11 p.m. Bed time, 41 weeks, 5 days pregnant and totally discouraged. Appointment made for visit to Labor and Delivery at 42 weeks. Appointment/assessment the day before. Baby looked perfect. I looked perfect. (Vital-wise). Blah. No hope of baby emerging as I fell asleep.
1:58 a.m. Wake up. MASSIVE contraction. Party started.
2:03 a.m. Call to Kim (midwife): Come quick!
2:15 a.m. Nate wakes up to do his usual night crawl into our bed. Karl tells him mommy's tummy is giving the baby hugs to get out the baby. HAHA.
2:25 a.m. Mary Kay picks up Nate.
2:50 a.m. Nora Kate rockets out of my body. Literally. All at once. Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
Yeeeea. So once my body decided, it was GO TIME. (Karl did catch her and yes, we were in a bathroom and yes, I was standing again.)
8 lbs. 11 oz.
Girl parts! (which we forgot to look at for a solid 10 minutes!)
Number of stitches: lets not talk about it.
Everyone is happy and healthy, will post some more pictures soon!
