Hannah Marie Zwygart

Hannah arrived April 25, 2010 5:44am! Weighing in at 7lbs 12 oz, 20 inches long. She is beautiful!! If you want more details about the birth scroll down pass the pictures if you just want to admire her enjoy!! (I am not biased or anything)

A four generation picture...super happy we got this one!

Just about ready to leave the hospital!
Took this one today, it shows off her little dimple!

We went to the hospital Saturday night and received my epidural at about midnight. Of course, I started feeling great...but a little too good. The epidural had a drip and rose too far up my body, my chest went numb and then my face, I asked the nurse if it was normal that I couldn't swallow. They immediatly pulled the epidural and told me I had to wait until I could feel the contractions again before they could reinsert it. Well, when we got to feeling the pain again my blood pressure was really high and the baby's heart rate was really low. I dilated too far and ended up having a natural birth. Things went well, Chad and the nurses were awesome and helped me through the breathing (we didn't take any birth classes and took the hospital tour that morning :). Unfortunatly though, the pain didn't end there, it ends up my epidural had a drip that went in the wrong area of my spine which results in brutal migraines 24/7. I thought that I could tough it out and did for five days but today I decided the pain was too much and went back to the hospital and received a spinal patch. They did another epidural but instead of inserting medicine they insert my blood to plug the hole. My headache went away and we are left with sore back. Despite all the pain though I can honestly say motherhood is worth it! Chad and I are loving parenthood and look forward to all the new things that it brings!
