Lucas Gage Carroll arrived September 22 at 12:46pm after 5 hours of labor and like 5 minutes of pushing They started my pitocin at around 7:30...broke my water a couple hours after that, then about 2 hours later I got an epidural that wasn't so great, but better than nothing I guess. Not long after that with contractions I started hurting in my cervix and feeling pressure like I needed to poop. Nurse checked my and I was complete and she had me push 2 times and paged the Dr. They prepped me and I pushed 3 more times and out he came! Thank goodness I didn't have an episiotomy ( I told the Dr earlier that I didn't want one, and he said he wouldn't do one unless he thought I really needed onw), but I did have a really small tear. He weighed in at 8 lbs and is 20 inches long. He was 7.11 lbs today so he hasn't lost much weight, and unlike the other 2 I see no signs of jaundice...I'm telling you he's had like 7 huge meconium poops! He's pooped more in a day than the others did in a week We're getting the hang of nursing, I always have latch issues early on because my boobs are weird.
I'll post pics later, Jerm took my camera to his Mom's today and forgot it over there so he's bringing it back this evening.

Here are pics!
