Hello everyone!  

As you can see I have been absent from posting for a while.  While my pregnancy was easy, I was always tired.  

I went into labor on May 27 at around 6:30am, we went to the hospital at 6pm.  On our way to the hospital we had to go grab a car seat from Target really quick (our Uppababy car seat was still being made… UGH) and after Target grab a bite to eat too.  The contractions just started being 5 minutes apart for one minute for one hour. So we knew we had a bit of time on our hands.. since I was doing natural labor we did not feel the need to run into the hospital by any means.

 On the way into Target my water broke. HAHA! Of course that would happen to me, but I ran to the bathroom and Trent literally ran to go get a car seat. So because my water broke we decided not to eat… BIG MISTAKE.. I was told I could not need until the baby was born which would end up being a full 22 hours before I would eat again. UGH!!

I went 15 hours of natural labor in the hospital… I then decided I was too tired to continue without some sort if medical intervention.  They gave me a drug to help me sleep for 45 minutes… wouldn’t you know it shift change occurred so every single nurse said goobye to me and every single nurse said hello.  At the end of the 45 minutes I had not slept and then my body decided it was time to get sick. FUN TIMES.  After another hour of those good times, I broke down and told Trent I was throwing in the towel.  After 17 hours of labor I was only 3cm (Hunter was hanging out in my hip not in the front).  The Dr came in and gave me the epidural and pitocin and 4 hours later Hunter Baby was born!

I got to hold Hunter for almost an hour before they needed to take him and give him a bath.  Daddy (Trent) got to give him his first bath.  It was super precious.  Hunter was not into eating right away but I sure was, so Trent and I got some PIZZA!!!  We all got some well needed sleep and then we finally got to go home!

That is where I will leave it right now. I have some stuff I need to do before Trent gets home.

Hope you enjoy the little story and the pics 🙂  Missed you all!!
