eden made her way out of my uterus this afternoon at 12:52 after a very intense 14 hour labor followed with 3 hours of pushing. i was exactly 39 weeks. we are totally in love, she is so beautiful and calm and i can't stop staring at her.

birth story and pics to come soon, but her stats are:

eden evelyn
born 2/23/09
12:52 p.m.
7lbs 4.4oz
21.5 inches long.

had a slow start and was whisked away to nicu for a couple of hours but she's fine and with me now. i'm recovering well, no tears even though she shot out of me with one huge push.

Oh wow, Jenny! Much congratulations! So happy for you! Wow, that's a long time pushing, lady! Go you. How is nursing going after her being in NICU after birth like that?

Great news to hear, I know you were getting very anxious. Can't wait to hear more and see pictures...

:::::::::

totally out of context, but I've been meaning to ask, what kind of glasses you are wearing in your 37 week shot on your blog? I am working on getting new ones before baby and very rarely do I see any I really like...but I love yours.

I am crashing from the April DDC but I have been checking every day to see when Eden would be born (I've been following your story). I guess the midwife stripping the membranes helped?? I can't wait to hear your birth story - I am so happy for you!!!!
