Baby Leila Rose arrived at 4:45 AM on 12/12/12--how cool is that??? Biggrin She weighs 7 lbs 5 oz and is 19 inches long, much smaller than I was guessing she was! LOL Labor was tough . . . I opted for an epidural but it was too late! They put it in but Leila was born about 15 minutes later so I think it took the edge off but I sure felt A WHOLE LOT! I'll update more as soon as we get home on Friday, but for now, we are doing great! She has tons of hair and is just so tiny and precious! I feel amazing. We had shut the epidural off right after she arrived so I never really got numb; even so, I don't have much pain at all. I'm tired from being up all night but I'm so excited that I can't sleep!!

Congrats Jamie and WTTW little Leila!:party:

It sounds like you had a fantastic (and quick!) birth despite not getting the pain relief you wanted. Can't wait to hear your full birth story and see pictures when you're all settled in at home.

Ahhhhh those are great! OMG! Our hospital does the most chincy (sp?) pics ever and even then, they're only of the baby and not with parents included. Are they very expensive? They turned out great and you look beautiful too. I'd be screaming 'Photoshop! Stat!' for my pics. Wink

It was expensive . . . the biggest package--the one I really wanted to get, LOL--was $279. Ugh!!! So we went with the lowest package we could get that still had printing rights from the CD and it comes with birth announcements and 20--5x7s. It was $159. But this way, I won't have to take the baby out so early to get newborn shots. I wish my other kiddos could have been in the pics but no kids under 14 were allowed in the hospital.

Jamie, those turned out great! Leila is beautiful! Our hospital doesn't do pictures like that, so it's nice that you were able to get them done there.
