I typed this all up and then lost it, so I have to be quick. I'll post more later.

We welcomed Cadence Laurelei into the world at 12:17 pm yesterday. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 21 inches long with a 14 inch head.

We're both doing fine and we should be coming home tomorrow afternoon.

That looks like a tiny, private smile in the first picture. As though she's saying, "Yup, I'm finally here." :)

Congratulations!

Thanks, everyone.

I was a little worried about an induction. It seemed a lot of people I knew that had inductions ended up with a c-section. Everything went smoothly for the most part.

They started me with the pitocin a little after 6:00 am and I started making good progress with little pain, which surprised me. Around 8, the doc came in and broke my water. It started getting painful, so I got my epidural. That was neat because it was a different drug than the one I had last time. Instead of being completely numb, not able to feel a thing, I felt no pain and my torso was numb, but I could move my legs and feel pressure to know what was going on. The nurse said that drug focused more on sensory rather motor.

Things progressed quickly from there, but this monkey pants decided to be hard to trace, so she had to get an internal monitor. Around the time I was getting ready to push, Cadence had some serious decels in heart rate. We were so close that my doctor worked really hard to help me get her out quickly so I didn't have to get a c-section.

This experience was a really good one. My doc was wonderful. She knew c-section was on my worst fear list and we worked to make that not happen. She was also in and out my whole labor, checking on things and making sure I was doing okay.

Now, it's almost time to go home and start this newest adventure. Piper's so excited to be a big sister. I think we're going to have a lot of fun.
