Topic: She is here!!!
Had baby girl (no name yet) at 1:17am. 7.5lbs & 17 inches long. Riley was 22.5 inches & 7.3 at 10 days late so I'm surprised she is bigger. She looks just like him! Had an OB appt yesterday. Cervix was more favorable so tried the induction again. From 10:30am ish - 4:45pm was pretty slow. Piticon up up 4 (which is low) brought on pretty regular contractions. Painless though. Dr broke my water at 4:45pm. Around 7-8pm I suddenly started getting more painful & quick contractions. Got my epidural a bit later & when the Dr checked me I was ready to go. Overall pain was okay but it did take a bit for the epidural to fully work plus several boosts but even then it was managable. No pain at all when I had her & was pushing. Overall it went VERY smooth!! I'm SO excited since I only tore a little vs a huge zig zag with Riley. Healing sucked with him!!! Feeling okay now. Maybe got 2 ish hours sleep & have a headache but overall am well. Boys will meet her today. I'm sure after I eat, shower & such I'll feel better. I can't believe she is here. I'll try & post a pic. It is HARD getting a good photo so she is cuter then it appears ;-) I was VERY unsure with being induced but overall it worked great and was a exteremly easy labor considering.
