Just a little update: Reesa Merrilee has arrived! We went to the hospital Monday morning at 7:30 to be induced. I was a day over and wasn't dilating still, so it was time to get her moving. They put me on Pitocin when we got there and waited to see how things started working. I started having contractions but nothing huge. The doctor came in to check a couple times and I was only a 2 - 2 1/2, that means it was time to break my water. That was lovely. After that my contractions got much stronger and more frequent, but I still was only dilated to a 3 is. Things were going slow, but I wanted to see how much I could do. The nurse and doctor suggested an epidural to help me relax and get further along, so at about 8/8:30 I got and epidural. It took a few more hours but I finally got to a 9. Then the babies heart rate started to get really fast. The doctor came in and checked me. I was still a 9 and things were getting a little tense. We had two options: we could insert a catheter that would put some liquid in with the baby and help her to calm down; if that didn't work we would have to have a c-section. That was worrisome, but luckily the catheter worked. About an hour later, we were pushing and in about 10 minutes, Reesa Merrilee was here. We were so glad that everything went well and that we have a very healthy baby. She was born at 4:04 a.m., weighed 8 lbs 1 oz, was 20 1/2 inches long and very cute. She looks a lot like Tad or at least a Dickerson. I love having her and already cannot imagine life any different. Afton has been such a good big sister and loves to hold her hand. For the most part, she is getting tons of attention from my family and so that has her distracted a bit.
So this is what's been going on and I might not be blogging for a while, but enjoy the pix!
