Introducing Abigail Celia

Just wanted to introduce our little "honeymoon souvenier".....She arrived Thursday at 1:01 and is doing great. The doctor decide to induce a week early because she had slowed down in growth and was worried that my placenta might have reached the end of it's shelf life (she is my first and I'm no spring chicken ) We went in for the induction at 7:00, started medication at 8:30, and then shocked everyone by going from 3 cm to 9 cm in an hour when they re-checked me at 11:00! Managed to avoid an episiotomy thanks to in part to a fantastic labor nurse, and also was blessed with a great epidural (I have great respect for all you mamas who do this without meds but I'm a wimp). She weighed 5 lbs 13.4 oz and was 18.5 inches and is doing great. We are just battling latching issues right now and have been unable to use any new fluff 'cause she is so little but she'll get there soon! I'll put up a pic as soon as my sleep deprived brain figures out how. I'm sure I'll be posting for all kinds of advice soon.....

Re: Introducing Abigail Celia

Congrats mama!! can't wait to see pics of your baby girl! I go really fast once I get an epi. With my last dd I went from 3cm, getting an epi and then within an hour I was 10cm and had her within 2ctz, 4 pushes. It went super fast for me too! I was the same way with my oldest too!

Anyways, congrats again on your dd. I loveit: her name!
