He is home!

Well I went in Friday morning at 10:30am to get induced. They started my pitocin at 11:40am and broke my water at 12:45pm. I was dilated to 2cm then. I got my epidural at 2:40 and was 4cm by 3:10. With all the contractions coming on strong I was 6cm at 5:15 and just 30 minutes later I was 8cm. 20 minutes later at 6:05 I was already 9cm and ready to push at 6:20pm. My epidural did not take on my left side so I felt everything. I was not feeling real confident and wanted to give up but they convinced me I could do it. And he was born at 6:40pm. He weighed 8lbs. 13oz. and 20 1/2 inches long. He is nursing good and we are both healing nicely. Thanks for all your prayers.
