We did it!

I'm really wiped out so we'll keep this short.

Natalie Grace was born at 12:41 p.m. yesterday, weighing 7 pounds 10 ounces and measuring 19 inches long. We successfully did a pitocin-induced birth with no pain medicine. It was intense and wonderful and I'm so glad we successfully experienced that and I couldn't have done it without Jay and my favorite nurse Beth. Afterwards, the placenta didn't detach and I don't know much of the details, because I had to have serious pain meds after that. I guess it was about 2 hours later that everything calmed down, they got the placenta out and uterus clamped down, and I was coherant again.

Baby Natalie is nursing like a champ and we're doing well. Recovering, really weak from the blood loss, but happy and content.

More later!

Sounds like a rollercoaster! I'm happy you are all doing well now. Congrats on your baby girl, I am sure she is beautiful!

If you're looking for something to boost your blood back up, send Jay to People's for some Chloroxygen. You mix it in water and it it tastes like grass but it is great for anemia. BTDT! Best wishes on a speedy recovery!
