View Full Version : Beatrix is here!

Our daughter Beatrix Rose is here! My water broke unexpectedly last night at about 8:30pm...I had not been having any ctx but they started in hard almost immediately. I went to L&D and begged for an epidural asap...life was much happier when it went in. Even with the epi things progressed pretty rapidly and she arrived at 2:37am, just at 34 weeks!
She is 5lbs 4oz, 19 inches, a full head of hair, and so far has been breathing on her own! She will be in the NICU at least a week to 35 weeks per hospital policy, but depending on how she is doing might be able to come home after that! We will see how things unfold.
I have pumped a few times but the dr's said if she is still fine I can try nursing her this afternoon, which I am excited about, we'll see how it goes!
Thank you to everyone on the boards who helped me get through these last ten weeks of bedrest, it was not easy but I am so grateful we made it this far!
