She was born on Tuesday, May 2, at 7:13 PM. She was 7#12 oz. and 20 inches long. I had a great labor and delivery, although I did get the epidural, I still felt everything, because by the time the Dr. put it in, I was ready to push. Labor started around 12:30, and I labored at home until 4:30 or so, got to the hospital at 10 to 5, water broke at 5:15, labored in the tub for quite awhile, and she was born at 7:13. I pushed for about 6 minutes. She is beautiful, looks alot like her older sisters, but yet has a very different look all her own too. Lot's of black hair! I'll try and post some pics this weeekend. Nursing is going great, my right boob (well, nipple) is pretty sore, so we're working on that, but otherwise she's doing great!!

Oh yeah, I forgot to add, that when my water broke, there was meconium in it, but all turned out well, she did have some probs breathing for the first hour, but resolved it on her own!

Busy Mama to three beautiful girls and loving wife to my hubby
