Our newest little addition was born on May 10th! I had her all natural - no epidural, no pitocin, no anything! By the time I got to the hospital I was 8 cm dilated. We got to the hospital at 3 am , I was 10 cm by 4, and I had her at 5:40. Overall, it was a pretty amazing experience - one I would definitely choose again given the opportunity. In the end, after the contractions and the excruciating pain of the actual birth, the prize is totally worth it.
Welcome to our crazy little family Miss EM! We love you!!
Miss EM made her debut at 5:40 am on May 10, 2011, weighing in at 7 lbs, 14 oz (over a pound larger than V) and 20 3/4 inches in length (an inch longer than V). Both were born at the exact same day in the gestation period - 39 weeks and 4 days!
On our way to the hospital - 2:30 am.
Happy Birthday - minutes after birth
Leaving the hospital.
My sweet girls.
