I know its been almost three years since she was born, but I still remember every detail like it was yesterday.

33 weeks.... I was dilated to 3cm and almost fully effaced. I was put on bed rest in the hospital where I stayed for 2 weeks and then I was sent home.... At 35 weeks (July 31) I went in for my regular check up and I was 6cm and fully effaced and my water bag was bulging so off to the hospital we went! I knew that she was going to be born early but I was so ready to meet my little lady! Once I got to the hospital and changed into a gown I went to sit down on the bed and my water broke, they got me hooked up to all the monitors and I was having contractions every 2 min and they lasted for 45seconds each. I never felt a single contraction, they still dont know why I was unable to feel them. Once I got my epidural I had a immediate reaction to the medication and they had to remove it, for some reason it stopped my dilation. So after 13 hours labor and 2 hours of pushing my little miracle was finally here! She was tiny but had all ten toes ten fingers one head .... all the parts were counted for and she was beautiful.'

At 17 weeks she turned head down and at 20 weeks she was in the birth canal. So she had a VERY big cone head and she would just cry this sweet little cry when anyone touched it, it was so sad.

She ended up having some respiratory problems and jaundice, I hated seeing her in the "baby tanning bed" as my husband called it!

She was Daddy's little Princess right from the start, and she still has him wrapped around her little fingers!

Finally, after two weeks in the hospital we were ready to take her home! She looked so small in her carseat!

Aww, thanks for posting her birth story! I can't believe you didn't feel those contractions I was so surprised to see the picture of her head and how much it had molded--how long did it take to correct itself? She's a very pretty little lady
