Cullen Newborn Pictures





As with every one of my births (as I am sure with all moms) I had a fun / interesting delivery. I was under the gun to get everything at work wrapped up. I left work around 7:30 pm on Tuesday February 7th and was planning on working the next day until everything was complete and then I was taking myself out of work until Cullen was born. I was tired (due to very low iron levels), stressed and just ready for some R&R before the difficult routine a newborn brings. Anyway, when I arrived home I told my stepmom (who had arrived that day to help out) that I needed to start keeping track of my contractions because they were starting to feel a little more intense than my usual braxton hicks ones. I took a bath to try to alleviate the contractions and they were still consistent. I called my doctor to tell her I thought I needed to come up to the hospital (which was about a 45 minute drive away). She encouraged me to stay put for at least another hour to see if the contractions continued. I told her I did not want to get to the hospital too late to get the epidural and reminded her of how fast I usually deliver. She still encouraged me to stay home for one more hour - which if I listened to her I would have delivered on the interstate! Around midnight we headed to the hospital. I arrived at 8 cm dilated and too late for the epidural. After much pleading from me, they decided to attempt the epidural. Unfortunately it did not have time to take effect and I delivered Cullen without much medical relief - this is the second time (the first was by choice) that I have delivered with no drugs and it is quite painful! Cullen arrived at 2 am. As you can see from the pictures he was gorgeous - of course I am his mom so I would think so! I couldn't be happier to have my third baby boy and he is the perfect addition to our family.

Another eventful birth but another adorable little Lewis baby to show for it! :). I was 8cm when I got to the hospital with Connor and wasn't able to have the epidural, and yes, "interesting" is a good word for it! Glad you made it to the hospital on time. We need to have a big cousin reunion so all the newest babies can meet each other. Hope you're getting some rest over there!! :)
