Here is the birth story of our darling Kara Mae.
Our neighbors got Kirsten and took her to preschool and offered to keep her until my parents got into town. Who Kirsten would stay with when I was at the hospital and how she would handle it really worried me. I am so thankful we have such awesome neighbors, so I knew Kirsten was in good hands.
Finally around 7pm my contractions were becoming stronger and regular. By 8:30 they were really painful (i remember what time it was because I was trying to watch the Bachelor :) I knew we were finally getting closer. With Kirsten I went into labor naturally so I didn't experience pitocin contractions, but I found out everyone is right when they say contractions are much more severe when induced. Those last couple hours were ROUGH!!! I am so glad I stuck it out though! Being able to feel everything happen was awesome and empowering!
