I HAD MY BABY!!!!

I went to my midwife appointment and luckily she checked me. I was 5cm dilated and about 80% effaced...It was snowing and like a blizzard out side. We were 45 minutes from home so my midwife asked me to stay out where she was, walk around, go to a store or something and then go to the hospital for observation. So...I did and guess what I was in labor! Everything happened all on it's own didn't need any drugs to help it along. I got to the hospital at around 5pm and had her at 11:43 on February 10th!Her name is Elinor Michelle. She weighed 6pnds and half an ounce. She was 20in long. Labor went extremely well, just like my son's birth. I am lucky and very blessed. I only had 3 pains that got a bit intense each one building til that 3rd one and with that...I was ready to push.Before that point, labor was pretty much a breeze. Nothing too intense and I was relaxed and happy. I got up into the bed and with the help of my mom and my sister holding my legs, it took 4 pushes an she was out. 13 minutes of pushing. I did end up having to have my water broke and I did get a shot of nubain after that b/c I thought the labor would get too intense to handle. I am happy I did b/c those last 3 pains and pushing her out were very intense and painful. I can only hope and pray that each of you have this kind of labor and delivery! I just got home about an hour ago but, I wanted to tell you guys all about everything that happened! When I get a few extra minutes tomorrow I will post some pictures for you all to see. I am sorry I can do it right now b/c I am anxious to share but I haven't even downloaded pics to my computer yet.

Thank you all for all the congrats and well wishes and Monika thank you so so much for updating everyone. I love you ore than you know.

Michelle and Bill w/: Newton,our yorkie + 11yo DS, Mark, and on 2/10/10 ...Elinor!

Thanks for asking PotreroHill! I am doing pretty well. I am just achy now from all the hard work of pushing her out. My tail bone is a little sore too. Another thing is...when I have to pee, I have to go RIGHT NOW or I will pee my pants...lol! Other than that...things are going good. It feels a little weird not to be pregnant anymore...I kind of feel like my tummy is just hanging but, it is nice to be able to actually put on a pair of socks without a struggle. Plus that, my heartburn is gone!! That is a great thing b/c there is so much food I missed b/c of that!! That heartburn was so bad that during labor, I was breathing through it instead of the contractions...lol!

I can't wait for some of the rest you to start joining me!
