After waiting all night for the cytotec to take effect, it finally did its job. I felt a lot of pressure despite the epidural and paged the nurse. I asked her to please check me and to our surprise the head was right there. The doctor was called in the room and after 3 pushes, Evan George W. came out butt first still in the amniotic sack. Thankfully the placenta came out as well so no D&C was necessary. I wanted to see everything the nurse was doing to my baby. She cleaned him up and brought him to me. It was the most calming feeling. This was the one thing I did not do with Alyssa-Joy and I was determined to hold Evan. Hubby did not hold him but stroked his skin.
Evan was born perfect. Not a bruise in sight. He was the most beautiful baby boy and had a peaceful look on his face. I knew immediately that he was resting in the arms of God.
Though my heart hurts, I know he is in a better place and I cannot wait to see him and his sister again.
Mommy and daddy love you Evan, and would give up this world for you and your sister.
Evan George W.
