Tyson Richard Rowley

on July 29th at 5:15 am I woke up and was wide awake. As soon as I decided to get up and walk into the bathroom my water broke and I knew that Tyson was going to come into the world today. I was a little excited and a little nervous to have to go through it but knew it would be worth it. 
I decided to wait awhile so that I could call the doctor's office when they opened and tell them that I was in labor. When the office opened at 8:30 am I called and told them that my water had broken and they told me to go straight to the hospital so that they could start the antibiotics. So we headed to the hospital after I finished packing my to go bag. We got to the hospital and they checked and they said yep your water had broken. So I got all hooked up and they started the pit due to my contractions being irregular. Since we knew it would be awhile for me to have the baby. I sent Justin to swimming lessons with Leah and then he would drop the kids off at my mothers house before coming back to the hospital. This picture is what they wrote on the board when I checked into the hospital. I wanted it for the record. 
 Around 4 pm I was given an epidural and then when it got closer to  6 pm we started to push. Dr. Breitenbach got there right before I pushed Tyson out. When Tyson came out, it was a little scary because he came out blue with the cord wrapped around his neck and was not breathing. The doctor had Justin cut the cord and they quickly took him to clean out his airways so that he would start breathing. It took them 1 1/2 minutes before he took his first breath. The doctor kept asking the nurse if he needed to come over there and help but they had it under-control while the doctor worked on me. Tyson got his color back really quick and they said that he had no problems.
 Tyson was born at 6:14 pm. He weighed 8 lb 14 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. He had lots of black hair. Justin and I has given the name Tyson Richard Rowley after his grandfathers. 
 Dr. Breitenbach and our nurse. She is the same nurse that helped with Keyan's delivery. 
Shortly after Tyson was born my Mom, Cassy, Nichole, and the kids came to the hospital to see the new baby. Leah was sure excited about the baby. 

We are sure excited to have Tyson Richard here safe and sound.
