I wanted to let you know that Riley Nicole arrived 11/12 @ 7:03 pm weighing 9lbs. 8ozs 20" long. I was scheduled for an induction this morning b/c after my appt. last Wed I was still only 3" dilated 70% effaced. Fortunately at 4am Thursday I lost my plug and started contractions. I was GBS+ so I went to the hospital around 11:30 to start an antibiotic drip. The Dr. had to break my water around 6:00 and then my contractions got stronger. I started pushing around 6:50 but on the 3rd push her shoulder got stuck. They rushed around trying to get her out quickly and she did in 10 mins. They had to rush her to the incubator and she was gray and not crying. They stimulated her and she finally started to cry, music to my ears. She had a bruised face but most of the purple is gone already. She's so beautiful and perfect. Already sleeping in 3 hrs. intervals and nursing is getting better.
Thank you ladies. She's doing wonderful and I forgot it was your birthday Carly. Happy Birthday! The 12th was also her uncles and cousins birthday and mine was yesterday. So many of them in November! I hope all is well with the both of you. I've attached a pic of Riley at 1 week old and with her big sister. Take care!!
