Thanks for the replies, ladies. She's such a good baby. She very rarely cries and has the sweetest little personality. Her big sister Alyvia has always been feisty, so it's definitely a change for us to have a calm laid-back baby.
NA: The birth was pretty intense. It was much more intense than my first labor. I was induced on the 22nd, but they had to stop giving me the Pitocin that afternoon because Victoria's heartbeat spiked too high. They let us rest for the remainder of that day and restarted it on the 23rd. I had an epidural, but I was progressing so slowly that by the time I was able to get it I was in excrutiating pain. The anesthesiologist gave me a pretty hefty amount of pain medicine, and as a result I could not move or feel my legs for the rest of that day. I gave birth 19 minutes after the epidural was given. But Victoria is an amazing baby and everything I went through was worth it for her.
I'm sorry to hear this time around was more painful. You know I asked my doctor if I could be induced if the baby wasn't born exactly on muy due date and it was like if I said something wrong. He said no way he was going to induce on me as a first timer because that would increase the chance for c-section. So I have got to wait here, but I really think this baby is comming anytime. In fact right now I'm having mild cramps that come and go..
In the end I hear like you say that it's all worth it when you see the baby and your baby is so beautiful. Congrats again!
Gonna try to do some pelvic floor excersice to see if I can speed things up here hehehe
