Margaret Rose arrived November 22, a week late. Despite a very chaotic week involving bronchitis/pneumonia, a fall, moving houses, and an unanticipated hospital stay…she made her debut with very little fuss.
I ended up being induced again but labor went fairly quickly. It’s amazing how the experience seemed so different than the first time around. Maybe it was less stressful knowing roughly what to expect or just the anticipation of not knowing the gender. Whatever the cause, I was much more in tune with the process and while labor is no picnic…we had a fairly relaxed delivery (thank the epidural). Maggie likely would have arrived much earlier except my water hadn’t broken and the doctor was stuck in surgery. Once that last barrier was removed she made her debut kicking and screaming.
We couldn’t be more thrilled and big sister Lena was pretty excited too!
