My "November" baby arrived

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My little girl, Ivy, arrived at 11:40am on 12/5, after a 3.5 hour labor. I was induced with pitocin, as I had reached 42 weeks. Having been scared of having pitocin again (a very hard induction at 39 weeks with my son) this was a breeze - labor was short, intense and I pushed her out over 4 contractions. I credit my RRL tea drinking for some of the brevity.

She is just beautiful, nursing her has been a breeze, and we are home settling into life as a family of four.

DUH - I'm editing to add she was 9lbs even, and 21 inches long - a good sized babe, which we expected, as she'd been cookin' so long!

I'm so glad to hear your induction went so well.
Good job with your quick labor and with your new little girl!!!
