I know that I had to stay in the hospital for three days, so if she had the baby maybe she doesn’t have internet access?  I was also EXHAUSTED my first couple days, so I’m sending some Hive Love her way hoping that everything is going ok!

I know personally I am not really updated on technology for blogging/posting, etc, so hopefully that may be it – just not having internet access and/or phone internet access and just sheer exhaustion. Sending good vibes her way!

I’m here!  Sorry, hive, it’s been a while.  Laughing  No need to be worried, though; I’ve just been enjoying life as a new mom!

Adelaide (that’s right, team green turned team pink!) arrived on June 8th at 8:31 pm.   She weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces and was 19″ long.  And we were afraid she was going to be a tiny baby, lol.

I kinda disappeared about 3 weeks ago without saying much because I was really frustrated.  At 37 weeks, I started experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions for the first time, and I thought I was going into labor no less than 5 times.  It was so frustrating to start contractions, see them getting closer together, and then suddenly fizzle out.  I just wanted Addie out, and I felt like I was never going to have her!  I resigned myself to carrying this baby for another 30 years.  🙂  That, combined with working 50 hours a week and trying to get everything ready for the baby’s big arrival, I just didn’t want to talk to anyone.  Sorry hive; I kinda went incognito at that time.  

Then, on June 8th (at 39 weeks), I started up contractions at about 7:00 am.  I could feel them getting stronger, but I was trying not to get my hopes up because I thought it was false labor again.  Surprise, surprise, I was driving back to work after picking up lunch and my water broke!  I felt three little gushes, and all of sudden my contractions got a little stronger.  I hurried back to work and called my husband to come pick me up.  By the time we got to the hospital, it was about 12:30 pm and I was having contractions every 5 minutes.  They were pretty manageable at that time, and when the nurse checked, I was 3 centimeters dilated.  Pretty quickly, though, my contractions started coming every 2 minutes, and they got REALLY strong.  After only an hour of being at the hospital, I dilated another centimeter and a half and my water broke again!  Apparently, the bag of waters can reseal itself; mine actually broke three times during labor, which I didn’t even know could happen.  

My contractions were coming really fast and were super intense.  I was throwing up a lot, and I felt so weak, I could barely get through one contraction at a time, so I decided to get an epidural.  At the time I felt like a wuss that I had only made it to 4.5 centimeters before needing pain meds, especially after all of my preparation for a med free birth.  Now, though, I feel a lot better about my decision.  After I got the epidural, I slept until I was about 9 centimeters dilated.  I really needed the epidural to get through, I think, because the contractions were so hard and fast and exhausting.  All in all, I woke up at about 7:00 pm, 9 centimeters dilated, and I felt much more full of energy to push.  I was complete at 8:00 pm, and only pushed for half an hour until Addie came out.  It was so incredible, and my husband and I were both crying; we were so overwhelmed by what had just happened.

The last (almost) two weeks have been absolutely amazing!  Addie is so sweet and wonderful; I can’t imagine loving anyone more than I love her.  We’ve had a couple rough moments, but overall, she is so easy to take care of.  The hardest part for me is that I never want to do anything but hold her and cuddle her all day long.  Smile  I think, if the worst that happens during my day is that I have to put her down for a couple minutes, I’m pretty darn lucky.  

Below are a couple pictures of Adelaide; I’d be happy to talk more about being a new mom and about my labor, if anyone has any questions.  Addie’s birth was seriously one of the best days of my life, and (even though I don’t want to bore everyone with my gushing), I could talk about her for hours.  Thanks all for your patience and concern!  You guys are the best!
