2 pushes and ploop…there was a healthy baby! Almost didn’t get the camera in there because it was finished so fast.
Why don’t you go on over and say hi to the newest member of the Fuller Family!
Time to start pushing. Doctor is here coaching. Doctor says she sees a lot of hair on the head!
Things slowed down with the pain relief so Kim is now on pitocin. Things are picking back up. Contractions are 2 minutes apart but not lasting too long. Kim is thinking about writing nasty letters to everyone that said baby #2 would just pop out — 17 hours later.
Ok, can you really “break water”? That seems hard. Anyway, they did it. 5 cm and climbing. Are you going to hang in there all night with us?
Epidural is in. All set to watch some TV. They are coming to break my water soon. Only 4 cm so far.
Since the Doctor’s office closes at 5 PM, Kim figured she ought to stop in and have them see what progress she had made after 12 hours of contractions. Turns out…not much. Same numbers as the other day. The birthing center finally slowed down for the week (101 babies so far) so they said that they would just admit her and break her water if she wants. Yes, please.
So we checked into Casa Longmont United Hospital. Kim is in her gown and ready to roll. Grandma is back at home with Ne Ne.
Will it be a long night?
(Where are the Playboys? Inside joke.)
