Our daughter, M, has been born!
Interested in her birth story? See below.
My labour with her was entirely slow and boring until it wasn’t.
In the span of an hour and a half: I went from a cervix that was taking YEARS to dilate, to her heart rate dropping and there being a very good potential of a scary, emergency c-section. But, the induction medication was stopped, she rallied back, and my cervix woke the heck up and went VERY VERY quickly to 10CM. Less than 18 pushes later she was here.
How it ended? I was told to stop halfway on my last push (with baby’s head already out!) as the OBGYN had left the room, thinking it would take longer. I laughed ‘cause the same dang thing happened with O, and my laughter finished pushing her out of me. Oops. Sorry guys, lol!
She’s healthy, getting good at latching, and doing a great job at already making us tired.
We love you, baby girl. 💚
