|10:17 am - It's a girl.|
Baby is here, we're both fine.
Rowan Mae was born at 1:09 p.m. Thursday, August 6th. We labored at home until about 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning, when we decided to transfer to the hospital for a couple of reasons, the main one being that baby was not descending. Arrived at the hospital, got an epidural and then a nap, and then baby had descended and was ready to be born. Stubborn little bugger.
She weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. and is 19.5 inches long. She has long, skinny feet and hands, long fingernails, and a full head of dark hair. She's absolutely beautiful and Bear is in charge of getting pictures online ASAP. She's nursing well, though she prefers the left side.
We got home from the hospital this morning, about five hours before the standard 48-hour discharge. Would have been sooner, but we were waiting on 24-hour cultures on baby's blood, and the blood didn't arrive at the lab till 15 hours after Rowan was born. :p
Now, since baby is napping in a sling on her daddy, I'm going to take a nap.
