Quincy Lee Draper

our little one is finally here! on august 19, Quincy Lee was born. 6lbs 4oz 19.5 in.

its kindof a funny story how it all happened. the night before brady and i were watching a movie and i didnt feel well so i sat in the tub then went to bed. i got up the next morning and went to work. i was in a really bad mood cause i was not feeling well and was in alot of pain. but i was the only one there from 8:30-11 so i had to go. the whole time i was there i was in pain but i had a dr appointment at 2 so i just dealt with it. it was pouring rain that day so brady couldnt work and decided to come with me to my appointment. this is the only one he has come to besides the very first appointment and when we found out the gender. i was excited he was coming and thought we could go to lunch after the appointment.

when we got to the dr office they told me my dr was attacked by a house cat that morning and was in surgery! they asked if i wanted to reschedule or see the dr that was there. it was kindof funny because i have already switched drs once because my original dr was pregnant and went on bed rest. i wasnt feeling well so i decided to see the dr that was there. good thing because when she checked me i was almost fully effaced and dialated to a 5. she told me that i was in active labor and needed to go to labor and delivery right away. i cant even explain the emotion that ran through me! i was going to have a baby that day! i hadnt even had lunch yet and i needed to go back to work. all the sudden i decided that i wasnt ready...i wanted her to stay inside! i looked at brady and he was just smiling. we both couldnt believe that it was really going to happen right then. we walked over to labor and delivery and got checked in. i got hooked up to all the monitors and then sent brady home to pack me a bag. (he had been telling me to pack one for days but i never thought she would come early so i didnt have anything ready) while he was gone they put in the epidural and everything was grand after that! within 2 hours i was at an 8 and they broke my water. we waited for about 3 hours and then the pushing began. i pushed for an hour and a half and at 10:39pm little Quincy was here!

the whole birthing process was much more relaxed and laid back than i ever expected. everything went perfectly and she came out flawless! we are so thankful for a happy healthy baby. we couldnt ask for more.
