Georgia Elizabeth

Born 10/15/09
Weighing 6 lbs 0 oz and 19 inches long

Labor was 36 hours with one fantastic husband who was as wonderful, attentive, supportive and gentle as any women could ever hope for and one mother of mine who used to be an OB nurse and was the most impressive contraction coach on the floor, two great anesthesiologists who did everything they could to help with the pain when both epidurals failed. And after 25.5 hours with no epidural I was not in the mood for the pain to continue and increase. The second anesthesiologist even came out of his surgery, a c-section for twins, to give me a bolster shot to help me through the final stages of labor and the pushing! Amazing. I am for pain meds and proud after all of this. Our nurse was incredible and even came over to be our nurse again after Georgia was born.

I have found it so amazing how quickly not one of the hours of pain matters when you are finally holding your baby in your own arms. This is the most amazing, wonderful, and incredible thing I have ever done. I am in awe that God has blessed me with this little tiny GIRL!
The moment she was born and the whole room shouted “Its a Girl!” was the most fun and wonderful moment ever. Daren and I both expected the baby to be a boy and we both looked at each other and started to immediately laugh and cry. I couldn’t stop saying ” We actually got a girl!” Our sweet Georgia girl is the first girl in Daren’s family is 55 years. But more on that at another time. My daughter needs me now…
Oh how I love her.
