He's Here! A Double Birthday In Our House!

Oliver Joseph was born at 2:19 a.m. on 06/25. He weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz and measured 22 in long.

After having two very hard yet irregular contractions and just not feeling right we made the 40 minute drive to the hospital I was to deliver at. My husband thankfully got us there in 30 minutes. I started having regular contractions in the car at 5 minutes apart. I was wheeled levitating in the wheelchair up to the Labor and Delivery floor. They explained they needed to check me to see where I was at and found me to be 9 cm and 100% effaced. After laboring for an additional 30 minutes, I delivered. It was a very hard, intense labor, but very quick. My doctor made it in just as I was ready to push. No time for any medications, although I was going to try to go without anyway. Very thankful we took the initiative to get to the hospital even though we were not exhibiting classic signs of labor. God's timing is SO perfect! We are enjoying our littlest little man so much.

Oliver was his older sister's 19th b-day present :) Makes it that much more special!

Pin It!

Congratulations! He's so precious, Andrea. So glad you made it to the hospital in time!

Happy Birthday to your daughter, too. My youngest was born five days after his older sister's 13th birthday. Take care of yourself. Can't wait to see more pictures of that little boy.
