My Christmas Surprise!

NIKAIL STONE

Nikail ... Origin: Hispanic  Meaning: Royalty, Beauty, Exotic, and Mysterious 
Stone ... inspired by "Stone Phillips," and means for me "Strong or Hard"



What a christmas surprise! My son made his debut into this world on December 24, supposedly due on January 2.  I checked into the hospital at about 5:15 and he was born at 7:37AM, weighing 6 pounds and 4 ounces. Proud to say, that I breathed through the pain, delivering him all natural, vaginally and without meds ... the epidural! This delivery was short yet very painful.

Unlike with the birth of his sister 5 years prior which was 20 hours long and painless, cause I decided to have the epidural. But don't think for a moment that I had the chutzpah to deliver him without at some point begging for an epidural ... it just so happened that by the time I called for it, I was already 8cm dilated but as the anesthesiologist prepared, within seconds in what seemed a lifetime, I was shouting, "I feel him coming!" LOL! ... And yep, in that instant I was on the doctor's count to pushing. 2 pushes ... and he was out!

Thankfully, I was released from hospital after 24 hours, having missed christmas eve Santa's duties, but relieved to be home Christmas Day with my family! Since then I've had my hands full, totally readjusting to a newborn.
