Addison Danielle


Addison was born on September 24, 2009 at 8:55 p.m. She weighed 7lbs. 4oz. and is 20 inches long! I went into labor with her that morning at about 11:30, my contractions just started really strong and were about 2-3 minutes apart. At 1:30, Josh came and got me and we went to the hospital. The pain really wasn't THAT bad at this point, definitley bearable. When we got to L&D the nurses checked me in and decided I was for sure in labor, so they called my doctor. I wanted an epidural so they drew labs and said it would take about an hour for them to give it to me. I was dilated to a 3 at this point. I decided to go ahead and get something for my IV since the contractions were getting worse, it helped alot! I felt more relaxed after that. Then my doctor came in and broke my water which sped things up alot! I ended up being dilated to a 7 before I got the epidural, for about 30 minutes it was pretty bad pain! But, after the epidural I felt nothing and everything was great! I started to progress faster and the nurse decided it was time for me to push. I pushed for about 30 minutes and there she was! It was such a great experience, we had lots of friends and family in the waiting room cheering me on and waiting to meet Addison. She is the most beautiful and perfect baby!
