Congratulations Mary!!! Lane is absolutely gorgeous, thanks for sharing his picture! I can relate to being utterly shocked at the gender--I was *postive* I was having a boy and I was speechless when I delivered a girl! I really looked hard for a second to make sure there was no penis! Glad to hear bf-ing is going well for you too! Enjoy your sweet little baby!:)

Lane Michael was born Sunday, April 6 at 10:31 pm. He weighs 6 pounds, 15 ounces and is 19 inches long.
To say we are surprised he was born Sunday is an understatement! I had my weekly appt last Friday and dr said I was not dilated at all. We went ahead and scheduled an induction for 4/15 in case nothing happened on my own this week or weekend. Sunday morning, I woke up around 7:15 and went to the bathroom. Something didn't seem quite right and I began wondering if my water broke. I woke up dh; we called the hospital and they told us to come in and they would determine if it was amniotic fluid or urine.
We got to the hospital around 9:30 and needless to say, it was not urine!! I was having no contractions on my own, so they had me walk the halls for 30 to 45 minutes a couple times. Still nothing! I started receiving pitocin at 1:30 and contractions started shortly thereafter. I will believe whoever has said that contractions with pitocin can be worse than without! I received an epidural at 7:30, relaxed on my side for a couple hours and was fully dilated by 9:45. I only pushed for 45 minutes and Lane arrived at 10:31. We did not know the gender ahead of time, but dh and I were both *certain* it was a girl. I remember looking down at 'the baby laying on my tummy' and thinking, "Oh, that's a penis!!!". :o
All of us doing well. Breastfeeding is getting off to a good start, which is a relief. I hope that continues!
Dh and I are completely thrilled with little Lane and I just had to share with all of you!!! I hope the picture attachment worked!!
