A GIRL It's funny because I admitted to myself in secret that I wanted a girl a few days ago:P
I have no idea what time she was born In my defense we labored for well over 12 hours. I'll have the story up later when I'm a bit more with and these icky awful afterpains aren't rocking my body.

She 8lbs.9ozs and 19.5 inches long. Holy #$% it was interesting pushing out such a big baby. Once I got her head out, it KEPT hurting and the midwife was like "Umm...we got shoulders next." Wowsers! But I did without any tears!

The birth center was LOVELY. My ideal birth in so many ways.

She's nursing great!

Mama to Umberto 12, Camille, 9, Piper 7, Rowena 2, and Jude Therese Prenatal DS diagnosis due December 23.

Yay! Congrats on the new little girl! I'm so excited for you, I know you'd been working on this labor for a loooong while!

(out of curiosity, GTG, what did everyone predict you were carrying from your belly shape?)

Momma to born April 18, 2010!

I've waited long enough.

Blueberries!

And since you said the blueberry was a big blueberry


Can you feel the look I'm giving you for thinking that 8 lbs 6 oz is "big"?

And if you don't post pictures soon, here is a Girl Blueberry and I will start thinking of Rowena like this.
