Isaac Braden Driscoll Is Here!


After a CRAZY CRAZY pregnancy our beautiful son is finally here! Isaac was born on his due date March 31,2009 and weighed 8lbs. 6 ounces and was 21 inches long. He is just perfect!!

My birth story....

On Monday March 30, 2009 I just felt different! I went to pick up some Mexican food and doughnuts for lunch (YES! I gained 55lbs) for me and my kids because I didn't want to cook and clean. When I came home we had a annoying gas alarm going off. I called Braden and he said he would come look at it later because he was in a meeting....UMMM WHAT?? What if you come home and we are dead? I was so tired and decided to turn on a movie for the kids so I could try and take a nap on the couch with the stupid alarm going off. 30 minutes later I woke up to what felt like water coming out of me. I wasn't for sure until I walked around and had a BIG gush. I was nervous because I knew I needed to get to the hospital because I tend to go really fast when my water breaks. (I went to the hospital at a 7 with Lauren not knowing for sure if I was even in labor) I called Braden to tell him to get home my water had broke and he didn't believe me. He thought I was trying to trick him to come home and fix the alarm. He came home we packed and left to go to the hospital. I WAS HAVING NO CONTRACTIONS!! (EMBARRASSING MOMENT....I put a pad on hoping that would be enough to hold the water on the way to hospital well Braden was making me laugh in the truck and it was gushing out all over. By the time I got to the hospital my pants were soaking wet and neither of us had a coat. I had to walk up to labor and delivery with wet pants down to my knees!) 6pm They checked me and I was a 1 and they gave me cervadel. I walked around the hospital to get my contractions going and at 10pm I was a 3. At 11:30pm they started the pitosin. My nurse asked me if I wanted a epidural and I told her no because I was feeling good and she told me I better get one because the anesthesiologist was going home. At 12:30 the anesthesiologist came in and gave me an epi and it was a dang good thing because 20 minutes later I was a 10 and the baby was coming. I pushed through 3 contractions and at 1:14am Isaac was born.

Congrats again! He is SO CUTE! I can't believe your water broke and you were only at a 1! That is crazy! I had that same little outfit for my baby boy when he was so tiny (**sigh**). Dang, I have 2 five month olds and just seeing your little guy makes me so baby hungry! He looks so sweet!
