We Have a Baby!

She's here! Morgan Danielle was born Sunday, December 7 at 10:00 AM. She weighed 6 lbs 1 oz and was 20 inches long. Everyone was so surprised at how bright-eyed and alert she was (and still is). I'm enjoying every minute of her! My dear mom is here helping me, and she said she's very proud of Danny and me -- especially since she knew we had zero baby experience. That meant sooo much coming from her -- my little mommy confidence is through the roof now. =)

If you don't want the abbreviated version of the birth story (hey, some people wanna know!), you can skip on down to the pictures...

Remember I had the false alarm Tuesday. Then Friday night/early Saturday morning, I had another. The contractions were stronger -- just not close enough together. I was sent home again. Then later Saturday evening, the contractions had gotten so strong and painful that I called my doc and said, "I'm in so much pain, I could vomit" (and I wasn't exaggerating). So since it'd been 12 hours since my last visit to Labor and Delivery, he insisted that I come in. I went in and they admitted me -- sort of a wait-and-see thing.

As the night went on, the contractions got 10 times worse. Ahhhh! Soooo painful! Once I was dilated six, they gave me an epidural -- at that point, I knew I was having a baby! Wow. So after the epidural, I was GOOD, of course, and she was delivered a few hours later.

That's an abbreviated story; I could go on and on (like including the fact that the cord was wrapped tightly around her neck -- yikes!). But I know if I tell you these things, I'd have to tell you every little thing. You only have so many hours in your day! =) Bottom line is, everyone's healthy, we came home Tuesday, and it's been a joy.

And here are pictures of our little girl. Still can't believe we're parents... =)
