We made sure that Connor was in his Easter finest for the 1st drive home!

J's hubby Ry posting here. Without further ado, here is the story of Connor's birth. After waiting a week and no baby, we went to the Midwifes for the check. Knowing that we could have waited another week before they would induce, J and I asked, why not do it today? That was at 4:30 on Tuesday the 7th, at 7:00 PM that night, we were checked in, by 7:30 the nurse induced J. Fast forward to 3:30 AM on Wednesday, and the contractions started. No matter how hard we wished, Connor refused to budge. At 9:00 J got an epidural. Later that morning, the team knew that he was not budging and we all agreed on a C-section. At exactly 12:01 on Wednesday, he came out yelling at the top of his lungs. I cut the cord, and the nurses and doctors took a bunch of pictures. J had minimum side effects, Connor needed some lights for jaundice, and we all came home on Easter Sunday, which turned out to be the best Easter present J or I could have hoped for.
