Decided to join us at 6:41 on Aug 3rd. Weighing in at 7lbs 2oz. 20 1/2 inches long.
She did a great job...
I wasn't there but I have been given the task of trying tell the events of the past 30 hours (or so). Laura had been one miserable pregnant lady and was reaching her wits end from passing her due date by only a few days. She read online that castor oil would speed things along. Sunday she went for it. I didn't hold much stock in this technique but along comes 10pm Sunday night and her water breaks. Timing or oil?
An epidural to ease the pain gave her some relief throughout the night.
By 6am I get a ca from Kim that she should start pushing within fifteen minutes or so.
I then get another call by 6:45 saying that Elle was born. I ran from the bar to the kid's condo to spend the night with the girls so that Kim could be at the hospital.
Not much sleep and an emotional day make for one tired Doug...
