wasn't that last post wonderful? steven is amazing.
so here's a quick synopsis: labor started late Monday night, and Gage was born on Tuesday at 10:16 PM. during that time we had a few scares: i got a really high fever that made Gage's heart just race like crazy (it was in the 190's for a few hours). that's when we started to worry because our doctor suggested that a c-section might be necessary to keep him safe.
eventually my fever went down and so did gage's heart rate, which was such a relief.
at about 6 PM i started pushing and my epidural stopped working. the anesthesiologist tried to fix it twice, but i ended up pushing unmedicated for a few hours until right before delivery when my doctor gave me a spinal block to numb me for the final few pushes.
steven and my mom coached me through everything and they were amazing - especially when the epidural stopped working and i went a little delirious. they got me through and i really couldn't have done it without them.
one cracked tailbone and a few stitches later, gage was put in my arms, and it was the happiestmoment of my entire life.
since then the recovery has gone pretty well. gage is doing great - he is so stinking cute. the pictures really don't do justice. but i'll post some anyway.
