Jaxton Jace Briggs

December 8, 2008
8lbs 4oz 20 inches
He is finally here!! I really thought that this day would never be here. I went in on Sunday night to be induced because I was 10 days over. When I got there I had been having contractions all day about 20 minutes apart so they just gave me a small dose of Pitocin. My contractions got close together but not very painful at all. By the time I got an epideral I was at a 4. At that point I was able to sleep and the next day at 11:30 my water broke on its own and then everything went pretty fast from there. I was dilated to a 10 at 4:00 and then pushed for an hour and a half. For some reason the epideral decided to not work at the end so the last 3 hours of my labor was super hard but I DID IT!! He was worth every bit of it!!
