Lena is here :)

Thanks to pre-e and rising BP and protein levels, I was induced starting Monday night @37w

They tried to induce me for 24 hours, but I stalled out at 4-5cm and had a c/s last night. I am completely in love with our sweet little Lena Kathryn.

8lbs 9oz 21.75in. She has a head full of curly dark hair like mine.

At first, she had some issues keeping her temp stable, but we've been spending a lot of time doing kangaroo care and she hasn't had issues since. She is also a little jaundiced and spending some time under the bili lights, but otherwise doing well and has really started to breastfeed like a champ :)

but simply moving on with dignity despite that fear."
