Nicole and I arrived at the hospital around 7:30 this morning. We were anxious about the days events. After all, we've been waiting for this day for the last 9 months. Nicole was induced at 9:00 am, and got her epidural at 11:00 am. Things progressed slowly at first, but at 4:00, her nurse checked her and told us she was dilated to a 4. Shortly after, she was a 6, then an 8, and within 45 minutes, she was fully dilated and 100% Effaced. It took Nicole two contractions with three 10 second pushes during each contraction. Creed popped out and Nicole's doctor and staff immediately took him to the fry warmer and cleaned him off and got him looking good for his mom. The pictures of Creed are literally 5 minutes after he was born. Nicole did such a wonderful job with the whole thing. Such a trooper!
Cole, Savannah, Nicole and I are pleased to present Creed William Strong. Welcome to the family little guy!
