Thank goodness they gave us reading material in every class. In the last night of childbirth class we learned about the different options as far as pain management for delivery, and the guys learned how to massage our backs during labor to help with each contraction.

Kendall Diana Cannady was born at 3:05 a.m. at 9lbs 7oz and 21 and half inches long! Whew!! Was I exhausted and I know she was too!

I was so anxious to see her, but since I had a fever I had to wait just a little bit longer so they could be sure she was fine.
