Casey Virginia was born 10 Jan 2008 weighing in at 10 lbs and 21 inches. Doctor was a little off when he said she was like 7.5 to 8 lbs. She came at 40 weeks and 1 day.
My water broke at 5:30am on the 10th this was after having 6 min contractions all night that were pretty mild. I called the hospital and they said take my time so I showered and ran around getting my bag ready. I got to the hospital around 715am. They checked and I was 4 cm. So me and DH hung out and watched TV as my contractions got stronger. Around 11am they went ahead and hooked up the epidural. I really love those and I'm glad I had it for the end part! They started me on pitocin around 1pm and when they checked me around 4:30pm I was ready to go. I pushed for 1 1/2 hours and I was worried I was doing it wrong but she came out and weighed so much so now i know why it took so long! She scored 9 on the apgar. We're getting pretty good at the breastfeeding thing and her big sister likes to help already!
