I forgot to do this yesterday!

I don't have a formal birth story written up but her entrance in the world was very different than I expected! Being my third baby I was expecting a very quick labor but things just would not progress! I started having contractions around 8 am when I was meeting with my son's teacher. They were consistently 5-7 minutes apart the entire day and wouldn't get closer together despite membrane sweeps and walking all around the woods for a few miles. Finally things got really uncomfortable and I was tired so we went to the hospital around 10pm. With the help of some pitocin, she finally arrived soon after midnight. It was such a long and exhausting day but she was so worth it! I was so worried about hemorhaging, but everything went just fine with lots of precautions and I was able to get up and walk around sooner than I was able to after my sons were born. I felt great!

Here are some photos.

Some babies' features change so much in the first few months but she still looks like she did when she was born, just bigger! So cute! <3
