The Birth of Samuel
By 6am, the nurse told me that overnight my contractions had really started progressing, and were occuring about every 2 to 3 minutes. I was only 4 cm. dilated, but things were looking like they were progressing. By 10am, I was 6 to 7 cm. dilated, and by 11am, I started feeling extremely painful pelvic pressure. I asked the nurse to check me, and I was fully dilated and ready to push. I started pushing, and before long, the doctor came in and took over for the nurse. After two hours of pushing, I agreed to an episiotomy. The doctor said it might be another hour of pushing if I did not go ahead with the episiotomy. Shortly after this procedure, our son Samuel Landon Kuhn was born. He weighed in at 9lbs. 14 oz. and was 21 inches long. We were so overjoyed--it was a moment I won't forget for the rest of my life.
