Nichole is here!

On October 2nd, 2007, baby Nichole joined our family. She wanted to come early and quick! Two weeks before her due date, and we almost did not make it to the hospital (even though we thought we had all the time in the world).
Our new baby girl.
We were parking outside the hospital at 7:15. I had been squatting through my contractions because I thought it felt better. When Ellie was born, we thought she was coming soon, and we spent ALL DAY at the hospital, so from previous experience, we thought we had a long time and 5:00 AM seemed too early to go. So we showered, I did my hair and make-up since I was determined not to be ugly mom :)
As we walked in to the hospital they took me to a room where they hook you up to determine if it is true labor or not. I think the nurses thought I had a long ways to go. As the nurse noticed my contractions were very close together, she decided to check how dialated I was. "About a 9!" she said, "I will be right back." Andy and I were not sure what to think, but she came back with MANY nurses and they told me not to push yet. They took me to the delivery room and my midwife walked in, then she said, "You can push if you want now." And Nichole was born at 8:22 AM after a very short labor!
I am ready to push!
Yes, a chubby baby. 7 pounds 9 ounces
Isn't she beautiful?

We love you baby Nichole!
