She's here!!!

So we got up on the 15th like any other day and drove to the hospital. We arrived at 10:45 am, Dr broke my water at 11. I recieved my epidural at 11:30 am and then I tried to get a little sleep. I've said before that my favorite part of labor is being all numb/super comfortable and listening to that sweet little heartbeat as I dilate. An hour and a half later that little heart beat stopped and I stared at the monitor and told Adam to run out and tell the nurses. She came in and said "oh that's normal for the baby to skip a few beats when it slides down or there is some other rapid movement." She went ahead and checked me and I was at a ten...she said let's go ahead and push once and then I'll call the doctor. I quickly told her that's probably not a good idea to push, that she should call the doctor ASAP! In the meantime while waiting for the doctor for twenty minutes I kept my legs crossed! He arrived at 1:20 pm, I pushed 3 times...and there she was!
