Welcome Baby







I bet you know by the title that we have our precious daughter with us now... It went a little like this... Have Pitocin wait, have nothing happen, have more pit, wait, nothing happen, get an epidural from Dr. J who is totally funny... Get more Pit wait... Nothing happen. Never efface, never dilate and now the decision. We have three choices... Not easy choices. #1 go home(not really an option with an epidural) #2-turn off the pit and wait until morning(it was around four forty five pm) Maybe the new start would kick my body into gear. Also, there was still a risk of delivering a very large baby and having a very traumatic vag birth. Thus making the risk of recovery high. Then there was the risk of injuring the baby as she made her grand entrance. With positives... I would be released from the hospital as soon as twenty four hours after delivery and I would be able to manage my family. Also I hadn't planned on the big-C so I was really scared of it. Just thinking it would be so hard to recover from and manage my pain... You know selfish stuff. #3 was of course the C-section. Something that could be done soon, be safer for the baby and, and would be a longer recovery/hospital stay.... After much talk... We finally decided that we would go ahead with the C. Everything went really fast after that. The Dr. came in, then the anesthesiologist, then they dressed daddy in his special clothes and we went down.




About fifteen minutes later we had our baby girl. (I was also relieved that she was still a girl)


Whew!!!!! that was fast.



Welcome to this family little miss,


Eden Nichole - 8lbs 8oz- on 10-05-10


Little Eden is our darling little munchie.









All three of my babies... Yummy. She certainly looks like one of our family... We are having some fancy pictures taken a little later today. The best part is that I feel really darn good. Heavenly Father has truly blessed us... Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes...

Such a cute little chunk! And she definitely is a member of your family, no baby's-daddy question there :) (And you know I am 100% joking on that!) She is beautiful and so glad to hear you all are doing so well! C-sections do kind of suck, but I promise every day gets better!

Melissa said...

Yippie!! Hope you are up and moving. Have they given you much to eat? Keep on top of your drugs for the first week and you should be great!! Of course having a darling baby makes it all worth while! Welcome to the world Eden!

Brynnie Brynn: I am so excited. Ellie told me all about your new little one. She was told by Ry so Im so glad to get the news somehow. So Ry told Ellie who told me that Eden has hair and eyes the color of my Ellie....is this true? How can this be when the others are so blonde? Please let me know if you need ANYTHING!! You are the best mom around. My guess is that Heavenly Father would send you 50 more if he could. Congrats!
