You asked for it and here it is. The Birth Tape

Hope you enjoy, I kept it nongrafic so don't worry.
Here's the picture. Kristy, me, her Mom, Dad, Sister and my mom are all sitting around talking joking and grading papers. She had been checked 3 times in the last 4 hours and gone from 2 centimeters to 4 and we kept telling the nurse "once she hits 5 centimeters she will go quick." So she came in and told Kristy once she has a contraction with pressure to let her know. Well about 5 minutes after the 4 centimeter check the nurse reached in and felt the head right there. RIGHT THERE. I stood up and walked to get the camera ready as the nurse ran out and came back in with about 5 nurses and some guy we assume was a doctor but for all we knew he was just some dude walkin by with a name tag for the hospital who may have been delivering food or emptying trash cans. At that point I started filming and the following 2 minutes and 17 seconds ensued. No foot holders no push, push, push, not even a drop in the end of the bed. He just slid a towel under her and caught a baby (and will probably charge us $2,400 dollars for his 3 minutes of work.) I really like the part where the doc is fumbling with all the tools and umbilical cord then drops the scissors on my freakin kid.
