Axel Thomas! (Do you want some TMI?)

I tweeted a bit while I was in labor, but I tried to steer clear of tmi tweets.  No one wants to know how dilated I am, right?  Well if you are a mom, you might be interested in that kind of thing.  I know I am!  So here's a brief run down of my day:

7:00am Show up at the hospital

7:15 Get into the sexiest hospital gown you ever did see (NOT)

8:00 After three attempts they finally found a vein and got me some pitocin

10:00 I started feeling contractions so I asked for an epidural.  I like to be prepared.

11:30 Got me that epidural and spent some time missing my legs.

12:00pm Dilated to a 5

1:30 Dilated to a 9

1:45 Felt the urge to push, never felt that with Olivia.  Didn't think to call the nurse, I knew she would be back soon.  She called my dr and he got on his way!

2:10 My doctor arrived

2:23 Pushed twice, head out.  Pushed two more times, we have a baby!


  1. Congratulations! What a handsome fella!!

  2. Too cute! And you look way too good to have literally just had a baby! Congrats and um... Jealous? 38 weeks here and I can't stand to be me right now. I just want to sit in a corner and cry and eat cheese.... Preferably pitocin laced cheese. Yes that would do the trick ;)

  3. You do NOT look like you just went through labor. What beautiful photos! Congratulations!

  4. Kim - you look freaking gorgeous! And Axel - what a stinkin' cute name. Congratulations! Can't wait to meet him :)

  5. Hooray for babies coming! I like the rundown of your day, TMI and all. :) Congratulations!

  6. he is so sweet! Glad he got here safely. Your hungry tweets were cracking me up. Been there! :)

  7. I could hate you for this birth story, but I like you too much. And Axel is such a cutie! :)
