Not quite the birth I wanted
 
I never did update here, but 3 weeks ago I had my daughter Rilynn Grace, after a 3 day induction due to IUGR.

I never did get my homebirth.

Once labor got started it was almost pain killer free. I did ask for a shot of Fentinol, which did absolutely nothing!

Here she is just mins old

AWWW!!! She's so cute!!! Great job!!! I'm sure you did amazing! I'm sorry things did not go as planned. Were there any indicating factors when she was born pointing to reasons for her IUGR? One of my best friends was induced for this 3 years ago, and her son had a 2 vessel cord that seemed to be the culprit.

When my midwife and OB was looking at the placenta with us, they mentioned tiny spots that might indicate aging and they also said her cord was a bit thinner then normal.
But they both said, most likely she was just a small baby (though she had shown no growth for 6 weeks).

She's definitely healthy lol she only lost an oz before leaving the hospital and then started gaining right away.

I progressed really quickly, so things got intense and hard to manage.
I also got really dizzy which made me anxious.
I had been practicing my hypnobabies stuff, but just couldn't do it once my labor started.
