Hey girls!
Linds is in labor! I knew she was close last night when we talked, and she went in overnight. She called at 6:15 frustrated.....no cervix changes, but intense ctx. The staff is offering her the lovely pitocin drip to get things going. She is trying more things to avoid the pit/epi combo. I'll keep you all updated! I'm so excited my niece Lacey will be here soon!

I talked with MIL about an hour ago, and no baby yet. STUBBORN! Linds did end up having to go on pit, and is much happier with an epidural. Send lots of positive thoughts b/c Miss Lacey has meconium in her fluid. Now knowing that, its a good thing they are trying to spped it up. It's just not healthy to float in poopy water!

Hopefully that pit will help get baby Lacey out of the yucky water quickly!
Thanks for the update!

Well, it's about darn time. Lacey is starting her life off as quite the little troublemaker! Lindsay finally had a C-section this evening, after pushing for more than two hours. Lacey was posterior, in meconium, and had the cord around her neck. I'm so thankful they are both healthy and doing well, because there are alot of places that her labor could have gone down hill with a baby in distress. She is 8 pounds and three ounces, and I don't know any more details at the moment. My MIL has only seen/talked to lindsays DH, and she said he didn't look so hot. So, I can only imagine how poor Linds feels. I always hate it for girls who don't get the NCB they want, but I'm always happy in the end when Mom and baby are healthy. Even more so in this case since it's my SIL and niece!!!

Poor Lindsay. I hope she is able to get plenty of rest tonight. Sometimes things are just out of our control, no matter how hard we try!
She and Lacey are in my thoughts!

It sounds like she had quite a rough time. I'm sorry that she didn't get her NCB but congrats on a healthy baby and mama! Can't wait to see pics.

Congrats to her! What a labor, but I'm sure she is glad to have her little girl finally in her arms!
