And Now I Present to You.....
Lil Miss Bia Eliana
Born 08/13 at 13:08 (1:08pm). 7 lbs, 5 oz- 19 inches long. She is nothing short of wonderful.
I went into the hospital at around 10:00 with bad back aches, a few random contractions here and there (but nothing that I thought was labor inducing), and some "leaking" (sorry if that grosses you out). I had called the doctor's office before going in to see if any of those things should concern me since I was already dilated to a "4" the past 2.5 weeks. They told me to just go to the hospital and get checked.
Berns was singing and dancing the entire way to the hospital and I tried to keep him grounded telling him that most likely they would send us home.
Well, to my pleasant surprise, when they checked me around 10:30 I was dilated to a 5. They decided to keep me and get this baby out.
Everything else went so quick it's kinda a blur...a painful blur, but a blur.
Epidural man came, then they broke my water, then checked me again about 12:15 and I was at an 8. Checked me again about 5 minutes later and I was a 10. I had to push for about 40 minutes and she was out. Labor lasted about 3 hours! The only problem was my epidural didn't work on the right side of my body so I felt quite a bit more pain than I really cared to.
Little Bia entered our world sucking her hands and with a 1 dimpled smile. She already has us all wrapped around her little finger.
Zoie refuses to do anything except hold the baby, Riley oohs and aahhhs about how tiny everything on her is. Berns is twitterpaited and in 7th heaven with another little girl. I'm just in utter amazement because I'm so blessed. I look at my 3 girls and can't help but get teary eyed. This is what life is about and nothing else seems to matter.
Welcome home Bia--we love you
