3/2 Birth of Willow Rowan

Cross posted from DDB.

Willow Rowan was born at 10:14 am on March 2nd.

The short story:
(will elaborate later)
She was over a week late by the U/S dates and over 2 weeks late by my charting and starting to get decels in her heart rate. After days and days of my Doctor trying to talk us into an induction, we finally agreed to come in on Friday morning and allow her to give one low dose of Pit. When we arrived at the hospital at 6am, I was already dilated to a 5 and having very light contractions. Because I really did not want any form of intervention and wanted to labor naturally, I asked if there was another option. Doc agreed to break my waters at 7:00 am and see if that got things going. Contractions got stronger immediately and started coming every 3-5 minutes. Less than 3 hours later, with no other interventions, and after only 2 pushes Willow came screaming into the world.
This "huge" baby that the Doctor said was measuring over 42 weeks and in "distress" turned out to be a little peanut at 7lbs 11oz.
She is nursing like a champ and her big brothers are in love with her.

Just after birth:

Meeting brothers and Nana

Coming home outfit (Thank you Victoria!)



Day 2:


Day 3 - she is already trying to hold her head up!
Lil Joeys are the perfect fit.





(Thanks to Lauren for this super cute set!)

she is adorable! Glad you were able to stick to the type of birth that you wanted and didn't have to go with the pit! She doesn't look "overcooked" at all
