September 11th is a very important day for all us but this year it was extremely special for our family. Emma Reagan decided to make her big debut 11 days early!! Saturday was a normal day and we went to Crossfit for a great workout. Hello… I blogged on Saturday about the closet dividers I made! Well, during that whole time I was getting contractions, but they weren’t consistent enough to make us think anything of it. We went to church and out to dinner and by the time I got home they were relatively close together and getting stronger and stronger. We made sure that our bags were packed, although Jeremy was convinced it was a false alarm! Finally at about 11pm I could not just sit there in pain anymore. I called the hospital and they told me to come in and get checked, so off we went! At about midnight I was at a 3 so I was admitted because the contractions were coming every few minutes. Thankfully by 3:30 I had an epidural and was nice and comfy! Jeremy was able to get a few hours of sleep. I, on the other hand, could not at all. My blood pressure thing went off every 15 minutes and nurses came in all the time, which is fine, but that doesn’t bode well for nap time! Emma’s heart rate would start to randomly drop if I laid in one position for a long time, so I had to switch around and then they put me on oxygen too. Then, I got a fever. It was all sorts of lovely! By 11am on Sunday I was at a 10!! YEAH! But, I didn’t get to start pushing until 2…. and then I FINALLY had her at 4:26pm! She is PERFECT!! We are so in love with her, I just can’t describe it! Yesterday she had her newborn pictures (by Arlene Cloud from Little Altars) and they came out amazing. Here are some for you to just “oooo and awwww” at!
