Yay! Eliza is Here!

So it's been forever hasn't it? This is gonna be a quick go through because I don't have the time to go over the last three months in detail. This was me in February days before the little one was set to come.
Me inbetween pushes. i checked into the hospital at 11:30 a.m., didn't see my doctor until 1:00 p.m. I had no regular contractions but was 5 cm. dialated. They started me on antibiotics at 2:00 and pitocin at 5:00 then was dialated to 7cm. at 7:30. The contractions were getting really bad so i got my epidural at 8:00. I was 8 cm at 8:45 and they broke my water. at 9:37 p.m on february 17th after 15 minutes of pushing
Eliza Joris Hoy
was born. Joris is like Doris but with a J (obviously). Joris was my maternal grandmother's name with whom Eliza shares a birthday.
