Short (not too gross) version of the birth story:
We went into the hospital Saturday night (November 1st) to get some stuff checked. I’d been having painless contractions for several hours, about 8-10 minutes apart. Turns out my amniotic fluid was really low, and the doctor gave us two options: either stay overnight on an IV drip and try to get the fluid back up, or induce. Because I was having regular contractions, and was already slightly dilated, the doctor predicted I’d be back within a day or two in active labor. We decided to induce, and started the induction medication around midnight. Several hours and one glorious epidural later, Felix Magnus saw the light and entered the world at 8:32am.
