We delivered May 28th!

Hi All,

I haven't posted much since my second trimester, but these forums were really crucial for me during the first half of my pregnancy (especially after previous miscarriages) and I appreciate you all!

I delievered my baby girl Quinn Suzanne last Wednesday May 28th.  Click on my profile to see pictures of my beautiful daughter!  7 lbs 2 oz 20.5" long.

I went in for induction in the morning, already 4 cm dilated.  The whole thing took 2 1/2 hours!  I got my epidural when I was 6 cm dilated, but then dilated to 10 in 15 minutes!  So I had to push before the epidural had a chance to work completely (Ouch!).  I only pushed through 5 contractions, so I can't complain.

I hope you all have it that easy and quick!

I also haven't been on here for awhile but I also was induced and delivered on the 28th! I had a little  boy, Jackson David. He is my first and I had a GREAT labor and delivery. Not as quick as yours (11 hours) but still good for the first time. I was able to push him out with 5 contractions also. I also had two miscarriages before this. He weighed 8 lbs. 9 oz and was 21 inches long.

Congratulations on your little girl!

She is a doll. I had the same thing happen to me with the epidural. Its a new kinda pain but its worth every bit of it. My little boy Knox Riddick was born on the 23rd thanks to an induction. I was 5cm when I went in. Congrats and enjoy her.
