Well, my EDD was first set at April 4th and then adjusted to April 3rd, my scheduled c-section was set for March 24, 2010.
It was SO MUCH better than my emergency c-section with Son. The worst part was that they blew a vein trying to get my IV in (took 3 attempts) and how badly I was bruised from the spinal (which I had them keep trying until they got it in - despite how much it hurt because I did not want to be put under).
The best thing in the world was when the OBGYN told me that I had a Baby Girl ("and she's peeing")!
Even though it seemed unlikely that I would ever have another child after Son... and especially so after our surprise pregnancy and miscarriage right before we had Baby Girl... I could not be more thankful.
As a child, I wanted to be a Mom more than anything.
In high school, I had decided that I wanted to have a girl, then a boy and then one more baby (hopefully a girl, though a boy would be OK). I was into older, classic names then... and thought I would have an Emily, an Edward and an Anne.
Thanks to Hubs having Step-Daughter, I do have my girl, my boy and my girl.
But this post is about Baby Girl so here come the pics!
