So, if you read my last post you would know that my due date had come and gone (April 10) so we were wondering when our second little girl would be making her appearance.
Well, she FINALLY came and graced us with her arrival at 8:24 AM on Thursday, April 18, 2019 weighing 6lbs and 5oz of perfection! Here is how the days leading up to her arrival transpired.
Post Due Date OB Visit - April 12, 2019
This appointment was definitely going to be my last. Apparently where I live they don’t let you go more than a week past your due date anymore and I was completely ok with that.
When I met with the OB, he “checked” me and I wasn’t really dilated at all AKA no signs of baby coming anytime soon. I was told that if the baby does not come on her own by the 17th that I would be induced. So I waited for her to come, thinking maybe she would like to share the same birthday (April 16), but she didn’t. The induction day was looking like my best bet and slowly but surely came.
Induction Day - April 17, 2019 at 2pm
Went to the hospital and got checked prostaglandin gel.
Baby A No. 2's Birthday - April 18, 2019
Today was the day! She was finally here and I have to say its was surreal. I looked right at her and thought - WOW! I am a mom of two beautiful little girls... this is wild, I am blessed and so very very excited to see what life has in store for our family of now four.
