Story: I was having labor pains all night and decided, Well I have a doc appointment at 9:30 a.m. and I will just go and see what they say what my progress is. I went to work at 7 a.m. and kept asking everyone, "Are ya'll HOT?!" I was burning up. I went to the doctor with my mom and was 4cm dilated! They sent me straight to labor and delivery at 10:30 a.m. I was hooked up and everything at 11 a.m. They broke my water, gave me my epidural at 12, and I started pushing at 1 p.m. Sweet Mattelin Grayce was born at 1:07 pm.
They called the doctor who was running through the halls and made it just in time to catch her body. Her head was already out and they told me not to push anymore, but little Mattie did not want to wait. She came out with a head full of black hair and weighed 8.5 pounds and was 20 inches long. Mattelin was greeted by her mommy, daddy, and BIG sister Teylor!
