Cole Thomas Sovereign has arrived!
He has finally decided to join us! Ashley's water broke at 4am on the 29th. We arrived at the hospital by 4:30am and cleared triage by about 5:15. The contractions grew more intense and closer together by about 10:30. She received the epidural (a MUST for her) before noon and was ready to deliver by about 2:15. It took the staff 10 minutes to prep the room for delivery but only took Ashley about 2 minutes of pushing!
Since Abigail was delivered by an emergency C-section, there was an increased risk of rupturing the uterus by going back to a vaginal birth. Ashley came through everything with flying colors!
Cole was born at 2:29pm on the 29th. We weighs 7lbs 4oz and is 20.5 inches long.
Everyone is doing great! We will bring him home Wednesday morning.
