Here's the story, of a lovely lady...

Last Monday at 12:12pm, Ariana entered the world.

Labor was induced with Pitocin, as all of my babies have been. For some reason my body doesn't ever really want to get going into full blown labor. I was 39 weeks, but she was measuring a week further than that.

I was happily surprised when we arrived at the hospital to discover that I was actually already dilated to 4cm. It made the rest of my progression go fairly fast. I got my epidural around 10am, started pushing around 11am.

Because she was a full pound bigger than any of my other babies, it took her a little longer to get to where she was ready to come out... but once she was, she pretty much took care of things on her own. I only had to push once to get her shoulders out!
I love her lovely chubbiness.
So far, she's been a pretty easy-peasy baby. She sleeps most of the time, eats on a 3hr rotation, and puts up with her siblings pestering- er-snuggling her.
