Trey Jacob finally arrived on Friday June 26th at 11:45 a.m.!! One whole day before his due date! :)
I started having contractions on Thursday night and was pretty certain I was in labor but didn't want to rush to the hospital too fast. I stayed at home and just decided if the contractions got so bad I couldn't sleep at all, then we'd go but I was able to sleep on and off for most the night.
We finally decided to go to the hospital and arrived at 9:30 a.m., had to fill out some paperwork and then wait for a nurse to be ready. The first time a nurse was able to check me, I was dilated to a "6 or 7". They all started working quickly to get everything set up and get my epidural - oh how I LOVE those things! In very little time (just over 2 hours since arriving at the hospital) -and 3 whole pushes- Trey graced us with his presence. The cord was wrapped around his neck twice and he came out very purple looking -at least to me- but the doctor and nurses quickly assured us that everything was totally fine since we had been monitoring his heart rate the entire time and it was always at a good rate.
And he has since proven I had nothing to worry about, he is as perfect as can be!
His older brothers absolutely adore him! They continually call him "the cutest baby in the whole world" and say "He's even cuter than before!"
