My little rainbow baby, Catherine, arrived yesterday! Due to my GD, I was gently induced with pitocin at 39 weeks. The labor was short, but really quite low-key for the most part. I did go from 5cm to fully dilated in literally 10 minutes, so the end was a bit intense! It only took a few contractions after that to push her out. I did it with no pain meds, which I had really wanted but was afraid would not happen with the pit. Yay!

Little Catherine is perfect: 7lb 7oz, 20.5in. She's a champion nurser already, too I'm feeling great and will be home tomorrow.

I know we call our babies "squishy" often but it just seems to fit her, she is adorable and makes me excited to meet my little girl!
