The Story Of Madeline's Birth
On Friday the 20th of February, at Mommy's last doctors appointment, we were told by the doctor to come to the hospital the next morning at 8am to be induced. Unfortunately, they were too crowded and we were rescheduled for the next day. Since we weren't going to the hospital that day, we decided to go to breakfast with Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Chris. On his way to Grandma's house, Daddy got into an accident and, although he was not injured, the car wasn't so lucky.
The next morning Dylan and Liam went to play with Grandpa and Uncle Chris while Mommy and Daddy went to the hospital. By 11 am the first contractions started and the pain medication was requested. A little after 3pm Madeline decided she was ready to come out and after only about 3 pushes she was born at exactly 3:30 pm.
It was a relaxing birth and dare I say... easy??! No complications and no stress resulted in a very relaxed, calm baby. Madeline cried for about 5 seconds and then decided to just "take it all in" for about the next 3 hours. She did not close her eyes once until around 7pm.
