Hi! We had our baby girl! Skya Camille Staeheli was born on Saturday, September 24th, 2005 at 7:32 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 1 oz and is healthy, happy and as cute as can be! She was born with a full head of black hair.

I worked on Friday, September 23rd. At work, I lost my mucus plus, so I thought maybe something was happening. I made it throught the work day, then that night at around 7pm I started having a pain in my stomache. I wasn't sure if it was contractions or not, because it wasn't what I was expecting. I started timing them just to be sure. DH went to bed and I stayed out on the couch, watching the clock and writing down the time every time I felt a pain. By 4 in the morning they were 5 minutes apart and I thought I better go to the hospital. I woke DH up and we got there at 4:45am. They checked me and I was dilated to 3cm. By 10am I had the epidural and everything went smoothly. The contractions were not even that bad. The tough part was laying on my side all day long. Every time they checked me I was barely progressing. They kept upping the Pitocin and I finally got to almost 10cm, but a little bit of lip left. But the baby just wouldn't come down. Even when I was fully dilated the baby's head was still high and the doctor said she was "molding". Her head was already coning and I hadn't even started pushing yet! So, my pelvic area was just too small to pass a baby. At 6:45 pm the doctor decided to perform a C-Section. By then I was fine with that, I just wanted it over with, and wanted my baby to be born, which ever way it took! Skya Camille Staeheli arrived at 7:42 pm, and she was perfect!
