Thursday evening I was so tired and decided to go to bed early. I was very unhappy when I started having contractions every 20-30 minutes because I thought they were plain ones that were just keeping me up.lol These went on, waking me up, all night long. At 4am the contractions starting coming every 6 minutes and they were not fun. I woke my dh and told him it was time. We woke Allison up because she had to work at 5:15am and then we took off for the hospital. I could tell that it wasn't going to be too long, based on my comfort level but was really hoping to make it in time for an epidural because these contractions were all in my back. Once we got there, they checked me and I was already at 6cm. The Dr gave me something for pain and I was able to get an epidural after an hour. He was born an hour later. Everything went so fast and smooth. He is a wonderful baby!

When Sophia met him, she looked at me and said, "Momma, can we buy him and take him home?" I told her yes.lol

Blessings,

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Ps. 127:3-5

Lisa, welcome to your newest blessing!

I suspected I may have missed this. WOW - he's a great size for being 2 weeks early. How are he and you doing now? He's handsome.

Congrats.

Isn't it great how God ended up using the supposed sleep-deprived, annoying night into an early baby arrival!?! Yea for you and God! :) Soooo, did you get your blanket done for him? With all the illness and David's surprise entry, I'd be amazed if you did! Enjoy and get plenty of rest - if you can.

Congratulations Lisa! What a difference when you can just tell the childre, "We're going to the hospital now. Be back soon." Took a lot of years to get to the point where you can leave the olders in charge of the littles, huh? I'm liking it.
May God bless David James with a life full of the Lord's abundance.
