The last few days have been a whirlwind! Our baby Margot was born on Monday after 30+ hours of labor that began early St. Patrick’s Day. My anatomy didn’t make things easy for my 8 lb 6 oz baby to enter the world so I ended up having a cesarean section to ensure her safety. Don’t worry, there was never an emergency looming, it was just a typical difficult delivery.
Long story short, the labor was long, the delivery was short and our baby is healthy, happy and beautiful. I’m elated that we had no major complications, and that we had such a great team of medical practitioners to coach us through the entire journey.
The process was only made smoother by my mother-in-law and sister-in-law who flew in from Oklahoma to help around the house before and after the birth. Our dogs were well taken care of, and coming home to a clean house with a fridge full of food was beyond the best case scenario.
Well friends, and family, please forgive the brevity, I’m still healing and I’ve got a glorious baby that I’d rather be holding! Thanks for the enduring well-wishes and kind words during the pregnancy and beyond.
