Just wanted to let everyone know that our little girl, Julianne Helene, arrived on November 2nd at 7:28am. She weighed 8 pounds, measured 21 inches and is so very beautiful!
I will be sharing the birth story soon after I get used to things but here is a tidbit. I went in for my 41 week appointment, already 10 days past due date. I got an ultrasound, my contractions were monitored and I had a fetal monitor. After 45 minutes I was told I needed to go to the hospital because my amniotic fluid was low. It usually is supposed to be between 5 and 10 but mine was reading at 3.
17 hours later, after being plugged to pitocin, Julianne was born, without pain medications. Here are a few pictures.
