Hey Jess! Yes..I did have her. I was a week early. I had her last saturday (2/11). I will post the entire story shortly, but to make a long story short, I got home friday night from a baby shower some coworkers threw for me. I carried everything up to my apartment and then went to the bathroom. I flushed the toilet, pulled my pants up and felt a gush!! My water had just broke!!! It was weird too because I was just at the dr earlier in the day and he said I was dialated to a 1....being generous. By the time I got to the hospital I was a 4-5 they said. I couldn't believe it. I got the epidural right away, though I really wasn't in pain...just pressure. At about 4am, they started pitocin. By 8:30am I was pushing. I pushed for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I had a beautiful baby girl (Bridget). She weighted 7lb 9 oz. and 21 inches long. I did tear, but not bad. I also have minor roids, but I am feeling a lot better...especially now that I am home. I am struggling with bf. I have a lot of blisters and soreness. I feel like giving up at times. I am going to try and stick it out though. All in all it was a great experience and like everyone says, it was worth it!! The time really flew by.

Congrats jb!!! That is awesome. Our little girls were the same weight. Alyssa was 7 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 1/4 inches long!!! That is so funny that there is another similarity between us. The first few days of b___st feeding were really rough for me too. It is alot better now. I found that slathering my nipples with lanolin cream after each feeding helped. I have been posting on the b___stfeeding and infant care forum. See you there!!!!
