finally had the baby!

  • hello all!!

    I finally had my baby girl! my due date was 9/27 and she came on 10/1. I was 1 centimeter dilated for about 3 weeks and at around 6pm on 9/30 they induced me (pitocin) I ended up having her at 3:10pm on 10/1. Vaginal delivery, I only pushed for about an hour, they did use the vacuum thing though. She was 7 lbs 11oz and 21 1/4 inches long, her name is April. She was born with high bilirubin levels so she spent about 10 hours under the lights getting phototherapy yesterday. But other wise she is a very happy, healthy baby!!

  • Congrats!  I am so glad to hear that you had your beautiful baby, and it sounds like things are going well-minus the bili lights.  I love the name that you picked out, that is perfect!  Now, make sure to get rest when she is sleeping, take deep breaths and know we are here to support you in anyway we can.

    Wonderful news,
