And this is his story...

At 10pm Thursday night (9/25/08) Guillermo drove me to the hospital due to my 5 minutes apart contractions. When we arrived I was dilated almost a 2. Unfortunately hospital policy says you must be at least a three to stay... so we were sent home. Around 4am I woke up to severe back labor contractions I walked around the house, took a couple warm baths and rolled on my workout ball for 5 hours. Finally, around 9:30am I woke up Guillermo to tell him to start the car, "It's defiantly time". Around 10am the nurse checked me, and I was almost dilated to a 5. "Yea, we're having this baby possibly by this evening"...so we thought.
Making jokes at 5 centimeters!!
Within a few hours I was a 6, three hours later I was an 8! It was looking GREAT... only two centimeters to go! We all thought this baby will be born around 6pm! Doc came in and broke my bag of water because I was so close. Two hours later I was still an eight WHAT??? Two hours later I only gained a half centimeter. WHAT??
After a few shots of pitocin, and a total of 29 hours of LABOR (no epidural)

Levi arrived Saturday morning September 27th at 8:59am.
