Katie was scheduled to be induced at 7:30am. We dropped off Tyler with Grandma and Grandpa the night before, I took the day off work, and we were up at 6:30 after staying up late getting things ready. We get it, check in, get Katie all set up in a bed, and they start her pitocin to get contractions started. On our way to having a new little baby. 20 minutes in, they inform us of a tiny little previously unmentioned detail- you have to wait 6 hours after eating to get induced.
Since Katie had had a few bites of oatmeal on the way out the door, the doctor decided to send us home to come back the next morning. Fortunately, he ultimately changed his mind and decided to keep us around and resume inducing at 1. Whoo!
3:45 Katie is dilated to a 5-6 and gets her epidural
4:15 Epidural is ready, and she is now fully dilated to a 10
4:36 Pushing begins
4:41 (3 contractions later): Baby!
2 1/2 years ago, Katie spent 2 hours pushing Tyler out, and it has clearly paid off.
Some more of the pretty girl...
We're now in the hospital, Mamma and Baby are both doing so well, and we should be checking out Saturday morning. Speaking of Tyler, he was very unsure what to make of the new baby.
What's more interesting- McFlurry or Baby Jamie? :
He finally came around, though (albeit spoon still in hand):
Tyler is still trying to understand that "Mamma's Baby" was never just a funny name for "belly button."
Good job Mamma and Baby Jamie!
