Astraia Faith is here!

At 41+1 my baby girl finally made her dramatic entrance.

An unknown infection in the fluid & placenta meant we were both pretty sick and stressed this last week.
During labor her heart rate was scarily up in the 240's! Luckily I dilated quickly and she was out in 6 pushes.

I got to hold her briefly after birth, but then she was off to the NICU. Her temps have been low and she's had rapid HR & respirations. Hoping tomorrow we'll be able to take her out of the iscolette.


Oh, and in my post-delivery stupor, I typo'ed her name... it's "Astraea"
