Jakson Earnest Burfitt

Josh and I made our way to the doctor on November 16th to get my blood pressure checked. It was still high and so the doctor came into the room and said, "alright, let's do it. We will induce you today and you will probably have a baby today or tomorrow." Josh and I both just sat there and let it sink in. So many emotions we were both feeling. We went and got our clothes and hospital things and made all of our phone calls to tell everyone the news. We got to the hospital and started my first round of cervadil at 3. I had it in for the full 12 hours and it wasn't really doing much. I started the next round at 6:45 the next morning. I guess it was about 10 that I started having contractions. The nurse came in about 11 and checked me and I was already 3 centimeters. Right then the contractions started coming one on top of the other and they let me get the epidural. Thank the Lord for those!! After that it didn't take long for me to get to 10. We started pushing at 2:30 and had little Jakson at 3:42! How exciting that moment was!! He was a tiny little guy weighing 5lbs 7oz and measuring 19 inches and ADORABLE!!

Our hospital stay was a little longer than expected. He ended up having jaundice and we had to stay from Tuesday until Sunday. I was a little emotional at times and ready to get out of there but we made it! I wanted to let out a "YIPPEEEE" when they told us we could go home Sunday morning. It was probably the best news ever, and the fact that it was our one year anniversary made it even more special!
