I know this is kind of late but I've been busy being stuck in mommy
mode for the last two weeks. But our baby girl is finally here! I went
into active labor at 3:00 am on my due date (August 20th) and gave birth
to our beautiful baby girl, Mckenna, at 4:30 pm that same day. I pushed
for 45 minutes so altogether I was in labor for 13 1/2 hours. I'd have
to say that is pretty good for our first. The first 5 hours were hard. I
was having terrible back labor but once I got the epidural I was
feeling SO much better. Finally at about 1 in the afternoon the doctor
broke my water. There was meconium in the fluid so once I gave birth to
her I couldn't see her right away but once they wiped her off and
weighed her they handed her over. She was just as beautiful as can be!
She weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces and was 19 inches long.
