She's Here!!

And she is fabulous! Friday was one of the best days of my life. We went to the hospital at 6:30 am to be induced. I was dressed in my gown and hooked up to pitocin by 7:45. The doctor came in around 10 and broke my water and then we waited.
I started feeling contractions and thought hmm these aren't bad I could totally do this. Then by 2pm I was in pain and called a nurse in to check me. I thought surely I had progressed pretty far. NOPE I was at a 2. That's when I instantly knew I was getting an epidural. I was just praying that a 4 came soon so I could get one. By 4pm I was at a 4! And super pumped to get the meds. However they just changed my IV bag and I had to wait that out. Maggie warned me about this....but there was nothing I could do. So at 5:30 it was time for the epidural and it couldn't come soon enough I was in a lot of pain. I seriously have no idea how people do it without medication. So from about 2-5:30 was a little rough, but I made it.
Someone came in around 6 to check me and I was still at a 4, I was getting pretty discouraged. Kolby and I didn't bother sharing that lack of progress with anyone. Around 8:30 someone came back to check me and I was a 5. Again I was getting bummed, but trying to stay positive. At 9:30 a nurse came in because Evelyn's heart rate was going crazy. She wasn't going to check me since I had just been checked an hour earlier but did it just to see what was going on. I was a 9!!! Heck yes, best news I had heard all day. I was feeling a lot of pressure then. The doctor rolled in around 10:45 and I was pushing by 11. She was here by 11:38 pm.
I love my doctor, I loved my nurses. That hospital is seriously the best.
I also love my husband, he is so amazing. He was super supportive and so super sweet. I could not have done that without him.

And here is our little girl. She was 7lbs 6oz and 20 1/2 inches long and super cute!

Let's pretend

Let's pretend like my due date never got moved...That would mean THIS Sunday would be the big day, because she would arrive on time of course. She knows I'm a punctual person and hates being late, she is the same.

My Newborn Picture:
Based on the 3d ultrasound we have I think she may already have my nose.

Kolby's Newborn Picture:How cute is he????? I could just gobble up that cute little face, I hope she looks like him!
