Janet, congrats on your new little one! I had such a sense of deja vu reading your story. The exact same thing happened to me with my 3rd -- decided reluctantly on the epidural and then went from 4 to ready to push in a half hour once they put it in. The difference is that for me the epidural did finally work just as the baby crowned and I was able to pant through contractions until the dr. drove across town to deliver. Not my easiest delivery, but definitely an experience. Can't wait to watch the little one grow!

I read every day but have never commented. I just wanted to tell you that Katelynn is one of the most beautiful newborns I have ever seen. And I love all the photos of each one of the kids getting to hold her. So beautiful, again!


Glad it went so well for you. That is a gorgeous picture of you and Katelynn leaving the hospital. Enjoy your time at home. The marathon is coming (speaking from experience - we have 4 and the no sleeping with 3 other ones was a challenge). I will pray for lots of cat naps for you, and for Katelynn to be a good sleeper for you.

Awww Janet she is just precious!! Reading your story made me think back to when I delivered Kyle just 10 months ago - he popped right out just a few minutes after my epidural was put in so I didn't get to enjoy it's effects either! Only my OB didn't quite make it in time lol - she missed it by less than a minute though! Congrats on your new baby girl!

Thank you so much for sharing your birth story with us, I am actually sitting here with tears in my eyes! I think once you have experienced that miracle moment (even though there is a lot of pain involved) it is just such a time of blessing. Brought it back like it was yesterday and for me it was 25 years ago!! lol

But let me tell you GF you look AMAZING, seriously!

Love the photos and really loved the one of the kids playing with Katelynn in the background.

Hope you are having a great day and I am praying for calm, comfort and blessings on your family :)
