The birth of Baby Girl (nickname yet to be determined!)

last night at 11:45 PM. Born Unattended (faerylady didn't make it) but assisted by PreacherMan who is the bestest husband and labor coach in the world.

7 lb 14 oz 20 inches. 13 3/4 inch head born military (ouch)

When the labor finally picked up it was 10:00 last night. Then it was fast and furious.

Full birth story will follow later.

Congratulations, Christine!

What a beautiful baby....and you look beautiful, too! Did she latch right on and nurse well?

Juliet put me on to your blog and I am so enjoying reading it.

Best wishes to you and your family at this exciting time!

Oh, she's so pretty and pink!! Love your necklace... :) And fast and furious would definitely describe a less than 2hr active phase!! You're awesome! YOU DID IT!!! We are so happy for you and hope you have a wonderful babymoon...

Waiting and waiting and waiting and suddenly, HERE! So excited for you!

Lowa said...

Wow, she is GORGEOUS! And I love your nose piercing! I would love to do that, but don't have the nose for it. I have a big bulbous Irish nose:( MY tattoos will have to suffice.

I can't wait to hear the birth story! I know you are SO GLAD it is over. I remember those days. YOu want it over so bad. I am sure you are loving having someone to nurse again, eh??

I'll be the dumb one and ask about the military description...
If it means hand by forehead... yeah, ouch is a definite OUCH! Been there, did that!
Congratulations! She is beautiful and finally here!!! YEAH!

I've been keeping up with your blog (found it through another blog's link section months ago) and am so excited to see things went well for you and your little one. You have been in my prayers. I can't wait to read her birth story.

"military" means her head was not flexed with chin to chest, but held high, like a soldier. It means that the second largest diameter possible came out instead of the smallest!

Dollymama said...

Aw! Yay! Congratulations! Wonderful.

mm said...

Ouch doesn't even cover the issue then... military=ouch.
Yup, got it!
