First of all I'd like to say thanks to all of you fellow bloggers who left very nice messages. And thanks to all of you who visited us at the hospital. It's nice to hear from everyone and have so much support. We came home from the hospital on Tuesday and have been loving every minute. It's so nice to have her here with us and finally getting settled with some what of a routine.
So for those of you who are curious here's how my labor went. Last Saturday, right after I made the post about being induced on Tuesday, I went with Bobbie on a long walk. We got done about 7:00 pm and headed to dinner. As soon as we were done walking I noticed my contractions being a lot more consistent and stronger so we started to time them. Throughout all of dinner they were every 5 min lasting close to 1 min this was from 7:00 to 9:00. My doctor told me to come in when they're this close but of course I didn't want to get sent home so I just went home instead of to the hospital. Nate and I waited a few more hours just hanging out at home. Finally around 12:30 am they were close to 3 min apart so I decided to go in. We stopped by Maverick for an energy drink for Nate and some yummy frozen yogurt for me. Once we got to the hospital they checked me and said I was dilated to a good 5 cm and I was there to stay. A few more hours went by and before I knew it Tessa was born at 7:02! It was the most amazing experience of my life. It was so special I'll never forget it. Everything went so smoothly and perfect, I was very lucky. Tessa is doing just great. She's already gained 6 ounces and is just the sweetest little thing ever. We love her so much and enjoying every minute with her. Here's a bunch of pictures of her at the hospital for you to enjoy.
