What to do?

Welcome to the world.

So Henry is finely here. I was in labor since the beginning of the month of March. The doctors wouldn't do anything to progress my labor and they didn't shut it down because I was 37 weeks. So finely when I was 39 weeks they induced me. I went in to the hospital at 7:30 am Thursday and they started to progress my labor. I must say the contractions got stronger but never hurt. About 3:30 I asked for the epidural even tho I didn't feel much pain I figured it would help me dilate faster and get the baby to come. So around 6 I started feeling pressure and it was constant so I let them know, so they said they would check to see how far I was probably not all the way yet. When they checked the baby was crowning! It was so exciting they got the doctor to come in and i pushed for two contractions and then he was out. Again another 9lbs baby out in under 5 minuets. Henry was born at 6:14pm on March 24th 2011 weighing in at 9lbs on the dot and 21 inches long. He has lots of black hair and dark eyes. He is doing great! He is defiantly Justins brother you can see the resemblance. I am just so happy that he is here. I am doing ok. I did have to have a blood transfusion because my levels dropped really low, But since I got that I am doing much better I would even say I am doing 10x better than I did after Justin was born. I am just so glad that I am done.

Can't do it any longer!

So I am 38 weeks pregnant and have been in labor for a few weeks. I have tried every thing to try and progress my labor since the Doctors wont do anything till a week from this Thursday. I have tried to be patient, and I must say that Henry is a little to comfortable. I have been only at a 1 and a half centimeters for dilation. I have tried every thing that people have thrown at me and it seem as if nothing is working.

Justin is so sweet tho he takes care of me when he is a wake he is such a cute little kid. He has decided that Henry will be know as Howey which is funny. He is excited for Henry to come. When he gets a cookie he wants one for Henry also, he is so cute that way. I love that he is excited for Henry to come. I am SOOO glad that he knows that Henry is his baby brother instead of a puppy named Two. Well I hope that Henry will be coming next Thursday unless any one has any more ideas of how to help me dilate. Hopefully my next post will be about how big Henry is and how Justin loves him.
