Birth Story

Kohen J. snow

4:49 pm
7 lbs 13 oz
19 1/2 in. 

I went to the DR for my weekly appointment two weeks before my actual due date. I was dilated to a 4 and Chalmers said I was going to go into labor any minute, he stripped my membranes for a second time and sent me on my way. On my way out he bet me that if I hadn't had the baby by Friday he would owe me a dollar. Time seemed to be moving in slow motion and Friday came without me having a single contraction, so I went back to the DR to get my membranes stripped for a third time. When he checked my I was dilated to a 5, and my uterus was bulging so Chalmers decided to send me over to the hospital! I called JK and told him it was time and to the hospital we went! Chalmers came and broke my water and I instantly started having contractions. They then started me on pitocin which sped up the contractions even more. Contractions were soon only 30 seconds apart, so they took me off pitocin in hopes to slow the labor down, but no luck. Contractions continued to be 30 seconds apart. When I couldn't stand the pain I asked for an epidural but the DR was in an c-section and couldn't come yet so I just had to wait. I honestly didn't know if I could do it. When I finally got the epidural and they checked to see what I was dilated to, to everyones surprise I was at a 9 and ready to push. The nurse hurry and called Chalmers over and we got the family there just in time. All it took was 4 good pushes and little Kohen came into this world and changed our lives forever. The second I saw my baby boy I knew he had my heart forever. It was such an amazing experience for JK and myself and I am so lucky I have such a supportive husband who was so caring for me even when I was being a little brat when I was in so much pain. Kohen looks just like his daddy when he was a baby and i may be biased but i think he is the cutest little thing in the whole world.
