Baby Annabelle was born yesterday...

8 lbs 3 oz, 19 inches long @ 37 weeks.

I have to say it was my easiest delivery. No mag since my pressures were normal on epidural. They actually were a little too low compared to what I've been running all pregnancy at one point making me lightheaded for a little bit. Didn't need cervadil since i was already somewhat dilated and effaced. After 5 hours on pitocin she was born and started squalling right away.

Some of her sugars were a little low yesterday but she was able to room in with me last night and we should be able to go home tomorrow. Her color is great esp. compared to my other 37 weeker that was sleepy & jaundiced. I'll post a pic when I get a chance later.

My pressures are still great today, hoping this will be my easiest recovery even if it was my most complicated pregnancy!
