I got my tummy crunchy ice and got checked and I was at an 8! Yeah! They asked if I wanted an epidural and I said no since I was an 8 already. (I had debated on the way to the hospital because I was already exhausted an wanted to sleep that if I wasn't far enough I might give in and get one so that I could rest.) They couldn't send me home, this was really it and I was ready! Stephen texted my friend Alicia and told him this was it and she better hurry! She is the lovely person who took all these photos for me. Dr Lyons got there and I gave a good big push and I was right there. My contractions were only about 5 min apart, so in between pushes it's super akward as everyone is waiting around waiting for my next contraction. Stephen was right there and I was crunching ice and going crazy with pain.
