Hi guys, I had my baby this morning at 8 a.m. after a long night of labor! She is super healthy, apgars were 9 and 10, came out pink and screaming. She is about 8 1/2 lbs and 21 in long! She is already a daddy's girl as DH is great at soothing her. She did not latch on right away with nursing but finally this afternoon she had a few great latch and suck sessions, I think she'll be a great nurser with a little practice.

I had a lot of natural labor starting yesterday evening, but once I got to the hospital (at 6 cm and 90% effaced) I stopped progressing completely despite many natural measures - so I got pitocin, then the pit contractions were too much for me and I was again not progressing, so I got an epidural, and pushed her out soon after. Still waiting for my leg to stop being numb I am happy that I went for a natural birth and I don't regret any of the decisions that were made, everything worked out well as baby and I are both doing great!

I probably won't be around much for awhile but just wanted to share the news!!!!!
