Yesterday around 4AM, my wife decided to wake me up to tell me that it was time to have our daughter. My first reaction was to throw her the car keys and tell her that I would meet her there after a few more hours of beauty sleep. However, I realized that this day marked the last day of a long stretch of emotional outbursts, spur of the moment crying during certain commercials, and massive stops for bathroom breaks anytime we went anywhere. We arrived at the hospital 30 minutes later.
Our first daughter had us in the hospital around the same time frame. She arrived in the world around 10AM. Since this was our second child, we were expecting this to be sooner. Boy were we wrong. Our doctor was in the office and was waiting for the call from the nurses telling him it was time for him to come in so Connie could give her last push. 10AM rolls around, followed by noon, then came 5 PM. 5PM just so happened to be when my doctor got off of his shift. Luckily for us, he decided to come to the hospital to see what the hold up was before he went home for the evening. He runs a check on the baby and thought that head was positioned above the pelvic bone instead of below. He then had my wife change postions to see if this would have the baby assume the proper birthing position. Upon moving to her side, the doctor decided to check again. 5 minutes later we were preparing for an emergency C-Section as he realized the baby was coming out butt first. Thankfully everything went smooth after that. However, Hannah did have some cuts on her bottom as her butt had rubbed up against the pelvic area for quite some time. My wife is doing great as well.
Around 6:10PM yesterday, I was pleased to announce the birth of Hannah Mae Hall.
7 Pounds, 14 Oz. (Little over 3 burritos). 20.5 inches long with a crazy full head of dark hair. I'm going to need to run a check on the mailman or perhaps the store manager of my local Chipotle. To think that I've lost 57 pounds now while most guys should be putting on their sympathy weight. Another testament to the Chipotle diet.
