    I already posted on the Dec. 06 board,but CONGRATS again Laurie. She is precious!
    An update on me...I had my week 38 appointment today (although I am closer to 39), and I have not dilated at all! I was so disappointed. The baby's head is low though and in perfect position. The dr. wants to induce me if the baby hasn't arrived by January 8th ( I would be 41.5 weeks)....I certainly hope she gets here way before that though...her due date is the 30th, next Saturday. Send me some labor vibes next week!

    JULIA IS HERE!!!!!!!

    Hi everyone! I just wanted to take what few minutes I have and let you all know that Julia is finally here. She was born this past wednesday and weighed 6lbs 13oz...and is as perfect as she can be. Pics are attached. Here is her birth story:

    I went to my 38 week appointment on Tuesday and was 1cm dilated. The OB offered to do a membrane sweep...to which I said yes. It was SO painful (but obviously it worked and was worth it in the end!) I cramped for the rest of the day but did not have any signs that it had worked...until I woke up the next morning. I woke at 6:30 and headed strait to the bathroom and was JUST about to sit on the toilet when a gush of water came out. I thought that I had peed myself, but as I sat down the rest of the way, I realized that I still had to go. All of a sudden reality hit...and I called DH who was already at work. He got back home about an hour later and we headed to the hospital.

    We got into Triage pretty quickly and I was checked...still only 1 cm! At that point I was told that I was GBS+, which was a shock since NO ONE had informed me of that during my OB visits! I was told that I would have to go on penicillin and be on it for 4 hours prior to any delivery. I was told that b/c I was GBS + and that my water had already broken, that I should get hooked up to an IV and start the pitocin. It took them over 3 HOURS to get me into a labor room and get me hooked up. I was SO mad that I was in Triage for that long...but I guess many babies had decided that they too wanted to come into the world that day! Once in the labor room, I was told that I was lucky to have even gotten a room....and that some women were in the halls waiting!

    At about 8pm, I was fully dilated and began pushing. I could not believe the pain that I was in...after all I had had an epidural put in JUST for that purpose. Unfortunatly, I dont think that it took completely....it totally sucked! I labored for over 2 and a half hours and gave birth FINALLY at 10:47 that night. I surprised myself with the whole thing...but I just kept focusing on the end result and got thru the pain of it all.

    We got home late Friday night and have been operating on just a few hours of sleep a night. Breastfeeding has been going a bit better, but got off to a rough start. Her latch is not the best and she was not getting what she needed at first. Unfortunately, I had to supplement with formula for the first few days...but now that my milk is coming in I am happy to say that I am able to keep her satisfied. I rented a pump and I think that it was one of the best decisions that I made...it really does help with the engorgement and the times when my nipples are too raw and painful for her to latch on.

    Anyway, that is it...it is finally over and I have the best Christmas gift in the world. Who needs anything else when God blesses you with such a precious gift. I am so in love....
