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.
