Josslynn Devine....Not so much 10 lbs!

Okay, so it says 8lbs 12 ozs...not 10 lbs..still a BIG baby but my body is just made to shoot out the big ones! (poor Jimmy:) I am just glad that I have the friends and fam (Bai) that I have, that agree with the whole "jumping into a c-section" is not always the best option. I had to call Sandee and let her know how thankful I am to her that she backed me up with the whole 2nd opinion. I wanted to go with my gut and how I felt the baby wasnt that big but if anything were to have gone wrong it would have been on me. Luckily the specialist said I should have no problem and spoke with my Dr and we scheduled an induction the following morning. Inductions suck! I would have much rather labored at home and went in after a few hours of being able to walk around. We got to the hospital at 10 am and was confined to the bed through the entire day waiting for the antibiotics to slowly drip into me. After water was broke, it went pretty fast! I got my epidural at 7 cm and 1/2 hour later she was here! That was an almost perfect epidural and I felt EVERYTHING! I dont think I ever screamed during child birth, but Im sure my neighbors were wondering if I was really delivering a 10 pounder! It was great! Dr Lepetich was awesome and had total confidence that I would deliver vaginally with no problem..why did I switch doctors again??? Life is sooo much easier without surgery. I am recovering so far, so good, and I can still put baby down and play with my other two, which I was so worried about if I got a c-section. I know my family is blessed and now we are complete!! yeaah, its over...what felt like 2 years of pregnancy is finally done.

It looks like I gave birth to a 2 year old... she does look pretty darn big!!

She looks darling...and she doesn't look like a two year old! I agree that inductions suck...it is so boring laying there not doing anything. Anyway, glad you are home and adjusting....she's beautiful as are your other two!

She looks so WHITE! And Jayla's hair looks AMAZING in that last picture...Good job with the big baby, let's see if the weight of mine will top yours or if we have 2retarded Drs.
