She is here!

Lily Marie Wood
born may 21, 2012 at 8:28pm
9lbs 2oz, 20 in

I went in on May 20 for an induction, after having cervical ripeners in me for 12 hours, i was
started on Pitocin. I labored for another 12 hours and still only dilated to a 2 and was 80% effaced.
Lily was pretty comfortable in my warm womb, there were no signs of distress, but my midwife said it was time to consider other options since i was obviously not progressing like we wanted to be.
So in comes Dr. Ward to help my midwife Laura Zaugg with my C-section and Lily was born screaming at 8:28pm. I had a hard time recovering from all the epidural drugs, it made my face swell a bit, lost my ability to 'feel' swallowing, and was numb from the chest down! Weird feeling to have all that going plus hormones, but hey, i made it through it and Lily is perfect in every way!
Enjoy the pictures ;)

This is the first time I laid eyes on my daughter and was able to hold her
