Alright, I'm finally sitting down to post! Hopefully most of you have already seen some pics of Alexa on facebook.
What a wonderful joy Alexa has already brought into our lives! I love looking at her and loving her so much! Steve and I have really enjoyed her and he's being a great daddy!!
So, here's the lowdown. Steve and I went in Friday the 26th at 8:30am. They got us in a room and ready to go so at 11am they started me on pitocin. My contractions had already been pretty regular the last month or so. The pitocin picked up the contractions and around 5pm or 6pm I started feeling them! Soon after that I really started feeling them! I was ready for the epidural (Amazing!) at about 9pm when I was dialated to a 5. The epidural actually helped move things right a long and at 11pm they broke my water. Around 1am I was to an 8 and 3am I was to a 10! They started getting everything ready for pushing to start around 4am. I had Alexa 41 minutes later! I only had to push with 10 or 11 contractions. I was happy about that!
My mom, Steve and I were so excited to see her! What a wonderful help it was to have Steve and my mom there! We stayed overnight Saturday and went home Sunday afternoon.

Alexa has been very alert and happy most of the time. Nursing is going pretty well also.
