New Little Girl!

So we are finally done being pregnant. Bridgette Kate was born on April 2, 2009 @ 10:50 pm she weighted 7lbs 9 ozs and was 19 inches long. Not too bad for being 2 weeks early.
So the story of having the baby - Thursday I was taking Elaina back to daycare from school and it was snowing and slushy as I got out of my car I slide and fell on my butt. Not that big of a deal. I went back to work and about 3 hours later I just didn't feel good and wanted to sleep. So I left work and went home to take a nap. I called Andrew to tell him that I was sleeping and not to bother me and he somewhat forced me to the doctor. I went in and they started monitoring me but didn't think that it was anything major but wanted me to go the hospital and just be watched for a few hours. So I was there and just hanging out the nurse came in and checked me and I was at a 3 (no big deal). But right after that I started having contractions that were about 30 secs apart. They weren't really bothering me so I didn't think much of it. Now you have to remember that my husband was not here so he kept calling wanting to know if he should come home. About 20 minutes after the contractions started the Doctor came in and said that we would either need to stop my labor or start it and because I fell and the contractions were so close he decided to break my water. I called Andrew and said "get your butt here cause we are having a baby." So he started on his way and they broke my water. Now in past babies after this point it would take about 5 to 6 hours and they usually give me pit. So I wasn't too worried that Andrew wouldn't make it. But after 3 hours they checked me and said that it was time. I managed to wait for another 45 minutes but than had to push. She only took about 3 good pushes and was here. So as you can guess Andrew didn't make it. I had Bridgette with my Mom and Mother-in-Law there with me. My dad was also there but I made him leave for the actually pushing part. So it was pretty sad that her Daddy wasn't there but what can we do. He was 50 minutes late and so sad that he wasn't there. But he has been home for the last 10 days and just left today to go back to WY so now I get to be a single mom with 4 kids. Anyway, that was a long story hope that I didn't bore you to death. For anyone else stilling having kids make sure that your husband is close by and that you have a clue when you are in labor.

I am so sorry that Andrew missed it. :( The same thing happened to me a year ago. I had a little girl on April 2 and my husband was in California on an internship. My neighbor was the one with me in the hospital because my mom couldn't make it from Idaho. I guess my advice to others is to not have a baby on April 2 unless you don't want your husband there. :( She is so beautiful!
