1-4-2010 @ 10:45am 7lbs 5oz 19in long.
OK, so we got there Monday morning at 6am. They got us right into a room, did a bunch of paperwork, started my IV. Got pitocin going at 6:55am. around 7:30 they decided to break my water. (cervix closest to baby was a 4) about 8:45 I was SCREAMING for an epidural. lol I was 7cm at that point. I asked the nurse how long I had to wait for the epidural and she said 12minutes (to get the bag of fluids in me) and I was in the middle of a contraction and since i was screaming anyways i screamed "I can't do this for 12 more minutes." lol dh though i was yelling AT the nurse. he said "Liz.." in a tone that meant "cool your temper" i raised a finger to him and said "SHUT IT" he didn't say anything the whole rest of the time. just held my hand when I let him. lol I didn't want anyone touching me while I was laboring. Finally the epi lady came in and gave me my epi I officially got it started at like 9:05am. I knew i was feeling better because 1. i wasn't screaming anymore 2. I was making jokes. Also while I was getting my epi, dh was holding my hand and I had to tell him that I was supposed to squeeze his hand, not him squeeze my hand. At 10:35 i said "i need to push" they didn't let me because the doc wasn't in the room and they were still setting up everything. they made me wait through one more contractions...boy that was hard!!! So FINALLY the doc was getting her gown on in front of me and i told her to hurry up because i needed to push, she sat down and i started pushing...5minutes later she was here.
Okay seriously she is adorable. CONGRATS!!!

She is beautiful Liz. How much did she weigh?
Everyone says Allie looks like Jamie, but I never see it either lol, but yea, I think she looks a LOT like Eli.
Allie does look like Jamie!!! I think that all the time when i see updated pictures!
oh, when I saw the doctor again yesterday before discharge, she asked if i had been taking my pre-natals consistently through my pregnancy. I confessed that I had not. and she told me that i was severely anemic and if i hadn't been pregnant and just had a baby they would transfuse me!! So, she wants me to take prenatals to see if that helps get my iron up.
Congrats and WTTW baby Charlotte. I'm glad things went pretty well for you. SHe is adorable of course!
