Rachel Anneliese Heiss

So, this morning when Nancy woke up, she felt a little contractionny. She went to her last day of work, even getting taken out to lunch at the Brick Oven by her department. At 1:30 she IMed me in a panic, saying she didn't feel very good. At all.

I left work early and we went home. On the car ride there, she was having contractions like every 5 minutes and was in crazy pain. We stayed at home for about 15 minutes until she was crying and cringing with pain.

We got to the hospital at 2 and were immediately admitted.

She was already dilated to 9 cm.

Epidural went in (actually a spinal thing...not the official epidural) at 3:20ish.

Good progress the whole time.

Rachel Anneliese Heiss born at 5:22 PM, July 20th, weighing 7 pounds 7 ounces, 19.5 inches.
