Welcome to the world Barrett Lee Burgess!
Barrett was born November 20, at 5:39 pm and weighed 7lbs 15oz and was 19 inches long. My water broke early Wednesday morning, at 12:40 am, so we woke up, called my parents (who took 3 tries of calling the house phone before someone answered!), and waited for them to get to our house to stay with Brooks and Keely so we didn't have to wake them up before we headed to the hospital. We got to the hospital about 2:00 am and tried to get some sleep since I was not very far along in labor and feeling minimal contractions. They ended up inducing me by starting Potussin (sp?) around 5 am or so since I couldn't sleep anyway and we needed to get something happening! I started feeling stronger contractions about mid morning. Labor was moving a little slow, but that was ok since I had to get payroll submitted for ACE that morning anyway! :) Finally around 1 pm I was far enough along to get an epidural and we hoped I would progress pretty fast from there like I did with Keely. I tried to get some sleep during this time too since I hadn't slept any since before we left home. I didn't get much sleep and finally a little after 5 they determined I was finally progressing enough to get things ready for Barrett to come! After pushing twice, Barrett was born! While it was a fairly long labor, it wasn't terrible. It actually mirrored my labor with Brooks because my water broke with Brooks at about 12:45 am and he was born at 7:35 pm later that evening. Funny how my two boys were so similar coming into the world, and Keely was very different! It will be fun to see how they continue to compare and differ as they grow up!
