Finally!

Benson Drew is here! September 21st 4:04 AM (3 days late)


Here is the rundown:
3:00 am wake up....3:56 Check into hospital....4:04 baby born(8 minutes after check in...the Dr. almost didn't get his gloves on) Everyone is healthy and happy.

7lbs. 10 oz.
19 inches

Although Sarah was begging for an epidural there wasn't even time for an I.V. so it was definitely natural but not by choice. I'm just glad I didn't have to deliver in the pickup(oh so close).

At last the baby came! Late, but in a hurry. What does that say for future personality? :) So are you going to tell Maren that she was named after the prophet that was in the 116 lost pages?

WOW - congratulations! Does he look like me? When does Sarita and the babe go home from the hospital? Good job

Sarah, I am deeply sorry you were too late for an epidural...you are a brave woman. But I guess you had no choice right, baby Benson was coming out no matter what! I hope you guys are all healthy, happy and doing fabulous!

Kristi said...

PS-It's experiences like this that make me scared to have a 4th child...Will came really fast, and I'm afraid I wouldn't make it to the hospital with the 4th! Hahaha!

Lani said...

Congratulations! I'm excited for you and glad you didn't deliver in the truck!

Susy said...

Congratulations!!!! First he makes you wait and then he says ready or not here I come! Hope you're all doing good and home by now.

Congratulations!!! Benson shares a birthday with Zaiden...who was also natural and not by choice but lack of time. Maybe it's something to do with the date, haha. He is beautiful!

Weren't we just talking about delivery with no epidural? you did it! I can totally imagine your drive to the hospital. Allison was born only twenty minutes after I drove up to the hospital and I thought I barely made it! You were even closer, good job! We look forward to seeing him in person.
