Harper was born yesterday, October 30th, at 12:51 PM, weighing 7 lbs 6 oz and measuring 19 inches long. She just couldn't wait until Halloween. :) She's got a head full of brown hair from somewhere and has dark blue eyes (we think.)
I woke up at 7 AM having contractions three minutes apart. We took Frankie to a friend's house (thanks, Kembe) and went to the hospital, where things progressed quickly - almost a little too quickly. I was in a lot of pain and got an epidural around 11 AM. Afterward, I relaxed and went from a 5 to a 9 in about an hour. After 15 minutes or so of pushing, she was out! It was a fast, fairly easy labor with no complications. She's a great eater and we already love her to bits! I'll update on the middle name once it's final and post more pictures later; the hospital wifi sucks. We expect to go home early tomorrow afternoon; I tested GBS positive, so they want to keep us for 48 hours 'just in case' as I was unable to get the antibiotics four hours before she was born, even though everything is going as well as can be! Juston says that I seem to be feeling better than I have in months and it's definitely true; I'm so glad to not be pregnant anymore. We're so happy to welcome Harper to the family!
