Introducing Elizabeth Catherine Boggie

Welcome to the world my sweet beautiful angel! We went to the hospital on February 9th and I was induced with a small little pill at 8am. After a couple hours, I really started to feel the contractions and then the Doctor broke my water at noon. Then the contractions really started! I was allowed to walk the halls for a while and that helped a bit. Around 4pm I was allowed to go into the birthing suite and the nurse filled up the jaccuzi for me. Oh it was heaven! I didn't want to get out and stayed in for over an hour. Then the epidural man came in to give me some pain medicine to help with the bad contractions I was feeling. After hours of breathing and trying to sleep, they cranked up some Pitocin to help the contractions. Daddy left to take a nap at Grammies and she and Aunt Melly came to stay with me while he was gone. At 5am, I was in alot of pain and asked Daddy to come back. I was only at 6 cm after 21 hours so they really pushed in the Pitocin and cranked up the epidural some more. At 6:30 I started to feel some pressure. I called for the nurse and she came to check me. 10 cm and ready to go! The nurses started getting the room ready and called for the Doctor. He was at home so I started pushing without him! At 6:50am, he strolled into the room and the nurse yelled at him to get a gown on or his clothes were going to be very messy. He got there just in time to help as I gave on final push. At 6:52 am, after only 4 pushes, you were born! He put you on my chest and Daddy cut the cord. The nurse moved you to the warmer and cleaned and weighed you while your Daddy stood closely by! After a couple minutes, Daddy got to hold you and gently put you into my arms. We tried breastfeeding right away and you latched on and started to suck like a pro! Your perfect little face, fingers and are so beautiful!

I got to take you home today. Its so nice to be out of the hospital and now we can really spend some time getting to know each other. My milk came down yesterday and now your starting to really nurse well.

I love you so much sweet angel! I can't wait to spend everyday with you!

Newborn Elizabeth

OK, well I'm about 80% sure we are going to have you tomorrow! Its a long time coming and I'm so totally ready to see you Elizabeth! I'm very nervous but I know I can do this!

What do I want to happen?I'm hoping everything will go well and you will be born around 7 or 8 pm. I know you will be perfect and healthy!

I'm guessing you will be about 8 pounds 9 oz and maybe 21 inches long.

The last 9 months have been hard but amazing. First flutters turning into kicks. Seeing the first sonogram then finding out your a girl! Watching my tummy move as you squirm around inside me. I know you will be worth all the morning sickness and uncomfort, you already are and I haven't even seen you yet! I'm just ready to hold you in my arms, touch you and smell you.

Ohh I hope I can sleep tonight...I know I'm going to be so nervous and not sleep but oh well...HEY WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!

Its almost time! Posted by Hello
