The baby is here! Madison Mae Moller was born on March 13th, 2007 at 8:45 a.m. MST. Becky had been having contractions since early Sunday morning when we came to the hospital at 2:30 a.m. for a false alarm. Since that day the contractions got worse and worse. Becky began cursing life (and me), but this was to be expected!
On Monday, she went to the doctor to get her weekly check up. She told the doctor about the contractions and they decided together that she would be induced on Tuesday at 6:30 a.m. This was relief for all of us.
At 4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning I was elbowed and told “I can’t take this anymore!” Even though we were scheduled to see the doctor later, we packed and took off. We headed to the Orem Community Hospital – labor was official. When we got to the hospital at 4:30 a.m. they hooked her up to the machines and confirmed that she was dilated to a 4.
Not long after that the epideral came and petosin was started; things were much better. Both Becky and I took a small nap for about two and a half hours, expecting to be able to sleep for quite a while. Then, at 8:30 a.m., Doctor Young came in to break her water and get things moving. However, to all of our surprise, the water had already broken and Madi’s little head was already starting to appear. “Don’t cough, don’t laugh, and don’t push!” he said as they quickly got things ready. Nine minutes later, with just one small push, Baby Madi was here. She cried a bit as they got her cleaned up but man did she have a lot of blond hair. She weighs 7 lbs. 6 oz. and is 21 inches long. We are really excited.
Her little brother Caleb came to visit at about 10:30 a.m. with Grandma Moller and Uncle Andy. Caleb mentioned, “Ah, a little baby…she’s cute and I like her!” We’re going to hold him to that later! Here’s a few pictures:
