8: YOUR BIRTH STORY | Your Arrival | I went into labor at 2:00am on Friday, March 11, 2011... the exact same time a very memorable earthquake hit Japan. We weren't sure whether to go to the hospital because two weeks earlier you tried to grace us with your presence but you decided you weren't ready. At 8:00am we finally made the choice to head to the Henrico Doctors Hospital. When we checked in they said we would have you in our arms by dinner time (which was perfect because I was starving and couldn't eat until after you came). Since it was such a busy day in the news time passed quickly. My water broke at 10:00am and thats when I decided to get an epidural. I had the easiest pregnancy with you so of course you had to give me trouble somewhere! The epidural didn't work and stopped all contractions so they gave me pitocin to speed things up. Your little heart didn't like the medicine so they had to turn it off and I needed help breathing so they gave me oxygen and inverted me. Then I got a fever because you weren't in a lot of fluid and needed extra medicine to keep us strong. I had 4 doctors that day. #3 wanted to do a c-section but #4 said she was sure you'd come on your own. at 10:30 they decided you were ready and we had you in our arms by 10:59pm. Your dad was brave and cut your umbilical cord! After your arrival the details are a little hazy. I was bleeding a lot and it took a while to stop. Once we were all better your grandparents and aunts came rushing in so they could welcome you to the world. You were the most beautiful baby! Around 1am they took you to the nursery and you had some trouble breathing so they had to intubate you and we didn't see you again until 8am. So many family and friends came to welcome you. You are truly loved! | MEASURMENTS | BIRTH DATE: March 11, 2011 | BIRTH TIME: 10:59 pm | POUNDS: 5 | OUNCES: 12 | INCHES: 19.25 | DATE__________
