Supernova's Birth Story

On Nov 8th we went into the hospital to get induced at 6am
they started me on the pitocin at 7am.
by 9:30am it was time to break my water.. which REALLY hurt by the way. Big daddy missed this part becuase I had kicked him out to go get a snack since i would not let him eat in the room>
I had texted back and forth with the girls all morning but when i called the only thing they cared about was if thier brother was here yet. True devotion. However BigGwrl did tell me to be brave.
then the anesthesia came in about 10 to give me my epidural. Following the same pattern as last time my bp dropped and I threw up all over the place. Luckily we were ready this time with the trash can and meds.
HOWEVER the epidural never quite kicked in. Tiny T and her family stopped by to pray with us and then it was time to check mommy again.11am. I started feeling light headed and sick to my tummy again my bp dropped again so more throwing up and more meds. We still hadn't gotten to the pushing stage so nanna came in for a bit to say hi. We kept paging the anathesia dr. to come back but he was busy then he forgot to come and give me more meds. By this time the contractions were so bad I knew it was time to push. We kicked Nanna out and called the Dr. the anathsia dr. to come back and we called the girls to come up. The nurse checked me again and sure enough it was time. 11:30 the Dr. and the anethesia dr. both walked in together I got an upper for my epidural but by then it was to late for it to work. By 12:18 after LOTS of pain! Supernova had made his entrance into the world. He was pink and perfect in every way.
He is 9lbs 7oz
We are all so in love with our new family member!
