The Birth of Sadie Ann Jensen

On July 22, 2008 we were blessed to welcome our little Sadie Ann into the world. She was born at 3:22pm weighing 8lbs. 4oz and 21 inches long. I was scheduled to be induced on the 22nd which was a few days after my "due" date but I actually went into labor the night before and came into the hospital at around 4am. Sadie is my only child that I have gone into labor on my own with. I was induced with all of my boys. It still took several hours (14) to get her here. Everything went fairly well except I did get a spinal headache from my epidural which caused me to puke with every contraction. Needless to say I was exhausted by the time she finally came. Dr. Austin and my OB nurses were fabulous and minus the headache it was the best delivery I've had. The important thing was that Sadie was perfectly healthy and we headed home after just one night at the hospital. I ended up going back to the hospital for a blood patch to get rid of the headache. It was a quick procedure that led to instant relief. Grandma Erin came out to help us with the boys so that Travis could be with me and Sadie in the hospital. It was so nice not to have to worry about the boys knowing they were in good loving hands. Not to mention my house a lot cleaner when I came home than when I left. It was great to have her here with us for the week. Here are some pics of our new addition to the family. We love you Sadie!
