Saul Esaias Weeks

Our little Saul was born: Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 10:22 pm. He weighed 7lbs 12 oz and was 19.5 inches long. He was born exactly two weeks early. My water broke at home around 5:00pm I started getting contractions around eight. I decided to have this baby NATURAL. This means no pain meds. Well, around 9:30 I was thinking to myself:" I am the biggest IDIOT on EARTH! Why am I doing this to myself? Give me DRUGS!!!" But of course it was too late. It was a very overwhelmingly painful but wonderful experience. I had a wonderful midwife and the nurses were very supportive. My midwife Helene let me labor however I wanted. She kept telling me that I was almost there and that I could do it! She said to listen to my body and that I would know when to push. I delivered on my hands and knees on the bed and I DID know exactly when to push! Birthing is an amazing thing. We love our baby and I am very grateful to my Heavenly Father for answering every one my prayers. Every one!!!!. I am indebted to Him.
