What does Labor Look Like?

it all started with 10+ hours at home – contractions spent on the birth ball, in the tub and on the toilet (yes really)

So I’ve been taking a trip down memory lane as of late looking through old photos. DON’T ASK ME WHY I AM LOOKING THROUGH MY PHOTOS, IT’S CHRISTMAS OK? So anyway, I was looking through pictures and I found a file on Jerry’s profile that I had completely forgotten about. My labor! Obviously, once Oscar was born, we skipped straight to baby pictures, but we. all. know. that I worked for that cute face, so lets have a looksee shall we? I spared you the pushing pictures. You can thank me later.

Jerry was amazing throughout
we made it to the hospital and Jerry and Christina (our Doula) are working my sore muscles
My sisters hopped in the car and drove 3 hours as soon as they got the call! And here I am hooked up to the monitors for a few minutes. These were on and off the whole time, but mostly off which was nice.
I LOVE this picture. My support. 
I still lean on you.
Well Oscar didn’t come out the old fashioned way, but he sure made an entrance!
Proud parents, then and Now!
