The delivery was...dare I! We choose to induce so we could guarantee that the experience was 'hosted' by our OBGYN, and not some cranky on-call doc that we did not know. Long story short:

  • Contractions HURT.
  • Epidurals are niiiice.
  • Pushing is freakin HARD.
  • Looking at your lady bits in a mirror when a tiny human is coming out of them is just plain surreal.
  • Having your husband right by your side telling you he loves you and you are amazing as HE sees my lady bits in this state is even more surreal.
  • Hanging out in between pushes is much more entertaining when the doc and nurses are rocking out to the ipod playlist that your husband lovingly crafted.
  • Cannot begin to explain the emotions of seeing her for the first time - or the high pitched squealing/crying that I was making at that moment.
  • Not a stitch to be sewn, was up walking a few minutes afterwards and took two Motrin a few hours later...........i am woman HEAR ME ROAR!
