Came on last night and wrote a fairly complete birthstory and was horrified to lose it before it posted properly...arrgghhh! So now here is the super abbreviated version:

Izabella Rose is here!
Born at 3:14pm on Wednesday, October 13th.
She was born at 36 weeks, 5 days.
She weighed 7 pounds even and is 20 inches long!
The second induction "took" and we were able to still birth with our regular midwife consulting with a maternal fetal specialist re: my BP, although it was a completely different experience [from my previous births] with having to keep my head level with my body and no moving around, standing, shower or tub to help with relaxing, etc. That part was excruciating.

She is here and we are both safe and so very grateful for the ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC care we received during this experience.

All the women here in our due date club were so supportive also!
Keep those babies coming!!! Women ROCK!


In Joy,
Lisa and Family

Lisa, momma to DD '10 , DD '07, DS '82 and partner to DH
