The pregnancy is finally over! YAY! I'm so happy and I'm not nauseous anymore. I finally have my appetite back and have been scarfing down meal after meal, with no worries about it making a comeback-if you know what I mean :)
So Monday was quite the day! I had my final Dr appointment at 1pm, then we would head to the hospital to be induced at 4pm. We got there around 3:45 and they started induction around 4:45 and 6 short hours later we had a baby, Megan Ann. No one thought it would go that fast. My doctor told me to pack things to do, DVD players, magazines, etc. So there I was with a bag full of activities and in full blown labor by about 7pm. Thank goodness for our doula too, she made everything go so smoothly and kept Dan calm, cool and collected-or as much as he could be. So Megan was ready to come and once she decided to come, she was packed up and moving out as fast as she could. I was checked around 10:15 and was told I was 6cm so we decided to move to the tub (worked wonders with Logan). After 3 contractions in the tub I was convinced it wasn't going to work and I wanted IV drugs so we got out she checked me again and I was 10 cm and ready to push, no time for drugs now! With only about 6 minutes of pushing she was out. She literally came out so fast that her head is so perfectly round. She looks like a c-section baby. All the doctors and nurses were even commenting on it. But anyway she's here and we're both doing well. She has a little jaundice, nothing too serious (we hope) so we've been spending lots of time sunbathing by the windows and lots and lots and lots of time nursing to try to avoid a hospital stay under the blue billi lights like Logan. As for me I'm resting when I can. I am very tired, but who isn't with a new born in the house? Sleep will come back. I'm getting in a few short naps during the day and at night. Dan has been super helpful, and even Logan has helped out--a little. :)
I have 3 or 4 projects to show you but I think it will be a few more days until I can get them up. So bear with me, the next few weeks will be on and off but soon we'll be in a routine and I'll be able to post more regularly. Here's a few more pictures from Monday night's action.
Dan holding her for the first time. He was so great in the delivery room. Even when things were moving so fast he kept his cool. He kept saying for HOURS after "I can't believe you did that without any drugs"
