We successfully gave birth in a foreign country and language and made out with a beautiful healthy baby boy! Jesse, Sammy and I left the hospital today and are glad to be back at home. I do have more pictures to upload . . . but that will have to wait. We're all pretty tired and we're trying to take advantage of Nana being here to help with the house, Renae and of course all the baby holding duties.
I will say that I'm anxious to write all about our experience and to wrap up the Giving Birth in Spain series. This birthing experience was 180 degrees different than Renae's-all in a positive way! It was a GREAT experience, exactly what I needed and wanted, and I feel 100% better after the birth than I did with Renae. I'll write more about everything later but I will tell you that I woke up Wednesday morning at 5:15 to a strong contraction. By 6 am I noticed they were coming at regular intervals and by 7 am I was tell Jesse to hurry up with his shower because we needed to GET TO THE HOSPITAL. We arrived shortly after 8 and Sammy was born at 12:08! I'd say 7 hours was pretty darn nice compared with an over 24 hour birthing experience with Renae!
Sorry there are no new pictures. I'm getting ready to head to bed soon. Our phones are turned off and we're going to lay low the next few days. Check back later! Thank you to those from home who prayed for all the stuff I asked you to pray for-God was so good!!!
