Our beautiful daughter "a" arrived yesterday afternoon.  9lbs 3.3oz, 22" long, 14.25" head circumference.  dp started having ctx at 430am and we were in the hospital at 840am.  first check at 955am showed 6.5-7cm dilated.  at 1055am dp got the epidural.  her water broke at 1234pm, fully dilated and ready to push at 108pm.  dd was born at 133pm.  another back birth - all three have been back births, born on a sunday - also like her brothers and we even had the same l&d nurse as we'd had with the boys.  what are the odds ladies??

 

dp had a second degree tear but is doing really well.  dd latched on right away and is nursing well and frequently.  hopefully dp's milk will come in soon because she is already cluster feeding at just 1 day old (!!).

 

the boys came to visit yesterday evening and love her to pieces.  ds1 wanted to know when she was coming home and ds2 held her in his lap (with my help) and said she was "my baby".

 

mommy and baby will be getting home tomorrow, yay!!  :)

Congratulations, I was waiting to see if the contractions led to anything!  Hope your family is doing well :o)
