She's Here!

I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to post her entire birth story, but Lucy arrived on Friday, October 10 after a successful induction!!!
Here are the key details:
  • Arrived at hospital at 6:45am. Got hooked up for an NST and had a cervical check: 5cm, 80%, between -1 and 0. No real change in cervix from Monday.
  • NST picked up contractions, but they weren't really strong or regular.
  • Started pitocin at 7:48am
  • Contractions were getting regular and stronger, coming every 2.5-3 minutes.
  • Cervix check at 12:15-ish: 8cm, 90%. Doc broke water and Lucy immediately dropped more.
  • Started pushing at 12:45pm.
  • Lucy was born at 1:28pm. 8lbs 4.75oz. 19.5" long.

    1. Thank you! I'm trying, but there are times that are frustrating, like when she's crying for no apparent reason.
