The little man has arrived!
Saturday morning (March 13th), I woke up around 6am with terrible pains in my lower abdomen and lower back. I thought I was psyching myself out thinking it was a contraction. (His due date was March 10th).
I got up from bed and started reading fashion blogs online. The pain came again about 20 minutes later. Throughout the whole day I felt irregular, painful contractions. They got more painful and more frequent as the day went on.
Around 630 that night, Noel and I headed towards the hospital! My contractions were about 7 minutes apart by then.
I was admitted into the hospital and was about 5-6 centimeters dilated. I got an epidural (yay for epidurals!!) and was in labor until about 4 am.
Noel, my mom, my sister Sarah, and Noel's mom were in the room with me. It was great having a support team and made the process a lot easier to go through. Around 4 am, I started pushing and at 5:26 am, baby Charlie was born.
He was 8 lbs 7oz and 21 1/4 inches long!
It was an incredible experience. My favorite doctor delivered Charlie, I had my family there, and Charlie was healthy and beautiful!
Thanks to everyone for your love and support.
