    I just thought I'd share some of my pics from the hospital. I'm so glad my husband took pictures of this special occasion.

    Wed. 8pm
    I went in to be induced, so I was in no pain at all.

    My mom was telling me how it was going to be so painful and I was just like "whatever you say mom!".....man was she right though!

    Thursday
    Pain kicked in once they placed the cervidil, as it brought on mild cramping and contractions, The pain was SO bad once they started the Pitocin...I opted for some pain relief that night(Staydol). It made me feel loopy, but I was able to get some sleep(between contractions as it really did nothing for pain).

    Friday Morning

    I was 3cm dilated and my midwife wanted to break my water to speed things up(I was all for it!!) She told me that if I want an epidural then now is the time to get it as there is no way of knowing how quickly I might progress after she breaks my water. I went in not wanting an epidural, but decided to get one after she told me that....pain free and sleep at last!

    Around 4 hours after she broke my water it was time to push and after 45min-1hr of pushing....Ava Hope was born!

    Yea, I wasn't in a picture mood, I can't believe how bloated I looked! :shock:
    I wasn't even really aware of my DH taking the pictures, but I'm so thankful he did! :)
