yay, I made it through the night and my contractions are still going strong!! They are 7-10 minutes apart still, but I can feel the babe pushing down into my cervix with each contraction. I have tons of pressure on my cervix and rectum. I feel like I can't stop pooping. And gobs of bloody show each time I wipe! I'll keep you all posted as time goes on.

Thanks Ladies!!

So here's a quick low down...

Kylie Drew was born at 9:50pm last night.
She is one HUGE baby! A hair under 11 pounds and 23 1/2 inches long!!! They measured her three times because they couldn't believe she was actually that long!
I'll get my birth story together in the next few days, meanwhile here are some pics:
