April 2014 Moms

Welcome to the world, Alera Grace! (SoulTermination)

Born at 6:20am on Tuesday, April 8th. 8 pounds, 8 ounces, 20 inches long.

Will update with our story probably when we get home from the hospital, since I'll be somewhat more coherent then, but here are some quick details:

Caved and got an epidural around 10-11pm Monday night. I was in tears and begging for it, and I have no regrets.

Delayed clamping and immediate skin-to-skin wasn't achieved, since OB needed to use both vacuum and forceps in order to help me get her out, but the required NICU team at her delivery said she was perfect.

And... sadly, I wound up with a vagasshole. :((
