Lucy is a week old today (or yesterday, rather)! Sorry this has taken me so long to post...we haven't been home a week yet and my mom has been here with me until today.

I went into labor Sunday morning (4/25) and after 4 days of start/stop labor, Cervadil, Pitocin, and a crappy epidural, Lucy was delivered via c-section on Wednesday (4/28)...it was the best thing ever to hear her sweet and very loud cry after such a long few days. DH was amazing the entire time.

She weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces, was 21 inches long, and has a head full of dark hair. She looks exactly like DH.

She's beautiful :) And so sweet. She's nursing good except for some latch problems that are making my nipples crack and bleed.

I'm working on a long version of my birth story, but she's asleep now, so I'm going to take advantage of it!!

Congratulations mama! Glad to hear baby Lucy arrived safe and sound. I'd been thinking about you and wondering how you were doing. Can't wait to hear the full story and see some pics of your dark-haired beauty!

Oh and have someone get you some Lansinoh cream - it saved my life those first few weeks!

(((hugs)))
