Tatum Olivia

Tatum Olivia is here!

Her Story:
Thursday night I was having contractions that were pretty consistant so I went in to triage just to get checked out. They checked everything, I was was dilated to 4 cm and they hooked me up to check the progress. After 10 hours and no progress they sent me home. Friday I did my normal mom stuff, cleaned the house and went to Target. That night around 11 pm, I got up to pee and as soon as I stood up my water broke (exploded) ALL over the place. This is my 5th kid and I have NEVER had my water break ever. Usually they have to break it for me. Anyways, immediatly after my water broke, I started getting these horrible aweful PAINFUL contractions. Holy crap I thought that I was going to die. I got to triage, I was 6 cm. After a very painful hour I got my epidural (got stuck in the back twice and now dealing with back problems still...) They checked me again and I was 9cm. Surprise, remember the painful hour. My Dr. wasn't there yet, and I had to push, so I got to hold her in until he showed up (20 min). He showed up and 2 pushes later Tatum was born! This was my fastest labor ever. Not a big fan...

She was 3 weeks early and weighed 7lbs 1oz and only 19in long. She is so little! I have never had a baby this small!
