Juliet Clara is born

As I mentioned in the previous post I began having contractions Tuesday night. They continued through the day Wednesday picking up steam at 6:00 pm. At 8:00 pm I told E to call his mom, that we were headed to the hospital. By 9:30 we were admitted and I was told that the anethesiologist was in with a c-section. I waited. And labored. I begged my nurse to get him. At 10:40 I was told I was fully dialated, Baby Girl's pulse was dropping with each contraction and it was time to push.

I begged for drugs.

They told me to push.

Two pushes later (and the worst pain I have ever in my life experienced) Juliet Clara came screaming into this world.

Tiny and pink and perfect.

It got crazier (if possible) but I'm off to snuggle my newborn and get some rest. Happy birthday dear baby girl.
