My baby girl finally arrived yesterday. Samantha Laura was born on 10/9 at 12:32pm. As it turns out, she wouldn't leave because there were good eats in there- she was 10 pounds, 3 ounces!!
There isn't much of a birth story. I was scheduled for induction Tuesday night but had a size ultrasound first on Monday. They estimated her at 11lbs in the ultrasound so they switched my appointment to a c-section Tuesday morning. I was actually relieved because I had a miserable recovery from delivery my 9lb 3 oz daughter vaginally. The c-section went well and I stayed pretty calm although I got a little sweaty/shaky when they were doing the spinal. She ended up not being quite 11 pounds but I think the right decision was made as she was still very big (and I forgot to mention sunny side up). I felt great for the following 24 hours because of the iv mess although the pain has kicked in quite a bit since that wore off. Everyone tells me that today is usually worse pain wise so I look forward to tomorrow.
I will post pictures when I get home- I don't have my computer with me (or can I photobucket from my phone?)
Anyway, we're both doing well, she's perfectly healthy and sweet!
I forgot to add that Laura is my mom's middle name. Alexis has Walter's mom's name , Victoria, as her middle name. My mom was very excited.
