I am so thrilled to announce that my baby girl came on her own after I spent hours trying to decide if I should go ahead and get induced as the OBs wanted me to, at or before 40 weeks..... long story but I was so perplexed as to what to do and finally decided just to go ahead and schedule the induction since I was always scared of losing this one (ever since the bloody fluid incident at the amnio). THen she came at 39w3d on her own, little rascal! She only took 3 hours of labor and it was great, no epidural and recovery is going great, I feel awesome (a little tired but not bad). She seems perfectly healthy. I could not be any happier and we are all so in love with her. I will post pics some time later but had to get on and tell you all, DH posted some pics on his FB account so I know some saw those but I will post some better ones soon.
Thanks for all the congrats and well wishes already, on FB.
I am so so so overjoyed to have my 5th baby. I feel complete. I never thought I would but I do. I now have this incredible urge to go out and buy things with my kids names on them, and get 5 of everything that match, like xmas stockings, towels etc. Before I never wanted to get stuff like that since what if they discontinued it before I had my last baby, ya know? So here I am, an official TOK mom. I am so so so thrilled. I love my baby and my four other kiddos!
Oh BTW we have no idea what to call her: Florence Louise (love it but a little long), Florrie, Florrie Lou, Weezy, or just Florence? what do you all like? We could use more than one but what should we call her most of the time? I can never figure this out.
