January 25, 2009 at 1:02pm. My water broke at 2:49am, I was at the hospital by 3:49am, I started going into labor around 4:00am...I really don't know what time I got the epidural...I think it was close to 6 or 6:30, then slept through the rest of labor until it was time to push, I think I had an hour and a half to 2 hours of pushing, and then she came out. She had her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck when she came out and was rushed to the NICU after they'd cleaned her up and unwrapped the cord and cut it. I didn't have much time to look at her and I was so doped up on medications that they were giving me that I really didn't notice much.

She's a premee, born 4 weeks early. She's been in the hospital for the past week but her doctor says that she should be home within a week, maybe less if her feeding improves.

She's so beautiful ! Congratulations.

Even though she joined the family early, she still looks bigger than either of my (full term) granddaughters did (each weighed just a bit over 5 pounds due to complications from preeclampsia).
