Hi all, hope it's ok to post this here.

Zoe Anna S. was born yesterday at 3:57 PM via c-section...it was easy and perfect and so is she. She gets the distinction of being our smallest baby at 7 lbs. 12 ounces and 20 inches. Surgery was 23 minutes from start to finish and was smooth and complication free. I went home a little bit ago. She looks just like Avery and is pretty laid back. We did have a harrowing night of gas bubbles but if that's as bad as it gets I'll take it!

More details to come...settling in...

Thanks all for the well wishes and support.

XOXO

~Marie : Mom to DS(11), DS(10), DD(8), DD(4), DD(2), & Happily Married to DH 12 yrs.!

I totally agree, it wasn't time yet, when they were all getting after you. You got through it, and you knew when it was time. Celebrating with you.

Congratulations! I am so glad for you! I am sorry you didn't get your UC, but I am glad you had a safe, easy birth and a perfect little baby girl! You know, with her only being 7lbs, I think you definitely did right trusting your instincts in waiting until now to have the C-section. I can't wait to see pictures, and I hope you were treated well at the hospital! Wishing you a fast recovery!
