He's here!

Liam Blake Thompson
born 11/26/09 at 2am
8lbs 3oz   19 inches long

Im so glad hes finally here. It was a really long hard labor. Heres the story...
I went in the morning of the 25th at 5:30am and my water had already broken so I was admitted around 7:30. I was having small contractions about every 5 mins and I got an epidural sometime that afternoon. (I cant remember when, I was concentrating on other things)... it was wonderful not being able to feel a thing after that! I was fully dilated to a 10 at 6:30 and started pushing around 7. I pushed for about 2 hours pretty regularly but he wasnt coming down like they were wanting. They had me rest for a little while and I started having horrible back labor and the epidural wasnt helping much with that. The anesthesiologist had to come in 3 times to give me more drugs since I was in so much pain. My doctor came in around 11pm and said that he could try to pull him out or get forceps to help or I could have a c-section. I was begging him for a c-section because I was so exhausted from pushing and wanted my back labor to stop. He had an emergency c-section before me, so I had to wait about another hour or so. Finally around 1am they numbed me all up and I was so tired that i passed out once I couldnt feel anything. They took me in around 1:30 and Liam was born at 2:00. The dr said that there was no way Liam would have been able to be born vaginally because my pelvis wasnt opening like it was supposed to. So good thing he didnt try to pull him out! We are now at home and doing well. Im sore, but am very glad that our little man is here and its over with! So far he is such a good baby and very content and alert. 
This is my favorite picture of him...
