She's here...... :-)

Omg so excited my baby Iris Elaine was born today 1:36pm. I went in yesterday morning at 4am to be induced and by 7-7:30pm or so they took me off potocin drip, and placed cervidil strip in me at 9pm. This morning woke up with some contractions but nothing to get me excited, and I woke up early about 6am. I tell you at 9am my contractions were coming every 5 min and strong. Got the cervidil out at 9:30 and epidural by 10am. By then I was dilated 4cm. I started pushing st 1:15pm and she was out at 1:36pm. She was 6lb even 19 in. She was just a peanut.  Lol. I guess that lets you know I have the major part of the weight left on me. I still look 4months pregnant.  Lol. They just took her to the nurser because her temp isn't high enough.  @ loveontop your next.

I have been waiting on your post!! I feel so special to be included! :) Congratulations on the arrival of your daughter, Iris!!
I received a call from L&D and they are having a lot of deliveries and don't have a bed for me. They want me to call at 9 and should have something then. I'm really hoping so.
Good luck and best wishes!
