On October 1st(my actual due date) I started having what I thought might be really bad gas pains. It didn't seem like contractions(or at least what I thought they would feel like) but they were coming about every 2 minutes and lasted from 30 seconds to a minute. After calling the hospital and having them tell me to go in we determined they were contractions. I got to the hospital and they took me right up. As we were waiting for the doctor to come in my water broke, verifying that is wasn't gas pains but it was in fact, contractions. The immediately started me on an antibiotic because I was positive for strepie(sp?) I was only dilated to a 1 so I couldn't get an epi yet but I could have pain medicine. I tried to go as long as I could without the pain medicine. I tried bouncing on the ball, walking and even soaking in the jacuzzi, but finally I had to give in to the pain medicine. I worked for about 45 minutes then I was counting every second until I could get my epi. Finally at 5:15 they called the anesthesiologist and she finally got there at 5:30 and gave me my epidural. Let me tell you when the pain was that bad I was counting every second so 15 minutes doesn't seem like a lot but it was! We thought things would progress pretty fast after that but not sooo much. That morning I was starting to get hungry because I hadn't eaten since dinner and it wasn't much at that. I got to enjoy some jello and broth! Not soon after they started me on pitossin(sp?) because my contractions had slowed way down from the epi. It made me nauseous so they gave me some medicine for the nausea. After about 20 hours in the "birthing room" they started to talk about a C-section if things didn't progress faster. Essentially they wouldn't be able to go any higher on the pitossin and if I didn't deliver by that point I would have to go into surgery. Yikes! I got a bit scared at that point. But about an hour later they checked me and said I was good to start pushing. I pushed for an hour and my little "toddler" came out. Bryson Charles was born at 7:35 pm healthy and big! He didn't get weighed until about 10pm but he came in at a whopping 10lbs!!!!! We spent 2 days in the hospital and made our way home.

|Hannah was so fun to play with. Although I think she may have only liked me for the packet of gum she "borrowed" from me. Although she was nice enough to share her already chewed pieces that she kindly put back into my purse!|
|Kayla and Brooke have grown up so much!|
|Isn't Hannah adorable? And she looks just like Brit did at her age.|

My favorite: spray the pan with cooking spray then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and bake until light brown.
Mike's favorite: spray pan and sprinkle seeds with garlic salt and bake until light brown.
