*yawn* Hi everyone! *double yawn*
Well well well...lookie what showed up on May 9th:
That's right, Miss Rosalind Louise was born at 5:32am a week ago today and a day or two before I was able to crochet up this hat and use it in the hospital photos. :D Everything went well, actually things went at light speed so we've decided that this little one will be nicknamed, "Zippy". lol
To put this in perspective: I was induced with Toot so I didn't experience any of the usual labor stuff. No water breaking, no pre-labor, nada, none. Zippy went a day overdue but once she was ready...WOOOOOOSH!
I woke up at 3:00 in the morning with pains and thoughts, "Hmmm, that's different." I woke the husband at 3:30 and waited for a call back from the midwife. At about 4:30 with no call I said, "Nuts to this, we better go!" and off we went to the hospital. They totally didn't believe I was close enough to be admitted so I got stuck in triage.
But only for about 5 minutes because when they checked me, I was 8cm dilated already so I was FINALLY checked in. We got to a room and about 5:10 I said, "I gotta push!" andddddddddd at 5:32...ta da! Funny enough, the guy coming to give me an epidural showed up 5 minutes after Zippy was born, thanks for nothing buster!
But you know, going natural's not so bad when it only takes 20 minutes. LOL Now we're on to trying to grab sleep whenever we can. Toot is handling things pretty well so far. Thanks for all of your well wishes and congrats here, on Facebook and Twitter, we so appreciate it!
Now if you will excuse me, someone is hungry...again...and again...
