When it came time to pushing I was really numb from the waist down because of the epidural. I didn't know if I was doing a good job pushing or not. I couldn't even feel in my stomach that I was pushing b/c of the numbness so I kept asking everyone is he coming out??? I did eventually feel some pressure but no pain from him entering the world. Again, thank goodness for epidurals!!! I was crying from happiness the whole time I was pushing thinking THIS IS IT, I'M GOING TO BE A MOM ANY SECOND!!!
Mommy did get an epidural which was amazing!!! She highly recommends them. "SMILE" Everyone who was there says Mommy was being pretty funny once the epidural kicked in. Above was during a break in the contractions after she had the epidural.
Here's Daddy taking care of Mommy. He was the only person Mommy really wanted to look at during labor. Mommy relied on him entirely He held my hand and would talk to me and help me get through each and every contraction.
Here Mommy is with my mom and dad (Grampy Shervanick and Grandma Shervanick) They were both so excited to meet you. At this point I was beginning to feel the contractions but was o.k. in between the pain.

Here I am waiting for them to exam me to see if in fact my water had broke And when the result was YES it had broke they strapped on a little bracelet and I was ADMITTED!!! They said they were going to induce me and give me pitosin because they didn't want me to go to long after having my water broken without having you. SO TODAY IS THE DAY!!!
Mommy on the way to the hospital. You might notice Zeus on my lap, we took him and Zoey to Grandma Shervanick's on the way to the hospital to stay with her and Aunt Jody until we getting settled at home with you. Your proud Daddy taking me in. It was so odd not being in active labor on the way to the hospital. I always imagined being in huge pain and having to yell at Daddy to drive faster!!! I felt completely fine like nothing had ever happened. It was so odd. I walked into the hospital from the parking lot, carried one of the bags, it was so weird. I was still thinking, "Is this really happening?" Am I going to have this baby today?
