I don't think she would be smiling
if she knew what she was headed home to...
So it finally happened. Saturday I went in at about 4:15, and I wasn't in labor, but my doctor told me to go anyways. It was a panicky situation, but they didn't send me home. We were up in a room by 7:45 that night. They gelled me twice, it kicked me into labor. By 1:30 I was needing drugs. I got the epidural, things slowed down. At about 4 they started potocin, they woke me up at 6:30 and it was time. I was done by about 7:15 Sunday morning.
She is such a good baby. We had to stay int he hospital because she had jaundice. Yesterday was a very hard day for me, she had to sit in that little tanning bed, with her eyes covered for 24 hours. I could only pull her out for 15 - 20 minutes every 3 - 4 hours. I am so glad that is over!
We got home tonite around 6:30 or so. The kids were giddy with excitement. I am pooped, and I am hurting more than I should be. So here's to hoping for a speedier recovery.
I should get back into the groove of things soon, but I just had to update everyone. Sorry it took so long!
P.S. 9 pounds 6.3 ounces, 20 1/2 inches Quite the girl...
And she looks exactly like Cooper did, exactly!!!
