Mommy and Addison
Sunday, August 7, 2005...At approximately 12:15 am I was still 5 cm dilated, so my nurse said she was going to run upstairs to do some training. She told me that there were other nurses on the floor and to call them if I needed anything. At that point, I figured it was a good time for nap. After resting for twenty minutes or so, I started feeling lots of pressure. Looking around the birthing suite I saw my mom, dad, brother, and J all sleeping and not wanting to wake anyone, I thought I'd wait a little while before calling a nurse. That lasted about five minutes before I had to call for a nurse. Our nurse, Lauri, was still off the floor, so another nurse came and checked me, then informed us that I was fully dilated. Lauri was called back to the floor, Dr. Ross was called, and two pushes after Dr. Ross arrived, Addison Clark Starr was born at 1:38 am. She weighed 6 lbs. 10.6 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long. She was the most perfect baby I had ever seen!
