Spencers birth

Here is the story of Spencers birth!!!  I am so excited to finally have this little perfect baby boy in my arms.  He was 1 week late and my doctor decided to induce me! alex and I went to the hospital Tuesday afternoon at 4:00p.m. to get things started!!!  I wasn't having any contractions, so they put a balloon inside and blew it up to make my uterus contract.  I ate dinner, which was so yummy.  I had chicken parmeasean with pasta.  Alex went and got pizza!!  We watched the bachelorette to help time go by faster, I then got a sleeping pill, and slept until 5:30 the next morning.  I then was so anxious, so I curled my hair and did my make-up, little did I know I would be in bed ALL day long!  I went back to Labor and Delivery room and then the started the pitocin.  I started to have light contractions and I didnt want any part of that, so I got the epidural, right away.  I rested up the rest of the day, Ilene came to visit, so nice of her.  Before I got the epidural, she and Alex could see my contractions on the monitor, so they helped me through them!  Anyways I got to drink alot of water and had ice chips and flavored ice.  Finally the doctor came in at 4:15 and checked me.  I was fully dilated and ready to push!  She said we would start pushing in 15 minutes.  I quickly touched up my make up and curled my hair nice! then i pushedfor an hour and you were out.  They  placed you on me and then daddy got teary eyed!!!  you were the most precious perfect baby I had ever seen.  the nurses took you away for a bit to clean you and put some clothes on you!!  Then you came back to me and we started breastfeeding!!  You were so hungry, and got the hang of it right away!  They took him to the nursery for the rest of the night because I was so tired and needed some time to recpver before they would let me go back to the postpardom rooms!     We were in the hospital for 3 days, they took such great care of both baby and I.  We got to spend alot of time together.  I am so happy to have this baby.
