It's a girl!

Forgive the short post. It's hard to type, you see, because my baby girl is on my chest right now!

Charlotte Corrina was born at 1:03pm on 11/12/11. She weighed 5lb 2oz and is 18.5" long. She did require a little bagging in the O.R. but once they got her going, she took right over and did great. They took her to the regular nursery while I was in recovery and brought her to me to room in about 3 hours later. Completely amazing. She has a head full of hair, the edges of which are blonde.

She has latched on, but is having a hard time staying awake to nurse for any length of time. But right now her blood sugars are good and she wet appropriately, so we're just giving her some time to get it.

We are currently in the world's smallest hospital room in Labor and Delivery as I have to stay on mag for 24 hours. I'm having some insane contractions and had to have an extra dose of pain meds, but other than that, I'm doing great, too.

Robbie met her and was.. well.. not impressed. He hadn't had a nap and had been at the hospital (with our parents) all day, so I'm sure that didn't help. He mostly just did not want to get anywhere near her. That's okay, the whole situation is pretty weird, after all.

Without further ado, meet Charlotte:

Thanks guys.
If I'd have thought, I'd have set up my blog to be able to post from my phone so I could update earlier. Sorry to keep everyone waiting.

Adrianne- the mag is kicking my rear a bit. I feel like a roasted Turkey, but I'm hanging in there.
