Finally!!! After 42wks+1, and a short but very intense 3hr labor, my little girl, "Bella" arrived this morning, our 4th UC, at 2:00am! She is 5.5lbs 18 1/2inches long. Born posterior and into the waiting hands of her Daddy. She was definitely a bit overcooked, had some light mec staining when my waters broke during crowning, but her nose and mouth were perfectly clear, she's got super long finernails and dry, peely hands and feet. I birthed her placenta about 20mins later, and it was also very "well done" and rather fragile. I swallowed 2 small pieces to ward off any PPH, and feel fantastic: a small "skid mark "on each inner labia because her head came so fast, but no tears and no back labor like with my other 2 OP's. She had her first meal at 5mins old and is nursing great. She has beautiful red hair and denim blue eyes; an absolute dream! Pics and detailed birth story to come! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Congratulations mama! Your story made me smile, because my little 5 pound girl was also born after an intense 3 hour labor. I hope you're enjoying her as much as I'm enjoying mine!!

Yay!! I came on here specifically to check in on you! My little guy was quite a bit bigger than your DD, but I also had an intense 3 hr labor, he was OP (but I had KILLER back labor), and he has red hair and dark blue eyes!<br>
Congrats, Mama! Can't wait to "hear" the rest of the story!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">Thanks so much everyone for your love and kind words. Things are going great. I am over the moon in love with this lil girl, as are Daddy and all the siblings. There is never a moment there arent a pair of arms to hold her (which she is more than happy about). I had hoped to have a birth story and pics ready by now, but boy oh boy am I busy! My 16month old thinks he needs to nurse right along with baby sissa and dh is back to work already. Makes for hectic times, but it is all great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
