She's Out

Well the unknown baby is a Girl!

I totally guessed wrong.

She came in at a whopping 8 lbs and 14 ounces. I might post some of the labor stuff over here later but miraculously I have forgotten the bad stuff!

If you count the start of labor from the water breaking, then I was in labor for 31 hours. I went the "natural route" until a 12:30am epidural at 7-8cm. I would like to say that I would have continued natural if I wasn't so tired, but it HURT! And I was not happy that I was becoming impolite. With the third change of nursing staff, I was getting upset that a whole shift would see me being mean and surly. Now, I know that it isn't THAT big a deal and I "shouldn't" care...but I do. And I felt better being able to say "thank you" for checking my stats, "no thank you" for do you need anythings, and generally feel like a person. Cause right before the epidural I could barely get a grown out as a yes or no.

Kdubs is doing fine...Very tired. Even though, he knows he has gotten more sleep than me.

Congratulations! She's beautiful! And, what a big girl:)

Hope you are loving every minute!

And, I wanted to do the no epidural route, too, and when I did, I wasn't sure why I didn't want it!

Yea!!!! She's here!!! Way to go, TRS! You had a baby. Woo hoo!

She is gorgeous, and I am thrilled to know that God is still populating the world with women (just not through me; Brent and I only make boys, apparently). Do you guys have a name picked out yet?

She's beautiful. I'm so happy for you. And no excuses needed for taking an epidural, you do whatever you need to do, that's it. I'm glad you were able to feel like a person, too!

In any case, your baby girl looks absolutely beautiful, I'm so happy for you and KW! Love the picture of him holding his new baby girl.

Gorgeous baby!!! You are such a stud to go for so long with no epidural. That was a wise decision to get one so that you would be more like yourself when sweet girl was born. I love, love, love her name. Both names - the real one and the nickname. We had BOTH of those names on our list. Take care of yourself and enjoy how little and sweet she is. I'm so proud of you!
