My water broke at 1:40 a.m....
And sweet Mary was born at 3:37 a.m., less than 2 hours later.
7 pounds 6 ounces, 19.5 inches long.
The first time they checked me (you know, to make sure I was in labor :) ) I was at 7 cm, and the next time I was at 10. Whew. :)
This has been a whirlwind of a night. We're tired. :)
This was my very first labor with no pain medication at all. It was hard. And grueling. (Don't be fooled: short labors are pretty intense.) But oh so amazing and worth it.
And we finally have our Mary. (We've loved this name for years.)
Now it's time to get some sleep in our comfy, queen-sized hospital bed. God is good. We are blessed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
