GIRL!!! I can't even put my reaction into words....the only thing I can come up with is shock and pure joy
The labor was 2 hours and 39 minutes from timeable contractions to birth. I did get to the hospital in plenty of time though and my dr. was already there for another patient so it all went well. Whew! I went in late Sunday night and had her after midnight Monday.
I could have gotten an epidural but it moved so fast that my nurse said I probably only had 10 more contractions when my dr. broke my water. I figured that wouldn't be worth the discomfort of having to sit up for it. I didn't last those 10 contractions....in 15 minutes I went from 6 to 8, and in another 15 minutes I went from 8 to 10. Dr literally ran back in to the room just in time for the pushing.
I pushed for less than 5 mins, she was out in 2 pushes.
12:39 Leah Noelle was born 8 lbs 1 oz, 20.5 inches long.
