Sophia Helena was born at 12:13 this morning weighing 6 lbs 14 oz and 18 3/4 inches! Olia did a great job and we barely got to the hospital in time!
She had been contracting all day. She arrived at our house a little after nine. She said her contractions were about 10 minutes apart. She told me to go get some rest before the fun started. I couldn't really sleep because of me nerves. At 11:30, my mom comes in and tells me we need to get to the hospital. I was like, "what?? all ready?". So, I quickly got dressed and Tom, Olia and myself are out the door.
We got to the hospital about 11:45. She got checked into triage, and I had to wait in the waiting room until she was brought into delivery. I texted Sean at 12:06. Not 10 seconds later, Tom came out and got me. I asked he what she was dialated to. He said a 10!! Woohooo!! I get in the delivery room, and it's all a buzz! She had one contraction when I was in there, and the nurse told her that the next one she could start pushing. So, during her next one, she started pushing and 3 pushes later, Sophia was here! I'm so happy we left for the hospital when we did!
Seeing a birth of a baby is such and amazing thing. And Olia did it all drug free, which was her request, not that she had time for an epidural anyway!=) I'm just so happy and blessed that she is a healthy baby. She has darker hair then Nina. It will be fun to see who she looks like in the next few weeks. I will post pictures later today. And thats if I'm not past out from exhaustion! I got into bed at almost 3 am and woke up at 7:50!! What the heck! But i'm excited to it's hard to sleep.
You did so great Olia! I'm so proud of you!
