Isaak Mathew Luman

He is finally here...Isaak Mathew Luman made his debut on Tuesday November 11, 2008 at 7:34 pm. He weighs 8 pds. 5 oz. and is 19 3/4 inches long. I am definitely one proud mama!!
I had a dr appt at 11:30am on Tuesday and she scraped my membranes I then started having contractions every 10 minutes after that. Then by 2pm they were 5minutes apart so by 4pm we checked into the hospital by 5pm they checked me I was dialated to a 7 almost 8 and was still handeling the contractions great so I wanted to wait to get my epidural. By 7pm the pain was almost too much to handle and I thought I'm done get me an epidural so the dr checked me I was dialated to a 9.5 so she broke my water and at 7:34pm he was here and I had made it without getting an epidural.

YEAH!!! I know that is silly but I wanted to be able to say I did it natural, no drugs and now I can. Honestly I am so proud of myself!!! And no stitches down below! I think this body was made to have babies! Now that I'm done with the gory details here is the little man...


Look at all that hair

I was so excited when I saw there was a new post from you. And you didnt disappoint. He is so beautiful. I can't wait to see him. And I'm guessing that your recovery is going to go pretty smoothly. Man, if all of our deliveries could go like that I'd guess we'd have more children! I"m so happy for you and your family.

Congratulations!! I not one to take a stand on no drugs, but I had Samantha with out an epidural and there is something about knowing you can do it. When Cason came around Jeff asked if I wanted to do it again, I said NO WAY. Isaak is so cute. I love the hair. How exciting. You sound like you are doing great too. I am so happy for your growing family.
