Hey!!!! Sontee and I came home today,Sat. So here's our wonderful birth story. Sit'll be AMAZED!
Ok started losing my mucous plug on Sun, the 23rd started having contractions at 3am,10 mins apart. They became very unbearable on the 24th around 9pm, 5-8 minutes apart. We went to labor and delivery only for them to tell me that I was barely at a 1! Went home steadily in pain, laboring(keep in mind that I have not sleep all day and night throughout any of these days,contracting around the clock!) So I had a Dr.s appointment on thursday at 2:30pm. We went to it..., checked in telling them to call us when ready we'd be outside walking through the contractions i'd been having. They called us back there within 5 minutes. My Dr. checked me right away I was at 4-5 centimeters and 100% effaced over night!
My Dr. called labor and delivery and told them I was on my way there and to have a room ready for me. We made it there and I IMMEDIATELY asked for my epidural! After enduring two days of laboring at home, I so deserved it:-)
Well I labored there for 6 hours, from 3:10 til about 9:10..pushed for about 20 mins and my Sontee Glenn started to crown! As his head emerged he was blue, almost purple! cord VERY tight around his neck. My dr. had to give me an episiotomy to grab hold of the cord, one last little push and he was out! They placed him on me for a mere second, then tried to get him to breathe....At this point I was in crocodile tears and delirious. Once they got him stable and did a lil overall check. They layed him on me and let me nurse him and bond with him for nearly an hour.
It truly is so life changing. A love i've never known..,yet longed for my ENTIRE life!
My life has purpose, new meaning, and his name is Sontee Glenn! Who might I add looks Every bit like his father, and nothing like me. Its ok, I LOVE THAT!
He was 8 lbs 6oz, 20 inches long. Born January.25,2007 @ 9:38pm.
The very next morning he got his Hep B shots, hearing tests, and cicumcision. The circ was not as hard for Sontee or I to get through as I thought! He was fast asleep 45 mins after when they brought him back to me.Now a day later and its almost completely healed!!!
We stayed in the hospital two days(although we were told we were ready to be discharged if we wanted after 24 hours). I wanted the extra day to relax, see the nursing consultant etc....
Sontee is such a great baby and I am abundantly blessed that God chose me to be his mommy! He latches on like a pro and nurses effortlessly! I hope that continues!

Here are a couple first and second day pics.....ENJOY! I've made my GIGANTIC leap into motherhood,the wait is officially OVER!!!!!!
