So the Hulk was scheduled for an induction at his 38 week mark. I took a shower, put on makeup and curled my hair. Captain America and I drove to the hospital, and checked in at 6 am. I recieved an epidural, and then the IV that started my pitocin. After about 3 hours, they broke my water. The entire time, I felt absolutely nothing. By about 3 in the afternoon, the Hulks heart rate was dropping. The staff was talking about preping me for a c-section. At the point that I was almost ready to go to surgery, the doctor asked me if he could bring a medical student in, to witness it. I said sure.
The med student started asking me questions, and he just happened to ask the right question. "Are you feeling any pressure?" Why yes, yes I was. Well all of a sudden, they start checking, and Hulk is on his way out.
Thank goodness for that question! It saved me from surgery.
He was a cute little squishy hairy baby with a squished over nose. Al & Scary said he looked like a monkey. Everything straightened out in the end, and he really is quite handsome now.
And, that my friends, is the story of the Hulks arrival to earth :)
