Trey Brian Meeuwsen was born today at 4:51 p.m. He weighed 7 lbs. 1 oz. and was 19 inches long. He is just perfect...with a little stork bite like his brother had. :) Here are a few pics and below the birth story. Yes, Jenni made the adorable matching shirts. :) Carter LOVES his little brother so far and was more into him than I thought he would be. It was so sweet.
Birth Story---I went to the Dr. yesterday and not much was happening. We actually were going to get induced next Monday if nothing happened by then. I was due this Saturday (the 24th). This morning about 3:30 the contractions started and were pretty steady. We got to the hospital at 9:00 and the Dr. came in at 1:00 and broke my water. Then the contractions got pretty intense pretty fast. I had the epidural around 3:45 and unfortunately it was a little late b/c he came at 4:51 already. With Carter he took a long time so I wanted to hold off on the epidural as long as I could. After both of my experiences of the epidural wearing off with Carter and now it not kicking in fast enough I am pretty sure I could have done it without drugs! Anyway, he came into the world screaming and it was so fun to be able to hold him right away, have Brian cut the cord, etc. b/c with Carter he came out not breathing and it was scary! Our families came tonight to see us and now its time for bed as I am sure tomorrow will be busy! We are so blessed and can't wait to see our two little boys grow up together!
