She's Here!

I know many of you have been checking in so I wanted to pop on here to let everyone know that Isabella Brooke is here! I'm making this a fast post but will get pictures up after we get home(hopefully tomorrow night).

I got here at about 7:30am. They hooked me up to Pitocin and the doctor broke my water at about 9. My contractions were HORRIBLE almost immediately after my water broke and I asked for an epidural. While getting the epidural I kept feeling the urge to push and was having a hard time staying still because I had these painful contractions about every 1 minute. The epidural ended up only working on one side but that was better than nothing.

She didn't believe that I was feeling the urge to push but finally checked me anyway. I was completely dilated and we could see her head. We tried to hold off on pushing and I was on my side hoping that the epidural would work on that side. The doctor said I just needed to deliver because Isabella wasn't waiting any longer.

It only took 6 minutes of pushing and she was here! She arrived at 10:40 weighing 8 pounds 4 ounces and she's 20 inches. She looks a lot like her brother did and I think she looks like her daddy but everyone says they can see me in her too. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Slee said...

my epidural, btw, only worked well in my right leg, and had the overall effect of an ice pack on the right side of my belly, and the left was pretty much on it's own. hence i wouldn't get another epidural.
i'm so glad that your delivery went so quickly.

Beth said...

Congratulations. I hope you both are doing well. Can't wait to see photos.
