The Real Deal

Yes, I really was in labor last night.

Violet Abigail H. was born this morning at 8:12. She is 21 inches long, 6 lbs 15 oz (!!!), and has a ton of dark hair. I will put up pictures later, when I get around to taking some (I know, I’m horrible). You’ll just have to take my word—she’s a cutie.

I’m not going to go into the birth story at this point (I’ve still got an IV in my hand and a sleep-deprived, addled brain). I will say that, for the first time, my body was cooperative and I didn’t need Pitocin. Also, every maternity ward triage should have a mandatory sound-proof booth to put the screamers in. Especially for busy nights where women who really are in labor are forced to lay in there for three hours before being taken to a real room. Just sayin’.

More to come…
