I had my son today at 3:04 pm! Bowen Xavier Hollis. 20 inches and 7 lbs 8 ozs.

I went to the ER yesterday cuz i was having heart issues. (Nothing outta the ordinary for me during pregnancy.) I got cleared for that and was sent upstairs to L&D to make sure everything was ok with the little man. Lo and behold, they started catching contractions. And i was progressing.

I'll admit- i opted for an epidural. My water broke by itself but the contractios weren't progressing me fast enough- i was 6 hrs in and had only reached 4 cms. Well, turns out the epidural didn't even work and i went thru the next 8 hrs natural anyways! Boy, was i super glad when i finally got him out lol.

We are happily lying snuggled in the post partum room and he's trying to nurse. Wish me luck, mommas. :) I'll add pix in the replies.
