Elijah spent the last couple weeks in his womb driving mama nuts. Hours of prodromal labor, even having her rush to the hospital a couple weeks ago for an overnight stay only to be sent home. On his birthday he almost did it to her again after she swore this time had to be legit because she’d had other labor signs happening too. She went in to get checked and STILL only 2.5cm! How incredibly frustrating for mama! After she was sent home again, she text me some expletives after having two really hard contractions followed by a water break! Hooray, they had to admit her now!! After her epidural, she was finally comfortable and happy while getting anxious to meet her baby. I arrived when she was 7-8cm to a room full of laughter and jokes! During our small talk the pressure was rising and not leaving. Soon enough she was complete and like the snap of a finger and some power pushing, Eli was placed on her chest! 8lbs and 20 1/4″ with a head of
lacking hair matching daddy. Big brothers couldn’t come up as it was way too late, but they got to FaceTime! I’m happy this birth was much more routine for you than the last and all is well! Great work Liesl and PJ! You make cute boys!
