Last Friday night, I went to the hospital thinking I was in labor. I was having contractions every 3-6 minutes for over 2 hours, but they weren’t very painful and I didn’t progress any from a 3 while I was there so they sent me home. I continued to have contractions all weekend randomly and finally Tuesday night at 7:20 my water broke. I got to the hospital and by 10:30 had my epidural. I progressed from a 3 to a 9 within 2 hours. I started pushing around 4 am and 29 minutes later Jackson was born. It would’ve taken a lot longer had the doctor not been able to turn Jackson around the right way inside my womb. He was facing sunny side up just like Jocelyn was.
Here we are before we started the delivery
At birth, Jackson was 8 pounds 3 ounces, 20.5 inches long

I made Jocelyn a big sister bag full of goodies for her to play with while she visited us in the hospital
I have more photos to share of Jackson a little later.
