Cute outfit that both of my kids liked to bring him home from the hospital in. Both of my kids love music and think they are rock stars.
Mason decided to come while I was working a shift at the hospital. It was Labor Day and I was scheduled to work 15-03. It had been quite a shift-with staffing issues and some one on one patients. At 10:30 pm I told the charge nurse that my contractions were 10 minutes apart and I was going to need to leave. I called Matt to have him find a sitter for our kids and told him to meet me at Jordan Valley Hospital. I told him my contractions were 10 minutes apart and I wouldn't make it home to turn around a drive to the hospital. I drove myself the 10 minutes to the hospital and checked myself in. After connecting me to the monitors my contractions were 3 to 4 minutes apart and I was dilated to a five. Matt arrived shortly after and I was given an epidural. I had to have penicillin with this delivery and the nurse gave me the first bag and between bags she had to stop my saline and start a new bag. The remainder of the penicillin continued to go into me which really, really, really hurt and I passed out completely. It scared both the nurse and Matt. I came to with all kinds of people leaning over me and giving me oxygen that it also scared me a little until I knew what had happened. Not long after the episode I began to feel a lot of pressure and had the nurse come and check me again. I was now dilated to a 10. The nurse called the doctor and she arrived a short 15 minutes later. I began pushing and after 3 contractions and some pushing she had me stop. He just kind of slipped out after that. He was precious and I just couldn't wait to see and hold him.
Aiden woke up that morning to see grandma at his house and was informed he was a big brother once again!
