Jackson is here!
Fri, 10-05-2012 - 7:42pm
Short version: born 10/3/12 at 9:29 pm 8lbs 4.4oz 20.25 in long.
Long version: went in at noon on Wednesday to be induced because I had been walking around for a week at 5cm. They were busy so they didnt start anything until 3pm. Start pit and around 7pm got the epi and around 8pm I was 7cm so she broke my water. Got kinda funky after that because my BP kept dipping. Had 3 doses of epinephrine before it started to level out. Few minutes later two nurses came rushing in telling everyone to leave "in case baby does that again" I had no idea what she was talking about and just started bawling. Apparently his heart rate dropped. It all worked out though because it was time to push which is what caused the drop. 3 pushes and he was born!! We are totally in love with this little fella!!

I wish we could post pics from phones! Boo on that!

Congratulations!  Glad the baby's heartrate didn't cause problems.  I had the low bp also with the epidural, no fun at all throwing up until they got it stablized.  I love the name Jackson, too!  It was one of the first boy names I picked, but DH didn't like it.
