Welcome to the world, baby boy!

William Friedrich 

Born: March 3, 2012 @ 19:48
Weight: 3780 grams - 8 lbs 3 oz
Length: 53 cm long - 20.866 inches.

The short story: I was hooked up to the IV line and started induction with Pitocin at 11:20 AM. Around 12:00 PM is when contractions started. At 2:15 PM I received a low-dose epidural. At 4:45 PM I received another low-dose epidural. At 6:00 PM the Pitocin was turned up and I started pushing. At 7:00 PM it was turned up again. And at 7:30 PM it was turned up yet AGAIN. The epidural was completely gone when I delivered. So, pushing lasted just under 2 hours.

It was hard work, but I am very happy with the results. I will write more (the long story) about the labor and birth later. :)
