Sooo, our plans for a natural childbirth got derailed after 3 days of labor (yes, you read that correctly!) Babygirl was delivered via c-section at 10:45pm on Saturday 8/23. Weighing in at 9 lbs 7 oz, 22 inches long w a SERIOUS head of hair! She was also sunny-side up, which contributed to the prolonged labor and helped ease my mind that the c-section was indeed the right choice. I got a LOT of time in labor to use the Hypnobirthing techniques…and it was REALLY helpful in relaxingand working through the really painful parts. At one point I had my headphones on, breathing through some particularly annoying contractions, and my husband asked the nurses to leave because they were talking too much! Bless his heart. Anyway- I will work on the whole story but for now, we are home adjusting to a very big, hairy, beautiful baby girl who loves to eat!! She was well worth every minute (and every DAY) of it!

AN, Silverton
