We just arrived home from the West Houston Medical Center with our darling daughter, Milena Anjali Williams. After developing toxemia very late in my pregnancy, we abandoned plans for a home birth and admitted to the hospital for an induction at 40 weeks 6 days gestation.
Milena arrived at 2:11am. She weighs 8 lbs. 1 oz. and is 20 3/4 inches long.
She is doing very well and nursing vigorously.
We are completely and totally in love with her.
My health is on the mend, and I will be resting up to increase my depleted iron and such.
I am so thankful we were able to have a vaginal birth (even though I had a closed hard cervix and looked "un-induceable"). It was a long hard road of pitocin and being strapped to a bed, etc. with IVs and such but my entire experience at this hospital was extremely positive. I absolutely loved EVERY single staff member I met. We feel so lucky.
Thanks for all your wishes and love! I will post her birth story soon.
