Our Little Girl Has Arrived!

Sorry I've taken so long to post this. We've been a little busy.

Here's our story:

On Monday (08/06) we ended up going to the hospital a little before noon. It turns out that I had progressed pretty well while hanging out at home, I was already 100% effaced and 5.5-6 cm dilated! Labor and delivery was super busy that day so I got to spend the first couple of hours laboring on a gurney in pre-op, but eventually I was moved to a big, comfy labor and delivery room.

I was so terrified to get an epidural that I waited until I was 7.5 cm and in tears during each contraction. Getting the epidural was extremely painful, but well worth it. I could see on the monitor that I was having contractions and I couldn't feel a thing, so we just hung out and waited.

At around 7:30 I was fully dilated and got the go ahead to start pushing which proved to be a bit difficult as I was still numb. After two hours the nurse said that they wanted to turn down the epidural so that I could have more productive pushes. It turns out that wasn't neccessary because at that point I started vomiting so furiously that I pushed the baby down. A few more pushes later and out she came at 9:31 pm.

8 pounds 6 ounces, 20 inches long, and insanely beautiful. She is perfect and we are completely in love.

It's 10am on Monday. I started having contractions at about midnight. I think we'll go to the hospital soon.

Still Waiting- 2 days past due

As of 10:30 Wednesday morning I am not all. Not one little bit. I guess Lennon is just taking her sweet time. Maybe she's waiting for us to pick out her middle name. hmmm. The Dr. guesstimated that she is about 7.5 lbs now. She needs to either come out very soon or stop growing. ouchies.

Her new favorite hobby is stretching out as big as she can and pushing super hard with her head and every limb. A little uncomfortable for me.

I think I'm finally to the point where I'm ready to not have anyone living inside me. She has permission to come out now.
