An introduction to our newest addition Ryann Marie Marco

Ryann was born, October 7th, 4:19 pm, 6 lbs 15 oz, 20 in of pure sweetness!

I had an appointment on Friday to see my doctor. Previous appointments I was already dialated to a 3-4cm (those of you who don't know) you start pushing at 10 cm. So I was well on my way. My dr asked me if I wanted her to do the "good" check or the normal check I will save you the details, but of course I said the good check and then she said "well there goes your water, you will now go into labor" I was so excited! She said go get your stuff and head to the hospital. So I called Tim and he called his mom to make her way down to milwaukee to watch D. OUr wonderful neighbors took him in the mean time and we got to the hospital about 1:00. I said immediately I want an epidural, and told them that I went pretty fast with my son so there was no time to waste. He was on his way to give another epidural so I would be second in line. At about 1:45 the contractions were getting more and more painful and I was at a 5. By the time the dr. came in I was in much more pain and contractions were getting worse. I was then at a 7. He administered the epidural and slowly the pain lessened. About an hour later I called the nurse in because I was still feeling a lot of pressure in my buttom and I thought I need more medication. She said let me check you, you may be ready to push. And yup 3:45, I was at a 10 and ready to push. My dr came in about 4:00 and scrubbed up, I pushed twice and there she was! It was so smooth. 4:30 Tim and I looked at eachother and were like "what the hell just happened?" It was so fast!

Our Ryann so far is such a great baby, easy, and going from 1 to 2 kids was WAY easier for me then going from 0-1. (I am aware there is still plenty of time for the "**** to hit the fan" but so far so good.  Donovan is absolutly in love with his sister, wants to hug, kiss, be by her all the time. It is so adorable! We need to work on the amount of pressure we are applying during hugs and kisses but it is a work in progress. We are so blessed to have everything to have gone so smoothly and have this princess in our lives! We couldn't be more in love!
