Lilly is here!!

Lilly arrived on November 26th at 3:58 in the afternoon. When I got to the hospital at 11:30 I was 3.5 cm dialated and after walking around for a while I got to a 4. The midwife was debating on sending me home or not and finally decided to admit me. After telling me to breathe through my horribly painful contractions for two hours without checking for progress they finally gave me a i.v. drug to "take the edge off" which only lasted about 30 minutes. The midwife decided she would check me again after I got the epidural, thinking I hadnt progressed that far at all. By the time I got the epidural and was checked.. I was already an 8 and about 10 minutes later I had to push her out without the epi actually taking effect. I was however numb when they stiched me up and numb for a good 4 hours after the actual birth. We are stuck in the hospital for Thanksgiving and the following day.. I guess we wont get to go out and shop the Friday sales!

Anyway. Lilly was 6 pounds and 6 oz. and 19 and a half inces long. Tiny little girl with lots of dark hair just like Mommy had.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!
