It's a girl!

Mirabel Ray, born at 3:09am, 10/30/09
6lbs 15oz, 19.5 inches
Successful VBAC!

Things I hope I'll never forget:
The feeling of my water breaking
The feeling of controlled mega pushing (or as they said to me "rock star!")
The feeling of the rest of her body coming out after her head
The feeling of discovering it was a GIRL and not a BOY

Things I hope I will forget very soon:
The feeling of it taking 2 hours and countless tries for the epidural to go in
The feeling of morning sickness for 20 weeks
The feeling of out of control contractions

You rock star! You just fooled me with that tricky belly! I'm so happy all went smoothly. I will say that from my experience with Maia the anesthesiologist was by far my least favorite part.

Congratulations! =D

I knew it was going to be a girl! Maybe I'm just displaying hindsight bias but I did say that everyone in my family hasn't had a boy for like, 30 years. ~Wini
