Tank made his entrance at 10:49 p.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2011!! He weighed in at a whopping 8 lbs. 6 oz. and is 19 1/2 inches long!
My labor was (blessedly) very short. I woke up Saturday morning with my usual, occasional contractions that had no rhyme nor reason to them. The only thing different was that I had them first thing in the morning, whereas they usually came on midday or early evening. Because I did notice that difference, I did pay attention to them, but sure enough, as the day progressed, they disappeared!
With church the next morning, I decided to head upstairs early, so a little after 8:30 I went into the kitchen to make myself a sandwich before going up. As I opened the fridge door, my water broke!! Contractions started within 20 minutes, we had a 45 minute drive to the hospital, and about 40 minutes later Tank came into this world!
Welcome Little One!
