Our baby girl arrived . . . as a surprise UC!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

I can't believe I am writing this.  In my heart of hearts, I hoped things might go quickly and even the midwife not make it, but I never imagined it would happen, especially after such a long, slow early labor.  But friends and family can't believe it even more, and I'm afraid we are going to be the talk of the town--not all of it good, probably. lol.gif 

 

Our sweet baby girl, Lydia Grace, arrived safely into her daddy's hands, after 16 hours of prodromal labor and 1 hour of precipitous labor.  We are all doing well.  She is 9lb, 12 oz, 21 inches long, and with a 14.5 inch head (I only needed two stitches.  DH did a good job!).  She is such a sweetie, and I love being her mama!

Ohhhhhh... she is just so sweet and chunky! I love her little chubby arms! If I didn't have my own newborn I think I would have spontaneously ovulated looking at her. :)   I'm thrilled that your birth this time around was so much shorter than your last one! An hour of labor! Wow! You are a rock star! Enjoy your sweet girl and your babymoon!
