She came at 4:56 pm on June 20 after 15 hours of labor. Water broke at 1:30a. WOW! What an experience that was.
At 1:30p I was told to push. After 3.5 hours of pushing (egads) she was finally crowning.
She is tiny for full term, but completely healthy ... and beautiful. 5 lbs 7.5 ozs; 17" long.
I am faring OK. I tried natural for about 6 hours and needed relief. Soooo much happier. But after 3.5 hours of pushing, when she finally crowned and emerged, I got a 4th degree (?) tear through the perineum. Extended use of stool softeners and peri bottles for me!
My husband took all the pictures. I'll post one when I get a chance.
