He's Here....5/16/08

We'll he's finally here. Thursday night my mom talked me into taking Castor Oil (which I don't recommend nasty tasting stuff) I went into labor a few hours later...contractions started at around 10:30 pm by 11:30 pm contractions were about 2 minutes - 5 minutes apart, we finally called our Doula Vanessa and she told us to head to hospital so we got there after a few choice words from me telling Brett to run some red lights. At about 2am they let us go home since I was not dilating, we got home only to turn around at 4:30 am and head back to the hospital to get prepped for my c-section.

At 7:00 am they wheeled me into the operation room with Brett and our Doula Vanessa. While Grandma Connie (my mom) and Grandma Ginger (Brett's Mom) waited outside the delivery room.

During the C-Section the 2 surgeons started getting panicked and it appears that I had a uterine rupture (from my previous C-section with Mitchell) and had I gone into labor (not the C-Section) I could have lost Easton, died or had to have a hysterectomy. So I think God was looking out for me and that is why my body would not go into natural delivery. I asked the Dr's if the rupture was on my right side as I had been having pain on that side which I thought was a side ache or contractions - Nope it was the starting of the tear.

At 7:24 am we welcomed Easton Clark William Webb into the world. Weighing in at 7 lbs 9 oz, and was 20 1/2 inches long. Stay tuned for more updates...
