Well the little lady made her arrival in an impressive time period, just like her big sister! I started feeling some major pain shortly after my previous post and entered the tub. Shortly after that, I felt  A LOT of pressure, was checked and was dialated to a five and fully effaced. I began thinking there was no way I was going to make it another two hours (that is what it took for Nora to get from a 5 to a 10) and then I realized that my nurses were setting up my room for a delivery. It was then that I realized I probably had little time left and that I could once again do this drug free. Before I knew it I was asking to be checked again because I felt like I needed to push. I got my nurse, she came in and checked me and told me me "oh yeah, you are a ten, fully effaced and your baby is right there". I thought, "I know lady" and began to think I would not be able to hold it muhc longer. Thankfully my doctor was QUICK gettting here and I started pushing right away. Pushing lasted all of 7 minutes and at 12:47pm our new little lady entered the world. Little lady remains nameless, however, she weighed in at 9 lbs. 1 oz and was 19 and 3/4 inches long. These stats put her at nearly a WHOPPING TWO POUNDS heavier than her "big" sister was at birth. Needless to say, I was SHOCKED when they told me her weight. Although I am quite proud of the fact that I was able to endure an induced labor drug free and birth a NINE pound baby, I am pretty certain that if there is a next time, I will NOT be doing it again!! Afterall the next little bitty might just weigh 11 pounds!!
