We welcomed Jackson Dallas to the world on June 24, 2008 at 12:14am. He weighed 7 lbs. 12oz., was 20 inches long, and was 3 weeks early! I went to the hospital Sunday evening June 22 with regular contractions and was sent home about 1:30am Monday morning. At 8am Monday June 23, my water broke and we were on our way back to the hospital. By 7pm, after 11 hours, they gave me an epidural and medicine to help strengthen my contractions. By 10pm I was fully dialated to 10cm and began pushing at 10:15pm. I really thought he would be here on June 23, but after pushing for 2 hours, Jack made his arrival on June 24 at 12:14am.
