Lillyanne Isabella was born Wednesday night, December 3, at 8:08 pm. She weighed in at 7 pounds 3 ounces and was 21 inches long. The birth went as well as possible, but was far from what I had planned or wanted. I went in for labwork for blood pressure on Wednesday morning. My blood pressure was high, along with a few other things. The doctor came and looked at me and did some Iridology and something with my tongue, checked my reflexes, swelling, etc and said I needed to be delivered. So they sent me straight to the hospital to be induced. My labor was very quick. I had pitocin and was magnesium sulfate. Lilly was born vaginally with no epidural or pain meds. They took me off the magnesium late last night. My bp is still a little bit of trouble, but is okay. I'll update with pics and more next week.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.

I'm sorry that your birth didn't go the way you wanted it, but glad your baby girl got here safely and you are both doing well now!

Congratulations! And I have to say, I'm impressed that you went without pain meds while having pit - that can't be easy.
Welcome to the world Lillyanne! Beautiful name!

Congratulations!

I blinked hard when I saw my daughter's name there--not a lot of people spell it with the double L, then I opened and you used the double N too, but yours is a Lilly-anne? Or does the e make the 'ə' sound, so it's like my Lillyanna? (then is the a in -anne like a in apple or a in father?)

Congratulations! Sorry it didn't go as planned but the most important thing is you've got your healthy and beautiful little Lilly to hold and love. And, as the pp said, I'm impressed - no pain meds with Pit can't be easy.
