On October 18th (Heather's birthday) she had an extra special surprise, here water broke at about 10:20p.m. So she and Eric went to the hospital. Heather thought she would try to labor without an epiderel....big mistake....after 7 and a half hours she got the epiderel and things felt much better for about 3 hours until the epideral boost button, that you push when you begin to feel pain again, quit working. So the contractions were very painful until the anisthesiologist came in to give her a direct dose again. Well all in all after about 18 hours of labor and only 4 cm dialated they decided to do a c-section. Hailey was turned down how she should be, but laying on her side instead of looking downwards so she was going more like at an angle instead of straight so it was hindering the progression. Anyways, We are just so happy she is here and is healthy and very strong. Being parents brings more joy than anything else in the whole universe. We love our Hailey so much and feel so blessed to have her!!!!
