It all started Friday morning at 8 30 am I went in to start my day off and get induced. They put one tablet of cervadil in and let go walk around for a few hours to see if I could get things going. Then I went back to the hospital and they checked me at 3pm no change in my cervix. Then at at 4pm they came back I was 3cm dilated so they broke my water in hopes that thing would start to progress. The doc kept a close eye on me cause after he broke my water the baby's head floated away. They checked my cervix again and they could not find the head at all. So they tried to puch from the outside to find the position. Then they called in for an u/s cause they thought the baby was transverse. When the tachnician arrived she confirmed that the baby was indeed transverse. So at this point I was being sent off for a c-section. So they gave me my spinal at about 9pm and 9:59 my baby entered the world. ITS A GIRL!!!!! We named her Alexia Mackenna she weighed in at 8 lbs 5 ounces and 19.5 inches. She is beautiful. I am so happy that I finally got my little girl perfect ending to our little family. She is really good and alls she does is sleep. The nursing is going well as well. The only thing that is hard is trying to recuperate. It felt like it was my very first birth. I have to take it as easy as possible cause my blood pressure is really low and my hemoglobin levels as well. So the hardest part is trying to sit still. I finally got home today after being in there since Friday and my boys missed me like crazy. Well just thought I would share my story. Hope to hear everyone elses soon. Good Luck!!!! Cant wait to go shopping for all the pink stuff I have always dreamt about!!!

Thanks everyone!! I love finally getting to be a mom to a baby girl. It feels like im a first time mother all over again from the birth as well. The hardest thing though is not being able to hold my 15 month old he looks at me with such sad eyes wanting me to pick him up. It is so hard not to be able to comfort him.The recovery is so different this time around. I can barely walk. This morning I could not even get out of bed. Im not used to not being able to do anything.Hopefully I can get back up on my feet soon. I have to go pick up a couple sleepers today since I have absolutely nothing for a girl. Well thanks again ladies. Hope you all are holding your babys soon.
