UPDATE!

Our beautiful baby girl, Elisabeth Josephine, was born this morning at 1:30 am. She's 6 lbs and 7 oz, a little peanut.

Active labor was longer with her than my son, and it took me 8 hours to get from 1-2 cm! After that though, I progressed from 2 to complete in 3 hours!! She was born in 2 pushes, one for the head and one for the body.

She's just gorgeous, and nursing like a champ. I'm so in love, and very excited for her to meet her big brother.

So this morning I woke up to a little dampness, and was suspicious.

Then I had a few gushes and it was confirmed! I'm so excited...it looks like we will be meeting this baby soon!

Obviously no huge rush, as I'm not contracting regularly, but we're sending my DS to preschool and then to my parents house.

I also ordered some XS Thirsties Covers bc Jillian's Drawers had sent me an email about a Buy 2 Get 1 Free on gently used. It was the last thing I wanted to get before this babe arrived

Mommy to two super cute kids.
