Well, it’s been a minute since I posted….why? Because I had the AMAZING task of bringing the most amazing, beautiful little girl into the world!
Our baby girl was born at 1:47 am on Tuesday, February 10, 2015!
Bill and I could not be more in love than we are with this little girl!!!
Everything went great! I started having contractions just after 6 pm on Monday. We went to the Birth Place at around 11 pm, and by 1:47 am on Tuesday, we were holding our baby girl. I still can’t believe I did it, but I managed everything without any pain medication, epidural, or intervention of any kind. There were moments I wanted to give up and go to the hospital so I could get an epidural, but I stuck it out and I’m glad I did. She came so fast, the nurse didn’t even have time to get there. I delivered in the tub (water birth) with just Bill and the midwife. It was apparently all we needed. Even though she came on the 10th, the original due date was the 11th, so she seems to be right on time (a little early…….that’s her Marine daddy in her!)
Talia Ann weighed 5 pounds, 13 ounces, was 19″ inches long, and has A LOT of dark hair! Bill has been amazing in every way. I can’t tell you how blessed I am! He’s made sure I still get some decent sleep, and has possibly changed more diapers. He’s truly amazing!
