Brooks Meets Braden
Well, as Jeff wrote in last night's post, Braden was born yesterday at 4:35 pm. I was ecstatic when I dilated from 6 to complete in about an hour!! Then I began pushing at 4:10 and he was born 25 minutes later! My nurse was great. She called my doctor and told her I was close. She told me just to sit there for a few minutes as long as I wasn't hurting (and Braden's heart rate was good). However, as I was just sitting there Braden was ready to enter the world and out he came. Thankfully, 2 more nurses came in about that time to help assess Braden and clean him up. Dr. Roberts got there about 5 minutes later and was pretty shocked that I had gone so quick! She finished me up and took a peak at our newest sweet angel. Brooks meets Braden..... he was a little shy with him at first and then Jeff took him to McDonalds and he was really ready to see him.
