Ayla Marie has arrived!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My sweet, impatient little girl was born Saturday morning at 6:46am. She was 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 20 in. long. I was scheduled for an induction on the 19th but evidently that day didn't work for her. I went to bed that night with a dull low back ache which I chalked up to doing too much housework and I woke up a bit later to a really strong contraction. They kept coming, getting closer and more painful so I woke my partner and off we went to the hospital. We arrived at 3am and Ayla was born less than 4 hours later. She is a great sleeper and nursing is going smoothly.

Yay! My hairdresser is named Ayla. She says she has purposefully never read the books.

DH and I LOVE the name Ayla (we loved the books too!) and plan to name our little one this as well if baby turns out to be a girl!

It seems so weird that she might not have been born until today if we'd made it to the scheduled induction. The last 6 days have been the most wonderful days of my entire life.

Oh and I bet you were hoping to find pics.
