Awaiting McKenzie's arrival April 2 & 3, 2008

I went in to the hospital on April 2, 2008 for an induction. I was so happy to have all our family there to support us and HELP us!!! We laughed and cut up in the hospital room for an hour or so and then everyone left to go to our house & get some sleep. Jacob and I toughed out the hospital! The next morning bright and early I began taking the pills to induce me. I was feeling fine and no contracts ( I honestly don't even know what a contraction feels like) around 2 they came in ask me if I wanted and epidural, they said it would be my only chance. I wasn't in any pain but I also didn't want to be! So I went for it. Around 4 the doctor came in ( I was thinking they were going to say we were no where near) and said let's have this baby!!! I don't too much remember much after that, but that it was quick , at 5:10 PM McKenzie was born!! weighing 8.5 and 20 inches long!
