She was 8cm an hour ago and I haven't gotten any responses from her since then, so here's hoping that baby girl is on her way!!!

I just got back from taking my little girl to the ER over there (she's ok she has strep, thanks to mommy passing it to her, but had a horrible tummy ache so I thought she had appendicitis!) I was almost tempted to pop up to the L&D to see if Amanda had her baby! How bad is that?

Katherine was born at 11:30 last night, 6lbs 6oz and 18 1/2 inches. She said they should get to go home tonight or early tomorrow since she was born so late at night. She went right to the breast and nursed for 20 minutes, and she's gorgeous.

quick update, will write out birth story and post pics later.

my baby girl is here! katherine (middle name to be decided upon later) was born at 1123pm last night (still march 26th by a half hour!) weighing 6lbs 6oz and 18.5 inches long.

she is doing absolutely amazing, no problems whatsoever, and she is completely perfect and we get to come home tonight most likely if the pediatrician is okay with us coming home before 24hrs, since she was born so late, we might stay till tomorrow morning if we can't discharge till midnight

she nursed like a pro right away, we've already done THREE 20 minute feedings and she is only 9 hours old.

she is rooming in with me and she is such a good baby. she isn't very fussy and is just content with exploring her surroundings. even her cry is just the sweetest sound.

she has brown curly hair that is so thick! all the nurses were amazed at how curly her hair is! they say they have never seen such thick curly hair on a white baby! her eyes are a hazelish with some dark blue, and she's got blonde eyebrows and lashes, so it will be interesting to see what color her hair ends up permanently.

some quick birth info, i had a 15 hour labor with the pitocin and did it what i would consider 99% drug free. i ended up needing them to inject me with some numbing stuff in my perenium while pushing because i was so tired and just couldn't do it and i had been pushing for a half hour with no progress, so once that kicked in i felt so much better.. i also used oxygen while pushing and NO TEARS. it is a miracle. i had a "minor cut" or something, but required no stitches, and I'm just a little swollen today.

anyway i should sleep while the baby sleeps, she is rooming in with me, and i sent DH home to get some real sleep so he can come back and take care of her while i try to get more..

thanks for all the well wishes guys!

Congratulations! Love the name (I'm a Catherine, but my DH doesn't want to name the baby after any immediate family). So glad labor and delivery went well and that you're able to keep the baby in with you!
