Wednesday March 10, 2010, I started having contractions around 10 a.m. I convinced myself that I was ok and could make it through the rest of the school day. They slowly got closer together and somewhat stronger. I decided to go by the dr. on the way home, just in case I had progressed some. (I wanted to have warning). When he checked me I was at a 4 1/2! He told me to get my husband and go to the hospital, that I was going to have the baby tonight. I immediately started crying and panicking. I guess it started to seem real to me. We got to the hospital around 5:30. Even though my contractions didn't hurt, I went ahead and got my epidural because I didn't want to miss the "window" of having one. Best decision I ever made! Can't believe I didn't get one with the other 2! Labor was a breeze. My inlaws, sisters, boys, and sisters-in law stayed in there until time to push. We just talked and you would have never known I was in labor! My mom was still in VA with my brother so she couldn't be there. =( Around 10:30 the nurse called the dr. and said it was time. He rushed there, and 2 pushes later at 10:36 p.m. we welcomed Madox Caid Plunkett into this world! He weighed 6 lb. 10 oz. 19.5 in. looking just like his older brother Cooper. We're so blessed to have this new addition to our family!
My sis had her baby today! Kypton Andrew made his way into the world at 1:23 p.m. He weighed 7 lb 8 oz and was 20 in long. The same measurements as my sweet Cooper! Here we are at 7:00 this morning. Until today I was anti-epidural. Kim convinced me that it was the greatest thing in the world. So, I'm getting one too!
Here's the sweet babe. He looks just like Kim!
Big Brother Daeton. So sweet. He kept rubbing him saying "baby". They're only 19 months apart, like me and my older sis.
Here's the happy family! Doesn't she look awesome for just going through labor?!
**On a side note, my brother's wife was induced yesterday morning early. She wasn't progressing so the word was that they were going to do a c-section tonight at 7:00. My mom just called and she's now at a 9!! They live in Virginia so I won't have pics. =(
I have been married to my AMAZING husband Ty for 7 1/2 years. We have three beautiful boys, Trevin, Cooper, and Madox. I teach kindergarten, so I am blessed to be a stay at home mom in the summer! Some of the things that I love: sewing, crafting, playing with my kids, blogging, taking pictures, the Razorbacks, dates with my hubby (though they're few and far between!), shopping, Pottery Barn, hot chocolate on a cold day. I am obsessive about organization and keeping a clean house. Most importantly I love to go to church. The Lord is our family's foundation, he takes care of us through impossible situations.
