Lil’ Bit was born on 1/31/08 at 6:59pm. She was 7 lbs 14.4 oz and 19 inches long. If she had waited 5 more hours, she would have been born on her grandmother’s 50th b-day :). Oh well.

The birth went perfectly! I had contractions 5 min apart or less for approximately 18 hours and only spent 4 at the hospital before she was born. I pushed for about an hour before she was born. As we had hoped, she was born with no intervention and I had no drugs or IV until AFTER delivery — I had some minor bleeding issues and needed pitosin to stop it. I tore a little which was a bummer, but it was so intense that you could have offered me $1 million and I couldn’t have slowed it down any.

Anyway, there are pics up in the photo gallery (see the link on the right) and Bones has also posted a video of her on YouTube:
