So here's the whole story (minus all the icky stuff).
Saturday my sis, Emily, went to the hospital because she thought her water broke, but it was a false alarm. She was sent home then later began having light contractions.
On Sunday Emily began having more contractions and her water actually broke this time in the waiting room of the birthing center (good timing). So they admitted her around 2 pm Sunday afternoon. Mom, me and Devin (my 15 year old brother) were down there by 3 after getting our things together knowing it could be a long night... little did any of us know what a LONG night/day it would be.
Hours kept passing and passing. She was only a 1. The rest of the family came which made things more entertaining, but then at around 11:30 pm Sunday night Mike, my brother-in-law, comes out and says that it could be around 12 to 15 hours until she has the baby. O.O was my reaction. Everyone wanted to stay until she got an epideral (forgive my spelling) because she was only a 1.8. So yada yada, she gets her medicine and by 1:30 am Monday morning my aunt, grandma and cousins head out and will be joining us later around 8 am.
So Devin and I just run home to let our poor dogs run outside and check animals and stuff. We get back to the hospital around 3 am then pull the chairs together and sleep for 3 hours. We get woken up at around 6:45 am by Mike calling to say she's a 6 and starting to push!! I'm like finally something's happening!!
Then...at 8:04 am Monday November 13, 2006 Lydia Annabelle was born 7lbs 2 ounces, 20.5 inches.
Since my sister had an epideral for so long Lydia was a bit sluggish and after nursing actually stopped breathing...so short break down but my mom said it was totally normal because it happened to my younger cousin. So then by 9 am I got to go see my sister and hug her (she's my younger sister so it made it harder to see her in so much pain and I can't help her). Then at 10:45 I got to go see this beautiful face!!!
