So, I guess even doctors make mistakes. But regardless Nicolai Augustus arrived 8:03 am Wednesday November 22. We will call him Nico. He is 8 lbs. 8 ozs and 21 inches long and he looks amazingly like his brother except he is so quiet (well, compared with Sebastian of today not newborn Sebastian). I did go to the birth center but after a while they decided to transfer me to the hospital for an epidural to get things progressing further. They said it must have been the car ride to the hospital that did it because I arrived there at 7:45 and you see what time he was born. My midwife delivered me because the doctor hadn't arrived yet which meant a lot to me. And even though I did end up delivering in the hospital it was completely natural, no medication, no IVs. And the hospital was so much better than the one I delivered Sebastian at. We were able to be released after 24 hours and so now we are home, safe and sound, though exhausted and kicking ourselves for not realizing that everything would be closed on Thanksgiving. Even fast food joints. But the grandparents are on their way bringing turkey and potatoes. Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday and welcome to my new blog.
