Just a little update with a link to some pictures
. A bunch of the pics we took didn't turn out at all
So this is all we have for now. This is the second time I've had my arms free since Sunday morning. Annalise is of course constantly on the breast trying to get the milk to come in so I haven't even taken any other pics of her and I don't have any time to post but I have checked in to read. I'll get some better pictures of her soon when she is okay with it.

The name is gorgeous!
ps- I know you went from 2cm to delivery in one hour but am curious, how long did it take you to get to 2 cm?
You know, I really don't even know that I was 2 cm when my water broke....I never had any internals until 3cm. I could have never dilated until my water broke. Basically my ctx were 3-5 min. apart then sometimes they were 10 min. apart....this went on for about 3.5 hours. I could still walk and talk through them. Then when my water broke at 12:30 they got super intense right away. The midwife checked me at 1:00 a.m. and that was my first internal at 3 cm. She checked me when I had a small urge to push and I was 8 cm. Two more ctx and I pushed the her out with 2 pushes.
It sounds easy but it was super tough...I'm so glad she came out fast though...there's nothing like 2 pushes to get a baby out.
