Carina's birth story

Short version:

Carina Shannyn was born at 38w3d on 12/28 at 8:27 AM weighing in at 6 lbs 14 oz; 19 inches long after about 13 hours of labor.  My bag of waters was leaking and I mistook it for cervical fluid for about 3 days (oops).  It got worse on Monday morning and I had to be induced.  Baby arrived after 4 hours of pushing.  We are home now and are both doing great.

  • I opted to read the long version. Thank you for sharing. You know, I never had a solif birth plan, and I had printed out copies of my birth plan and threw them out a few hours into labor. The only thing that I am bummed about was not breastfeeding immediatly after having the baby. But then again, 22 hours later after working an 8 hour shift and staying up until 3am, I was so exhausted I don't know how I could even stand. So I just miss the fact that things are a bit of a blur now, but hey... These kids dont always give us what we bargained for.
  • i read the longer version on your blog. thanks for sharing! she's just beautiful :)
