    Well, she is finally here. She was due April 1st, but that day came and went without so much as a hint of any action. 10 days later the doc ordered my wife into the hospital for inducing.

    First they tried "cervidil" which basically did nothing. Then they started "pitocin", shortly thereafter contractions were merely 3 minutes apart. At 6cm's contractions became so strong (side effect of pitocin) the baby's heart rate would drop from 120+ down to 60-70. Doctor watched for a few minutes then ordered a C-Section. She was born 4/10/03 12:36pm

    Weight : 7lbs 10oz
    Length : 21 inches

    You're in for a world of trouble when she reaches the teenage years if she's being this difficult as a fetus. [​IMG]

    Congrats! [​IMG]

    Congratulations! I'm sure that the waiting was tough. Is she your first? My son was born on the 4th and my wife and I are still trying to get used to all the feedings and diaper changes. We're exhausted!!! [​IMG]
