So, dear friends! Thanks so much for standing by! And THANKS FOR PRAYING!!!! Turns out those contractions were the real deal!
Can't upload pictures yet, but this is what I can tell you.
Contractions started while I was grilling chicken around 5:30 p.m.
They continued as I wrote emails and posted on the blog.
Around 10:00, it seemed necessary to get to the hospital.
Got to the hospital around 10:30.
Our baby was born 1:25 a.m. on October 19. I'm still in shock that it's real.
We have a baby girl.
9 lbs 12.6 oz
21 3/4 inches (or so, Brent thinks...I don't even know!)
Lots of hair.
I had the best labor and delivery team, including our doula Karen and my stellar husband, Brent.
Oh, and the baby came too fast for an epidural. More later.
