I honestly didn't think time would work on our side, and half expected them to have the baby before I even got there on the 6th. I showed up, and Krista was still pregnant. We went swimming and then after dinner started to call it a night. (I was pretty tired from the plane ride). At about 9pm, Krista's contractions started getting really bad. At around 11pm, Blake told me they're going to the hospital. I rolled out of bed and threw on some clothes and headed to the hospital with them.
The next few hours were a blur. I hit a wall around 3am and fell asleep on the hospital couch in the delivery room, and faded in and out of sleep for the next couple of hours. At 6:30, I got Blake and I some coffee. Krista's contractions were pretty bad this whole time, prohibiting either one of them from getting any kind of sleep whatsoever. At around 8am she started pushing, and at 9:20, little baby Lucy was born! 8 pounds 6 ounces.
It was a wild experience, and my first time ever witnessing a birth. I was pretty familiar with the whole process, so nothing came as a surprise. I actually was expecting it to be a lot grosser than it actually was. Of course, I didn't post any gory pictures for the sake of general consumption, but I'm pretty happy about these "in between" and "after" shots of the birth.
