Addison Deanna Holloway

On Wednesday April 10, 2013, Addison Deanna Holloway was born. We are so excited have her in our family and just love watching her. Her birth was a wonderful experience and completely different than Ethan's birth. My water broke around 2 am early wednesday morning and our neighbor Camie came over to stay with Ethan until my dad could arrive. Unfortunately the weather that morning was a little messy with snow, but he made it eventually. I had a c-section with Ethan, but wanted to attempt a vbac with this birth and was so happy to be able to. I was put on low-dose pitocin mid-morning and began experience more intense and regular contractions. I requested an epidural and progressed rather quickly from about 3 cm to 9 cm in about 1.5 hours. After I reach 10 cm, we waited until baby dropped a little lower in the birth canal and I felt constant pressure and an urge to push. I pushed for over an hour, but once she was crowning it was maybe 2 or 3 pushes later and she was out. It such a memorable experience and one I certainly will never forget. Anthony was there and supported me the entire time. We also had two amazing nurses and a doctor who were so supportive the entire time.
