So I had my check-up at 39 weeks and it went great! I was dilated to a 3. I asked my doctor if I could get induced since Cameron and I are moving in the middle of August and he said that is fine. And the best part is that he said he could start me the next morning! We were so excited and nervous at the same time. These two pictures were taken right before we went to the hospital. This is me at 39 weeks.

And Cameron at 39 weeks

We arrived at the hospital at 7:00 AM

Can't you tell how excited my husband is about being a daddy.

Alright so we came to the hospital at 7:00 AM and at 7:00 PM I had only dilated one more cm. Yeah I was only at a 4! So the doctor told me that I could get some real food since nothing was really happening so I asked my mom if she could bring me Wendy's and within minutes after I was done eating I started getting contractions! I was in so much pain it was unreal.(Can't you tell by the picture) I was able to get the stuff that takes the edge off but it didn't take enough of the edge off for me. I went from a 4 to an 8 in thirty minutes! By then I was begging for an epidural and I was lucky to get it because by then I was dilated between a 9 and a 10.

This is me after I got the epidural. Life was great.

Yay!!! She's here Takoma Aria Ruppe came to us at 10:45 PM on Wednesday the 29 of July of 2009. She weighed at 6lbs and 9oz. and 20 in. long. She was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. When the doctor put her on my chest Takoma peed on me. Not to mention she peed like a boy, not kidding her pee was like watching a Old Faithful go off. I had to make sure she was a girl because I had never seen a girl pee straight up before. Well Done Takoma!

She is so precious!

We are now a family!

Here are the nurses that helped with the delivery. We have Becky to the far left
Jennifer on my right side, she was my nurse for the evening and we have Susan on
