Henry Earl arrived 6:54 a.m. 12/9, at exactly 42 weeks. He and I are both healthy and happy!
I was scheduled for an induction overnight 12/8, but my water broke first at 3am that morning. L & D had me come in to start the induction right away instead of waiting to see if labor would start on its own before my scheduled time. I labored well for about 12 hours but then labor stalled at 5cm; on the advice of my midwife I got an epidural to see if that would help me progress but alas, I stayed at 5cm despite maxing out the amount of pit they would give me. Hank was born via c-section without any complications. He is just a tiny bean at 8lbs 4oz considering I come from a family of big babies and he was 2 weeks overdue!
Pics forthcoming! Thanks for all of your support for us throughout this journey.
