She's here 3 weeks late, but worth the wait!!- Update w/ photo

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi Ladies,

Sorry to be so absent, but I have been quite busy the past few days. Lillian Helen arrive at 8:28 pm on Wednesday, July 23rd- exactly 3 weeks after she was due!

It might be a while before I write up my birth story, but here is the short- water broke at 2:30 am on Tuesday after my very first contraction- in the back. I immediately started contractions (all in the back) that were 5 mins apart, so basically I was in active labor for 40 1/2 hours before I started pushing for 3 1/2 for a total of 40 hours.

She was 9 pound 15 oz and 21 1/4 inches long- and perfect!! I will post more later, but now she needs to eat.

Best of luck to you all!!

Here is a photo of Lily laying in my Mom's lap yesterday- 4 days old:

I was wondering about you; I am so glad baby Lillian finally decided to join us on the outside! You would think going so late would let you catch a break on the length of labour, but no. Congratulations!
