Good morning ladies. Our little princess has arrived. Brynn was born 11/13 at 0527. Dh and i tried to induce labor friday but only got false labkr contractions started. Went to work Saturday and Sunday. Just when i got home on Sunday night my waters broke and i really thought i had peed my pants possibly. Slowly continued to leak. After a coupke hours called md office and the NP wanted us to get to the hospital. By 1 am we checked in, 2am rn checked me said i was 2 cm and very high (thought they were going to discharge me) and the ph strip was negative for amnoitic fluid. Md didnt believe the strip after hearing my account of the evening, so she ordered the swab. By 3 am that came back positive that my amniotic fluids had popped and md checked and felt i was 3 cm. Bp was also elevated so they popped my bag even more. They started the drip and off we went. Miss Brynn arrived 2.5hrs later.. labor went so fast that the pain was unreal. I got an epidural after they checked me and said 9cm.. the anesthesia md stated that i was already at 10 cm and ready to push but since i progressed so fast it was understandable that i wanted the epidural. Slightly disappointed that i broke and got it but i needed it because i was out of my head.

I had my section today Came in at 07.30 and she wasn't born until 17.47!! Very long day, especially since I was nil by mouth since yesterday eve... There were several emergencies that had to be seen before us.

We haven't decided on a name yet though.

Congratulations everyone! I love hearing our updates
Otis and I are HOME! Yay!! And together!!! It is just the best feeling being allowed to pick him up and everything. I am just so happy. I am enjoying the newborn stage sooo much more this time around too.

It was so scary having him in NICU. I'm so glad that it's just a memory now.

Here is my chubby cheeked little guy!

Littlelala, glad to hear baby Otis is home, he is gorgeous! Enjoy him to the max!

Heychrissie, hope all went well, can’t wait to hear from you!

Futurebabyg, congratulations on he arrival of your baby girl! I wanted to go without being induced and certainly without an epidural but things happen so quickly and in the end, all that matters is that precious baby being placed in your arms!

Serenyx, congratulations!!! I can’t believe we have our babies already!!

Ladies, I’ve kinda been MIA. Just exhausted as I’m sure you all can relate .

Anyway, I wanted to share a personal detail that happened during my labor as it is an incredible one. My baby is very lucky to be alive and well as things could’ve definitely been very bleak. My baby had a “true knot” on her umbilical cord that was never known up until she was delivered. Had they seen it before hand, I would’ve had a c-section no doubt about it. Had my baby pulled on her cord, her oxygen and nutrients would’ve been cut off and we all know what could happen if that was the case. Labor could’ve caused the knot to pull tighter causing the same issue and same prognosis. I am so lucky and I thank God for being with my baby every step of the way as I continuously prayed for Him to be there for her. Call it Mother’s intuition, but I had the urgency to pray for her towards the end of my pregnancy! I leave a picture below of her umbilical cord. Sorry if TMI!
