She's here

BabyA made her arrival on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 1:34 after an interesting induction. No progress for almost 5 hours, epidural that sort of worked, was perfect after anesthesiologist #2, and then went from 3 cm to complete in a little over an hour.

On the size front, the timing was probably a good thing. At 39w3d, she was 8 lbs, 12 oz and 21 inches on the nose.

Breastfeeding is going OK. We were able to start earlier than with Son, so no issues on the sugars front (yea!) but we're a little high on the bilirubin levels so we'll have to see how that goes. Barring any issues arising on that front, we should be headed home tomorrow. Son thought that she was OK-he's having fun at SIL's, so he really isn't that concerned. Yet. Friday afternoon may be interesting.

Gotta go and try to get at least a little sleep. I'm going to have to wake her up in an hour to try to feed her to head off the jaundice issues. I didn't sleep very well last night, so I need to try to cover myself. OK...maybe I won't get my hour....
