Milana has joined our family!

I accidently posted this on the general board, instead of here, so it's a little late!
Just wanted to let everyone know that our beautiful baby girl, Milana (pronounced Mee-lah-nah) has joined our family as of last Saturday (Nov 6) at 11:57 p.m. Three more minutes and she would have been born right on her due date! I guess she had other ideas.

For all my worries about this second labor and delivery, things went really, really quickly. Got to the hospital with cxt 3 min apart and was 5 cm dialated already. Pushed a total of 10 min, through 4 ctx, and she came out! It happened so fast that it was surreal. My doc was on call that night and she was totally awesome. We were in a great birthing suite with just my dh, doc, nurse and me (and baby!) In total, it took less than 3 hours and my doc let us check out of the hospital after only 18 hours!! I couldn't wait to get home to my other dd and my family.

Milana was 8 lbs 10 oz. Bigger than my first. My doctor had me feel her head as she was coming out and then she reminded me to open my eyes as she compeletely pulled her out and put her on my chest. I missed all of this with my first because I was so focused on pushing. This time, I felt like I was watching "A baby's story" from the inside out!! It was totally awesome. Later, as baby was getting cleaned up, she showed me the placenta and we had a little "Discovery" moment as she explained what each part did, etc. All in all, it was all good.......

Good luck to all of you mama's whose little blessings are on their way!!!!
