    Sophie Adriana has arrived...

    Born: December 18th
    Time: 10:48 am
    Weight: 8 pounds 4 oz
    Length: 20.5 inches

    I got home from the hospital Tuesday night, but I have been too busy to post! Anyway, here is the birth story for Sophie...

    I was told at my appointment on Thursday, dec. 14th that I was easily 3 centimeters dialated and 70% effaced. My doc said that if I didn't go into labor over the weekend that he would be willing to induce me Monday morning. I agreed to this as I was anxious to meet my new little girl and get her home for Christmas.

    I arrived at the hospital at 6:00 am Monday, dec 18th for the induction. I spent the first hour and a half just being monitored. Then at 7:40 am they started me on some pitocin and said that I could go walk in the halls to try and get things started. Not a whole lot happened. I felt maybe 3 extremely light contractions over the next hour. At 8:30 am my doctor arrived and said that he would break my water to get things going. So, he checked me... I was still 3 centimeters dialated, and broke my water at 8:40 am. Within one minute after my water was broke I felt my first painful contraction. I told the nurse I wanted to get in the tub. I got in the tub and I very quickly realized that I needed more then water to deal with the contractions. I got an epidural soon after. I then felt MUCH better (after an initial episode where my bp crashed, but that was quickly resolved). At 10:20 am (just a little over an hour and a half after my water was broke) I told the nurse that I felt a lot of presure. She checked me and her eyes got big. She said the baby's head was crowning. My doc was called and at about 10:30 am I started pushing. The baby's head was buldging the entire time, and I gently pushed. With dd I was giving a HUGE episiotomy by that doc, but this time the doc just gently let me push. It BURNED so bad, but after about 20 minutes of pushing Sophie Adriana was born! Only a three hour labor!!

    I got to help pull Sophie out and then they helped me lay her on my belly. She was there for the next three hours before they took her off of me to do ANY procedures. She latched on about 10 minutes after she was born and breastfed for 2 straight hours! She is a nursing champ and my milk came in about 46 hours after she was born.

    Here are some pics...

    Oh, and here is a picture of my baby at the 9.5 week u/s. It is a little blurry, but I love it!



    We've also come up with a nickname for the baby, Desmo! DH came up with it because we like motorcycles, and the Ducati is famous for an engine they build called the Desmodouce (sp?). DH thinks that is what the baby's heartbeat sounds like when we use the doppler!
