Well, with Ryan's help of course. ;-)
Let me introduce to you Dillyn Marie Wiksten.
Born 8/19/13 at 4:35pm, weighing in at a slim 7lbs 3oz, and 20 inches long.
She is the most precious, amazing gift I have ever seen! I love her so much!
Basically, contractions started Sun morning at 2am, but they weren't bad, so we waiting until I was more sure that I was in labor. Some time Sun evening, around 5-ish, I 'thought' that my water broke, and contractions were 5 min apart, so we headed to the hospital. Well, long story short, my water didn't break. So they sent us home. We got home at about 10, I changed clothes, Ryan got a beer and I laid down. Sure as shit, then my REAL water broke. So much for one more nights good sleep!
The contractions got significantly worse. And by 11pm I couldn't take it and we went to the hospital. They admitted us, and we started the whole labor thang.
Again, long story short, I made it to 5am Monday before I got the epidural, then ended up starting pitocin......well sometime. I don't quite remember.....epidural, remember. OH, wait, first they tried to get me to dilate more by trying some balloon thing. I won't get into detail. You're welcome. THEN they started pitocin. That went on forever. The balloon made me a 4, but after that, it was hours before I changed again. We were coming up on the '18 hour' mark, and there was meconium in my water (meaning baby had a bowel movement in my tummy), and they, the Drs, really want to get the baby out before the 18 hour mark. Crunch Time.
Then, as if Dillyn decided enough was enough, the Dr came in and was like, 'Holy Shit, your a 10!!!' Well, thank you Doc. Thank you very much.
I started pushing, and 29 minutes later, our little bundle of joy entered the world!
Everything went perfect. No complications or anything. And by Tuesday evening we were back at home.
Wyatt has definitely taken on the roll of 'big brother'. Any time she cries, he's right there. In the middle of the night he keeps Dillyn and I company while she feeds. He gives her soft little kisses, and I KNOW loves her as much as we do!
