Olivia's Arrival

Olivia Claire made her own arrival on Mother's Day. May 8th at 4:22am.. weighing 5lbs 15ozs, 19in long. She is a little peanut...but brings so much joy to our household.

So, Saturday we chilled out with Lily Anne. Went for a walk in the cool morning, Mich and I talked about the changes that were coming on Wednesday. We played in the back yard and soaked up some sun and Lily Anne enjoyed the kiddie pool.
After dinner and putting Lily Anne down for bed. Mich told me I could relaxed and sleep in on Sunday. He and Lily Anne will be making breakfast and I was so happy! So I took a nice bath and got ready for bed. After the bath, I started having braxton hicks, SO I THOUGHT! But after 45 minutes of them not stopping. I grabbed a bottle of water and some Coco Pebbles...yeah I know. But I thought maybe I need food and water. Nope...nothing was helping. I grabbed my cell and starting timing them. The contractions were all over the place. So I told Mich that I was in some pain. After about a few more, it became unbearable and brought on some tears. I called the Dr. and my parents. Then called my best friend Crystal to sit with Lily Anne (who was sound a sleep) at the house until my parents arrived.

Once at the hospital, the nursed checked me and said "oh, you are about 5cm, you are staying and do you want a epi?" yes! please. So, L&D Room 4... the anth..came in to do the epi, saying "wow she is so calm and queit for someone who is 7/7.5cm" I thought WTH...then I figured the nurse lied to get the epi quicker. Which I did not complain. Well, bust my bubble. The nurse told me once the epi was in that I truly was 7/7.5cm and she did not want me to freak out.

So after 3 hours....Olivia Claire came out as beautiful as can be. We were so proud!!!!
