Savannah Rose is here!!!!- Update in op

Hi All! Just a quick announcement that after a 27 hour labor (yikes!) Savannah Rose arrived yesterday. Weighing 7lbs 7 oz and 21 1/2 in length. She is doing great and I can't wait to show you all the cute pictures of her in her cloth diapers!

Christy

Thank you everyone for your warm wishes! We're home now and so happy to have her here! Our birth story is very long and I'm still not quite sure about how to tell it but I'll try. On Sunday at around 1:30 pm I started having contractions that were every 3 minutes apart and lasting around a minute each. So we headed to the hospital and got there around 4pm . By this time the contractions were 2 minutes apart lasting over a minute but not extremely painful. The nurse checked me and I was at 3cm 75% effaced. She said she would call the doctor on call. Well, 10 pm came around and I'm still having the same contractions so she checked and nothing changed! So she says do you want pitocin to try to get them stronger and I said yes. So she comes back around midnight and mentions that I'm group B strep positive (a little late eh?) and starts me on the pit and medicine and now I'm trapped in bed. :-( So we do this for about 4 more hours and I was exhausted so we begged her to check me again and nothing changed. I was still 3cm 75% ! Then our very "sweet nurse" ( please notice sarcasism) says to me "those are bh's, you guys come back when your in real labor". And we left the hospital. We went down to my doctors office around 10am the next morning because I was STILL having the contractions every 2 minutes and no one had told her a thing about me! The nurse never called anyone. We wondered why we had seen no doctors the whole night. My doctor was livid! So we go back to the hospital and they start the GBS medicine then after a little bit she broke my waters and I had Savannah like about 2 hours after that. I really wish they would've broke my waters on Sunday... next time home birth!

I am so happy to have her and she is the sweetest baby and a great nurser. I love her so much!!!!! Here are some pictures:
