Easy Peesy Lemon Squeezy

My BUTT!  Emily here.  What an eventful day we had yesterday!  We were called in early to induce labor at St. John's. That was good because I was waking up every hour waiting for that call.  We got to the hospital in good spirits.  The games began around 8:30am. That's when I got the first dose of Pitosin to get the contractions going.  They were very manageable but I was reassured that I could get an epidural at anytime to stay ahead of the pain.  I did this with Isaac and literally felt nothing the entire labor. I was happy and able to enjoy every second of the experience.  I planned on having a similar experience with Asher's birth.  So I got an epidural when I was around 4cm dilated.  This really slowed down the labor but that didn't stop Dr. Anstey from pumping up my Pitocin levels to uncomfortable heights (he got in a fight with my nurse about it)!  That should have done the trick to keep the progress going.  Slowly but surely I was dilating but Asher didn't seem to want to come out.  There were many threats of C-Sections and Anstey let my epidural wear off to almost zero pain relief.  I have no idea how I managed to get through that birth process.  I take that back, it was obvious that all of your prayers were the reason that my last two centimeters went in record time and the fact that Asher came out without a C-section. So thank you God for the true miracle of birth.

Seriously, did you see that picture with the nurse holding up Asher?!  He's huge!  But SO beautiful.  We had a really good night.  He's eating well (would you expect anything else with this baby?) and making the most precious noises.  You've got to come meet him.  Call before you come just to make sure we're not in the shower or feeding him, but come on over!

  1. Congrats! The pics made me cry! He’s another cutie just like his big bro:) I hope we can come by & see him before u leave. Hopefully tomorrow if you’re not gone already!

  2. Congratulations Randall and Emily..and Isaac too. We’re so glad to hear everything went well. We can’t wait to meet Asher. Please let us know if you need anything. We’d love to coordinate some food for you.

  3. Congrats! He is a cutie, of course. All Littletons are. What can I say, I’m one and I was one cute baby (after I got past the first few days of life, my hospital picture is horrible!). Well, I hope to meet him soon!
