I am here...I am alive...apparently my computer at home has been hit with a virus and I cannot get to my blog...so I am at my mom's right now just to give everyone an update (without pics unfortunately).
Tuesday, Feb 21st around 1:00 am, I started getting contractions on my own. After much debate, we called my dad to come and watch Maddy...then headed to the hospital. When we got there around 3:00 am, they hooked me up to monitors and said we were there till we had him. I won't get into details but all I will say is...it was brutal. My first labour was induced and only 10 hours...this one I had higher hopes because everyone told me the second will be quicker etc...well guess what...WRONG. I endured 22 hours of labour without epidural. Technically I had an epidural but it didn't take and therefore, I felt everything. I wouldn't dilate, I wouldn't progress, nothing was going right. When it was finally time to push and his head came through, they quickly realized that the cord was wrapped around his neck. Panic mode set in and they basically ripped my baby out of me. Owie.

Maddy is a great big sister so far - she loves to help at bath time....but she
also has her moments when she just wants us to do things with her...anyways, Hubby is still home another week and then we will be on our own.
I hope to get my computer fixed so that I can get on my blog from there...till then...I am still alive and well!
