So, making sure that AJ knows the full details like who won the prize- here the update now that we’re home.
She was born at 7:32 PM making my Aunt Sue winner of an Arbonne Awaken Sea Salt Scrub with a guess of 7:00 PM. Word has it that she used her own experience to guess, good job Aunt Sue.
She weighed 6 pounds, 14 oz and is 20 inches long/tall.
Nothing much happened until I got my epidural at 2:00 pm. I then started having low blood pressure which was messing with her heart rate (it keep dropping funny). I also stopped progressing and she wasn’t really descending which made them wonder if she wasn’t positioned right.
At 5:00 they started talking about doing a c-section by 7:00 PM if nothing happened. At 6:15 still nothing was happening and it was pretty much guaranteed that I’d be in surgery. 20 minutes later I was at 8 centimeters and around 7:00 I was ready to go. Had to wait for the doctor to finish delivering a different baby and then it only took 12 minutes of pushing to deliver her! She ended up having the cord around her neck- so I’m glad that she was born Friday (we didn’t see anything in the ultrasound last week).
So she’s here and it’s a little weird that she is. 2 whole pregnancies is a long time to wait for a baby. She had a heart murmur that was different enough to run tests and we thought she was going to have more this morning, but thankfully it was gone this morning.
That’s all I think for now. My family is coming in town this week so hopefully I’ll have time to add some updates.
Thanks everyone for praying and checking in on us! It was very appreciated.
