The Birth story of Lewis...

Saturday, April 4th 
12:30pm- dilated 3cm and told to get admitted to Banjara Hills The Birthplace hospital 

2:30pm - contractions 2 mins apart

5:20pm- epidural, 4-5 centimetres, doctor broke water

6:45pm- 6/7cm, told to push at each contraction 

7:15pm- started pushing with each contraction 

Contractions and pushing was extremely difficult for this mommy! An anesthesiologist stood on a stool so he could push hard on my abdomen each time I had a contraction…All while my sister Liz was on FaceTime…Bill and Liz were amazing cheerleaders!

Heart rate started dropping and the doctor acted fast on using forceps 

8:07pm- Lewis William joins our family! 7 pounds, 4oz and 49 cm. Cord was wrapped around his neck and he had some liquid in his lungs. Lewis was on oxygen for a little while and met me for the first time about 1.5 hours later. Praise God! 

Big brother was called and super excited to have a little brother, ran around singing "I have a brother!!!"

God is so good!

A SUPER PROUD big brother!!!
