The moment awaits...

It's 3 am. We were supposed to be in at 9 pm last night, but they didn't have any room so we went home and tried to sleep. They called us at 2:05 am and said to come in. We got there at 3:00 and they put the gel on me at 4:15. I was only dilated a 1 when I got there and was at a 4 four hours later. My doctor broke my water at 8:15 am. Got my lovely epidural (which Ethan left the room for) at 9:15. I started pushing at noon and had Gavin 15 minutes later.
Labor? A breeze. Having an IV? Horrible!! I tell you what, flushing an IV 3 times is way worse than giving birth. 'shudder'.
Final weight 152. Gained 31 pounds total.
With Logan I gained over 50.
Logan's weight and length: 8lbs 11oz 21"
Gavin's weight and length: 8lbs 7oz 20 1/2"
Both were induced at 38 1/2 weeks

Here is my cute pedicure.

Oh my gosh, if that picture of you was taken at 3 in the morning... I hate you. You always look gorgeous, even after pushing a kid out of you! I'm glad your labor was short! Mine was 36 hours, eesh! But I also had 15 minutes of pushing like you did, that's SO nice.
