Keshlyn Jolee entered this world on May 23rd at 4:36 am on a Saturday. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 14 oz and was 20 inches long. (This was a week early...imagine if I had went the whole time! yikes!) Labor went pretty well. 19 hours was a long time, but well worth it. I handled the contractions pretty well. I'm not going to lie though...I got an epidural at 7 centimeters. I wish I would have waited a little longer though...I actually didn't like the feeling of the epidural. I don't like not being able to move my legs- not to mention that at first I also couldn't feel up as far as my boobs! But, by the time I started to push, it had worn off enough that I could move my legs a little and feel all the pressure so I knew when to push. It had worn off A LOT by the time she started stitching me up...yowsers. I had a nasty little tear, lots of stictches and then tore some sutures with the much dreaded first bowel movement! Ouch! All in all though, it was an AMAZING experience. Mountain View hospital was absolutely wonderful. I loved my nurses. They were very sensitive to my needs and were like my very personal cheerleaders encouraging me along the way. Ok, so enough about me....I know, I know. You want to see Keshlyn... So here is our little love muffin!
