Chase Russell Bough Has Arrived!

Chase Russell Bough decided to make an early entrance. Our scheduled c-section date was Tuesday, the 6th, but on Saturday morning I started having contractions. I already had a pedicure scheduled for that morning, so I went ahead and went b/c these things take a while, right? I came home and took a nap with no pains. My mom and dad weren't supposed to leave to come to Wilmington until Sunday morning, so I went ahead and called them and told them I thought they should leave. I also called my brother and sister-in-law who live in Durham, which is only 2 hours away. Thank goodness they could leave pretty quickly because I was panicking about what to do with Colton. After my nap, I had a contraction about once every 30 minutes, if that. So, we went out to eat and came back home, maybe one every 1 hour or so. My parents got here about 1:30am. By the time they got here, I was back to contracting every 10 minutes and then they really came - every 5 minutes if I was lucky. I thought I would go lay down again, since I didn't have any earlier when I laid down. No such luck. At 3:30, I went and got Casey and told him we needed to go to the hospital and fast. I don't know how those women do it naturally. That was the worst pain I have ever felt in my life!!!! Because I was supposed to go on Monday to do blood work, we had to wait to do that before I could even see the doctor. Then, the nurses couldn't find a big enough vein to put the needle in to get blood out of. C'MON!!!!!! Finally, they said we could go back and I saw the man I love - no, not Casey, the anesthesiologist!!!!! I was so happy to get that spinal!!!! So, Chase was born at 6:28 am, weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and was 19 and 1/2 inches tall. He is beautiful and healthy and perfect, thank God!!!!!!! We are home and adjusting to having a full house. My parents are here for a while and then Casey's will be here, so thankfully, we will have help. I don't know what we would have done if we were by ourselves. Here a just a few pictures.
