Early Delivery: He is here!

Hi All,

Sorry for the radio silence these last couple of days, but things got a bit hectic here at Effortless Style. As you all know I was wishing and praying that I would go into labor sooner than later and on 12/14/11 I got my wish.

I woke up at 7am that morning and literally heard a pop and then bam my water broke! We left for the hospital at 7: 45 am and during the short car ride I started getting contractions 3 mins apart. We arrived at the hospital at 8am and I was told I was only 2 centimeters dilated. So frustrating with all of the pain I was hoping it was a bit more. Once I got placed in the labor and delivery room the contractions were even more painful and I was able to get my epidural. The epidural made the next couple of contractions better, but I could still feel them and was doing some heavy breathing during them.  My doctor arrived at 10:30 am and heard my heavy breathing and decided to check me again. Turns out I was already 8 centimeters dilated and almost ready to go. Literally 10 mins later I was 10 centimeters and ready to push!

I was hoping I would only have to do a couple of good pushes and he would be out, but that didn’t happen. I pushed for 3 hours and finally at 1:58 pm the latest addition to Effortless Style arrived!

Without further adieu I would love to introduce you to Hudson Oliver Pavone!

{We still can’t believe he is here! I guess bribing him with Christmas gifts worked! :) }

{Hudson must not realize that Mommy is a blogger and loves to snap pictures, because he kept covering up his face.}

{Proud Daddy in his funny shirt that was picked out just for the labor.}

{After spending two nights in the hospital we were finally comfy and at home.}

{Close up of Hudson! Isn’t he cute?}

We are beyond obsessed with him. All we do is stare at him in total awe. I’ve been lucky to have Jon at home with me these last couple of days, but tomorrow it’s back to work for him so please excuse us as we try and get into a new routine. Posting will be a bit light for the rest of 2011, but don’t worry we’ll be back in full force come January.

  19. Congratulations! How wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing. At 35 weeks pregnant I am happy to hear your birth story, while it sounds challenging it seems nothing like the horrible videos they showed in birthing class. Glad you are all well and enjoying Hudson!

    Merry Christmas!

    Congratulations to you all!! What a precious baby boy! Love his name!

  23. Karrie says:

    Congratulations! The first few weeks go by in such a blur. Take a LOT of pictures! I’m almost 4 months in the motherhood journey and I look back on the pictures from the first week and I’m still in awe. I can’t believe she was so tiny and their looks change so dramatically.

    Hudson is adorable! I love his name. At first I was feeling a little jealous over your birth story–3 1/2 hour labor sounds so nice but pushing for 3 hours… Wow-wee!

    Enjoy your new role as Mommy!

  24. He is completely beautiful and I love the name Hudson! Congrats and Merry Christmas!

  25. Colleen says:
