After weeks of consistent contractions, a hospital visit to stop pre-term labor, being dilated to almost 4 and effaced 80%. I decided to be induced 2 days early from my due date.
Last picture with baby bump. Headed into the hospital at 7:00 am.
I was first given pitocin to start things off, then got an epidural before the pain started and had my water broken. Once they broke my water I went from a 4 to a 10 in less then 2 hours. Good thing the doctor stuck around. And after 10 minutes of pushing-baby girl was born!
Bigger than we all guessed. I thought for sure she was smaller then Camryn who was 6.15 lbs. I now know why my back hurt so bad for so long.
Once we moved to recovery we had visitors
Camryn checking out her new sister. She wasn't so sure about her at first and even said, " You can put THAT baby back in there if you want." Referring to the bassinet. Things could only get better from there.
Family of 4-such a cute face, I am bummed it turned out so blurry!
Grandpa & Grandma of 3 girls now-little different than their 4 boys they raised.
Proud daddy-so much better the second time around!
The second day in the hospital I was spoiled. Lots of sleep and help from the nursery, yogurtland and friends. Doesn't get much better than that-in a hospital that is.
Marsha, Brittany, Ashly, Kristy & Moranda. It was so nice to have visitors. I didn't have this experience with Camryn. The hospital was a nightmare and so we left within 24 hours. This time around the food was good, the room & nurses were so nice and best of all it was amazing quiet time for me and Reagan. We are one happy family of 4! Now I guess it is time we change our blog. Good bye 3 Smarts and a Dog!
