So on Ron's Birthday...
I go to my appt thinking nothing, but knowing I can't walk. I literally regret not bringing Mr. J b/c I was hunched over walking to my appt. Nurse does an exam and says, "Holy Cow... the baby is saying hello he's so low. I think you should just get checked by labor and delivery." As they hook me up to the monitor in L&D, I have my VERY first contraction. This is 11:15 a.m.
They were 4 minutes apart from the START. I call Mr. J and say... you might want to come here FAST. By this time, I knew I was going into labor b/c I had uncontrollable tears from the pain and the emotions that go along with it.
I also BEG FOR AN EPIDURAL!!!
THEY TELL ME NO EPIDURAL b/c I would go too quickly.
Getting that news w/o Mr. J there was very hard. I was so scared, lost, and well... terrified. They tell me I need to start pushing as soon as I feel the urge. I kept lying and saying I felt nothing although I knew it was already time but my husband wasn't there, and I wanted them to think I had time for an epidural.
Mr. J finally arrives... I'm screaming, I'M NEVER DOING THIS AGAIN!!!
Bloodwork comes back and they get an okay for the epidural.
Dr. tried to insert it 3 times unsuccessfully as I'm going through absolute HELL to sit still through contractions while getting poked with the longest needle ever. My water breaks!
Holy crap... everyone is saying GRAB YOUR KNEES MRS. J!!!
I kept screaming, NO!!!!!!! YOU GRAB MY KNEES!
I'm not difficult.
I kept swatting at the midwife b/c I felt like she stretching me out and kept YELLING FOR HER TO STOP! She says she's not doing anything. 5 people hold me down and 3 pushes later... Baby Joshee (what we call him and I don't mind if folks call him here) arrives.
Did I mention that from start of labor to delivery.... it had only been AN HOUR AND FIFTEEN MINUTES. Delivery being less than 5 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY SMOKES, a lot happened in that time period!
The nurse and my husband told me it was baby J's head coming out and she wasn't even touching me. I apologized for swatting at her and to the nurse on my left who I grabbed her belly roll and twisted with all my might.
Anyway, I just got home 30 min. ago and feel completely out of it. Of course I had to immediately post, but now I just want to relax. Uterus contractions for a second child is the pits.
Did I mention I had 0 minor or major tears?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RON!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY JOSHEE (born 12:31 p.m. on the 18th of Jan)
I like this one. This was him "rootin'" when it was feeding time. That's when they search hardcore (by shaking their head back and forth) for the bottle/nipple in hopes to run into some milk.
Big J came to visit mommy and brother Saturday morning.
Heading home!! Giving the nurses one last wink.
Thanks for all the support you guys have given me leading up to the CRAZY day!! Guess I shouldn't expect anything else when my son is born on the same day as Ron
Oh, he was 6lbs 14oz
I think we all must have checked for an update today
at least 100 times - I am so glad you are both well!
HE IS GORGEOUS! You must be so proud. And little J
looks like he is thrilled too. He will be a great big brother.
Glad you are home and now the pain will go away pretty
quickly. Rest and relax as much as you can - you already
know the drill!
CONGRATS to the whole family!
|HE IS ONE GOOD LOOKIN DUDE GET SOME SLEEP|
|Mrs J, Joshee is so beautiful. Nice and healthy and pink. I love the pics of him and he looks so big until the pic of Little J next to his new baby and Joshee looks so teeny.
I am glad labor/delivery are behind you now and your new family has begun. Lucky labor was so short, even though I am sure, at the time, it didn't feel that way.
Get some rest, yes I know, like you can with a new born baby.
Take care of yourself. Sheepie/Aussie hugs to all!
|Baby Joshee is so adorable! Lil J looks pleased sitting next to him - what a big brother.
I am so happy that everything turned out well.
Those are great picures of baby Joshee too - very handsome little guy.
|CONGRATS!!!! and Welcome to the world, Joshee!!!
He's gorgeous Mrs J! Good work!
Okay I was one day off with my guess, but I did day 38 weeks.

|BTW...I logged in and saw all these storks floating down the pages..with "JOSHEE"..............Very cute!!!! Love the was Ron decided to celebrate "jaycee"s birth!!!|
|Congratulations and welcome baby Joshee.|
|OMG he is so beautiful and his Brother is so delighted to see him.
You did AMAZING. With my first son they had sent hubby home. I refused to push until he came back, the midwife was telling me off and said I had to push. I was screaming at her No not until he comes back. 6 am in the morning they couldn't wake him up, he was asleep on the sofa! They got hold of him midwife said get down here bl...dy fast your wife is refusing to have the baby until you get here. Hubby came and they put me in a wheelchair and ran down this long corridor with hubby tearing behind us. I can laugh now. Second son was piece of cake 2 hours from start to finish but as you said the contractions after the birth were so painful.
Sorry I am rambling but I love icky tiny new babies!
|Congrats on the new arrival, very cute thanks for the pics.|
WELCOME TO THE WORLD JOSHEE!!!!!!!
He is beautuful. So happy for you all.
|Congratulations, Joshee is beautiful and Lil J looks so proud

|We knew it! We knew you couldn't go that long without posting something!!!|
What a beautiful boy, that Joshee is!!!! Lil J has been promoted to Big J now, and he looks very happy about it.
All in all, that was a very fast labor! I'm a bit upset you had to go and give birth on Ron's birthday! We'll never hear the end of that! Thanks for not naming him lil Ron! (Note to Ron...LOVE THE STORKS!!!!)
Mrs J, Mr J, lil J and Baby J...congrats, long life, L'chaim and MAZEL TOV!!!!
|Congratulations hon!! What an gorgeous baby!! I am also so happy that you had quick delivery with no major issues.....feel bad about the epidural though, at least it was quick!!! Once again, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!|
|Congratulations! He is beautiful, not the often smushed face babies.......but then he didn't take the LONG RIDE down the canal to get all smushed.
Hope his breathing clears quickly.
What a beautiful baby!!! Lil J looks so happy to be a big brother!!!
PS Ron...I love the storks!!!
