Jocelyn Grace was born January 29th - four days past her "due date"! She weighed 7 lbs 8 oz and was 21 inches long, and is absolutely gorgeous of course!
Started labor around 8p on the 28th, nothing painful really, then had to get out of bed to breathe through contractions around 1a. We left for the hospital at around 4, got there at 6 and she arrived at 11a. No drugs, no episiotomy (had to fight for that one!), no tearing, nothing! It was absolutely amazing, I can't thank the Lord enough for the way things went.
We're breastfeeding - using a nipple shield - and things seem to be working out fine in that department (apparently she likes plastic!).
Congrats to everyone, enjoy your babies!
