On June 16, 2011 Syd and Shane welcomed their first baby boy into the world. Syd's blood pressure got really high to closer she got to her due date so they decided it would be best to go ahead and induce her. Syd and Shane checked into the hospital around 8:00am and Syd was 1.5cm dilated and 80% effaced. They gave her a quarter of a capsule of Cervidil to help start her labor. 1:00pm she was at 2 com and 85% effaced, moving slow but making progress. They gave her another quarter of the Cervidil. We hung out in the room and watched a movie and had lunch and then decided it was time to go for a walk. While out walking the halls her water broke at 3:24pm. She was still 2cm when they checked her after her water broke. Thing started to pick up and Syd went into full blown labor with lots of really fast really strong contractions. At 5:00pm she was still 2cm and 100% effaced. Things got very intense and Syd decided to have an epidural. At 6:00 they came to give her the epidural, after they were finished and she was resting more comfortable they checked her again at 7:00 and she was 9cm. They told her to rest up because it was almost time to push. 7:30pm all set and ready to push. Syd did an amazing job and at 8:20pm baby Jameson was welcomed into the world. He was 6 pounds 13.9 ounces and I think around 20cm long. It was an amazing experience and I'm so grateful I was able to be there with her. Love you all, congrats!
