Reagan Olivia Lantz



Here's the birth story. I started having contractions 2 a.m. on Friday morning. We went to the hospital at 9:30 and after walking around for two hours and only being 1 cm dilated, they sent us home. Well, my contractions weren't letting up so we went back to the hospital at 5:30 and I had progressed to 4 cm. And my pain was progressing as well. I immediately asked for an epidural once they admitted me. However, I had to wait about two hours before I was on the top of the list. Whoo...those were not a fun two hours nor was the epidural process fun. Apparently I had a tight back with very little fat so I had to be poked several times. It was well worth it. I felt nothing after that! It's easy having a baby when you don't feel anything.

Can you tell this picture was before the epidural and without my consent


After the epidural and very happy!



The epidural did not slow my labor down. I progressed to 10 cm in about 2 hours and was ready to push! I pushed for about 20 minutes and out she popped at 11:48 (I think-I still need to confirm that). She weighed 6 lbs. 15 oz and was 19.5 inches long. George was an awesome support to me. He watched the whole thing and even cut her cord!
