One week old...

I can't believe it has only been a week since Sara came. She is such a good baby! She only cries if she is hungry or tired and even then it is still a cute cry. I am loving that now because I know it isn't going to last forever.

Well, just a quick recap on the labor...I was enduced last Monday which was 6 days early. I have an amazing Dr. and he said I could pick my due date, and of course 9 months pregnant I wanted to go asap :) We went into the hospital about 9 am, but they didn't even get me hooked up to IV or the Pit until around 10:30. Believe it or not, I was able to get about an hour worth of rest before the contractions were too hard. My Dr. came in about 1:30 and broke my water since I had just decided to get the epideral. Right after they gave me my epideral my mom and sister were in visiting me and I started to feel really weak. I called the nurse in and my blood pressure had dropped to something like 60/32. They said that is common after an epideral, but it was really weird. They said I looked like a ghost for a little while. That actually happened twice, but then we were good to go. I started to feel pressure about 6:30 and they said I was at an 8. My two sisters were able to be in there with Alan and I for the delivery. It was so amazing to have them there, but I did miss my mom. She was so great and had all the kids at home (not just mine but my two sisters too.) Mom you are incredible! It really has been an amazing recovery too. I am so blessed to be able to have it so easy!
