    Hi ladies!

    So as you know I had my baby girl! Marlow Rose born at 33.3 weeks after my water broke the DAY of my baby shower (right after going home!...I was throwing up, I felt a big gush and thought/hoped it was pee...but the swab for leaks showed it wasn't)..she weighed 5.6lbs and is 46cm long. I ended up having my stitch removed the night my water broke, and then my OB thought it best to induce me because of the risk of infection and because I was already laboring and 3cm dilated when the stitch was removed (which they had to knock me out for...boo).

    I was induced the next day, it sucked. I went to 6cm without any pain meds (this was with induction)...then after only 5 hours of sleep in 4 nights...I had enough, it hurt. I knew I needed an epidural because they kept upping my oxytocin every 30 mins. It was great, but slowed every thing down of course...so the oxytocin was upped and upped...finally after what seemed like forever of pushing, and almost fainting because of the lack of sleep..they vacuumed her out. =( NOT what I was expecting nor wanting.

    But she's here! And doing awesome! No breathing support, no IV, no anything really. She has had some bradys and faster breathing but nothing major. She is tolerating her feeds if they are breast milk, which I am not getting much of yet. They haven't let me hold her again, which sucks and makes NO sense!

    Anyways...here she is!
