Today at 2:02pm Carlie Marie was born. She was 6 lbs, 11 oz (exactly what DS was), 18.5 inches. She's doing great and the itching should go away soon!

It was a great birth. Some on here would probably have hated it and I ended up getting an epidural after the "cascade of interventions", but it was the right birth for me and I'm thrilled! :

Thanks for all your well wishes!

Here she is!

Congradulations!

In my opinion if your baby is here and you and her are fine then it was a perfect birth! She is beautifull. I want my baby now!

It's all about you mama...it doesn't matter what other moms would pick.

I do hope the itching goes away soon, it's my understanding it may take a day or two, but you can hit the heavy anti-itch stuff now.
