smiling and laughing anxious to meet our little one. Around noon with contractions still a couple minutes apart they became a bit more painful. By 2:30 I was all the way dilated and I pushed for two and half hours. Mark was great and so encouraging through out the whole thing. The Dr. finally came in, I pushed some more, then we tried forceps. Baby wasn't going to come - it was time for a C-Section.
We prepped and went down to the Operating Room where we finally met Jack. Mark sat with me during the procedure and got to peek over the curtain just as they were pulling out the baby. He was the one to announce "It's a boy!" As they were stitching me up I experienced some severe shoulder pain and nausea - no Fun! But totally worth it to get to meet that handsome little guy.
