He's getting so big!!


Today is Chase's 3rd birthday!!


And now to the birth story........


I was induced on November 6th, 2005. We were to be at the hospital at 8am, so of course I was there at 730am. I was sooooo nervous!! My stomach was going nuts all night and all morning and I spent the first 2 hours in the bathroom, you know, doing my business


*** side note: the day before I gave birth to each of my kids, I had a serious case of the number 2's, hmmmm, must be a way for my body to tell me to pack my bags***


So I finally get hooked up to my IV and all my drugs and all that fun stuff.


I was cruising along till about 11am when the mean doctor decided to break my water and kick me into high gear.


All I remember is my hubby touched my foot and I WENT OFF. I think the people in the next room could hear me telling him what I thought.


About 1pm, I got my epidural!! It was magical. Life was good and I was moving right along. I was somewhere between 6-7cm dilated.


At 3pm, I had what felt like the longest contraction EVER. I was getting ready to call the nurse when in came the nurse and my doc. And without even checking me she told me it was time.


So she checked me and yep, it was time....man she is good!!


So another doc I see came in and asked me if a member of the hospital who just so happens to be a big donate could watch my birth. She wanted to see someone give birth then apparently write a big fat check to the hospital.


How could I say no when I have had all 3 of my children here.


So now I have 3 nurses, a resident doc, my OB, my other OB, some rich lady and then in walks in 3 students.


At this point I am so ready to go and meet my son, I really didn't care. I just wanted to see my baby!


So to wrap things up, Chase Allen Lee Wolfe was born at 3:39pm, 8lbs, 7oz, 21 inches long


He was perfectly awesome and all mine!!
