At 11 am, I was at a 6 and I let them break my water. Finally around 3 pm I went for an epidural (my first). I hate needles with a passion but I was literally crying at the pain. I had 3 easy labor and deliveries before so this was new to me. I was able to sleep for a half hour or so, then pushed her out in less than 5 minutes. She's preterm so she's being observed in the NICU, but so far she seems very healthy. 6lbs, 12 oz. 20 inches. Olivia Marie. And she is so precious!
Congratulations on your new baby girl!
I'm sorry the birth threw you for a loop -- I think I recall you saying in a chat thread recently that you thought you'd have a longer labor this time around. Sounds to me like you did great despite the more challenging labor!

Congratulations, and welcome Olivia!!! I hope she is out of NICU soon!
