Here is what you have been waiting for : ;)


heather went in at 5pm yesterday (april 30th) as you all know. she wasnt administered cervidil (to ripen her cervix)until about 7pm...when she got to the hospital she was 2 cm diliated. the cervadil immediately caused contractions and worked on ripening her cervix and dilating her more. ....i think it was about 11pm-1am ...the cervidil was removed and she was fully ripe and dilated to 4.... and officially in labor!! she napped through the night until her OB came in to get things going ...at 5:30-6am this morning she agreed to an epidural ...and was given pitocin to speed things along....at 8am she was at 5....and wasnt expected to deliver until the afternoon....but, at 10 am she was at 8!!!! and at 11:15am she was at ten...and was ready to start pushing.....she pushed for about 20-30mins and painlessly delivered an 8 pound 1 ounce....21 1/4 inches long Aydin Eli Isaiah Thompson at about 11:46am..... my sister and nephew are doing amazing....he is the best baby ever...he has a full head of hair and hasnt let out a cry since he has been around his mommy!!! and he is the light of her life!!! she is going home on Thursday...she has to stay atleast 48 hours after delivery bc of the group b strep....and she is torn up pretty bad and had to have a lot of stitches that took 50 minutes to mend bc he came out so quickly...and he was so long....he was definitely overdue...but may have been earlier than the april 20th due date...due to his skull not being as soft as typical newborns...the doctor said he came out perfectly and looked like a c-section baby bc his skull did not flex in anyway to make it more easier coming out on her and him (which is why she got torn up pretty bad)... i am sure she will be on sometime in the next few weeks....i am not sure how soon. she is focused on spending time with her new man....and healing up!!!

thanks you all,
Christy
