Hooray Serafina!!! What a beautiful baby and look at that hair! Did she show any signs of post-dates (no vernix, wrinkly, etc) or was she just coming on her own perfect time?
Congrats on the speedy and succinct labor! Fingers crossed, I get the same thing (was 3cm, 70% effaced and 0 station at midwife's yesterday, so closer than I thought!)...
Thats how I was except 100% effaced, an hour before she was born, so things could be very quick for you! Fingers VERY much crossed!!!
serafina, congratulations! I'm curious as to how your baby's weight was estimated, I've only ever heard that those guesses can be wildly off but yours was pretty darn close! Since our babies were similar in size I'm trying to think back to our belly pics just for comparison's sake. I think you have a much longer torso than I do, I'll have to go look. Congrats again, enjoy your little one!
They really can be wildly off. They told me I'd have a 5 pound baby with my first and he came out a couple days after the ultrasound which put him at that tiny size and he was 7 pounds.
The dr. measured her 24 hours before she was born via ultrasound and estimated extremely close, 130 grams off, to be precise. I'm 5'7" and longish legs (so my a bit avg height doesn't come from my torso) and was a slim size 4, maybe 125-130 pounds when I got pregnant, but gained 50 pounds so all my belly pics makes me look like I've never been slim! Anyway, the dr. saw me and guessed by looking that she would be average in size, specifically said he did not think she would be huge like my previous 9lb 4oz baby, even after palpitating my belly. Turns out she was my biggest yet, which the ultrasound pretty much indicated but he didn't guess by looking at me or feeling me.
