Baby #6 is here and it's a.....


[SIZE=2]I'm still in shock! Amaris Piper arrived after a quick labor and one push! She weighed 8lbs and 15 oz and is 19.5 inches long. I checked into the hospital at midnight and was already contracting on my own abut every 4 minutes. I was 3 at 1:45am and a 4 at 6:00am. They started pitocin at about 6:15 and by the time doc broke my water at 8:00, I was 5-6. Got the epidural at about 8:45 and by 9:20 I was 8. Epi worked great although I could tell the contractions were getting bad b/c I started to feel slight cramping. Nurse noticed baby's heart rate had dipped a little and checked me at about 9:50. I was complete and at zero station. She called my doc who rushed over (her office is right next to the hospital). She came in, got her gear on and they broke down the table. The nurse said "don't cough or laugh too hard!". I pushed once and Amaris was born at 10:06 am. I'm still amazed at how fast it went and that I have a daughter!! I was convinced it was a boy. Her daddy and brothers are in love (esp my 4 year old who was convinced the whole time it was a girl). She is beautiful and perfect Smile I'm feeling good just sore. I tore just a little I think b/c she came out so fast. She has a full head of hair that's dark with blonde tips. She looks like she got her hair frosted!

I'm totally late too, but CON-FLIPPIN-GRATS!!! Omg Belinda, I can't believe it's a little girl either. Must be all that pink dust we were sprinkling you with in the beginning. Wink I agree with the PP, her dimples are so cute too. Did you go on a girly shopping spree yet?

Congrats Belinda! I'm so happy for you and your family! I'm especially happy for sweet Amaris. She's going to love being the little sister to all those boys (speaking from experience!).

Thanks everyone! It still feels weird buying pink things. I ordered a bunch of hairbows and headbands the day after we got home from the hospital Smile We went yesterday and bought a princess growth chart, a pink basket for her hairbows, and wood letters of her name for the wall Smile
