She's Here!!!!

She is finally here!! Brynna Marlene Doty was born on 3/30/09 at 12:27 a.m. I was scheduled to be induced on Tuesday but my water broke at home on Sunday at about 4:00 p.m. 8 1/2 hours of labor is much better than what I was expecting! She weighed 6lbs. 4 oz. and was 21 inches long.
Here is Shawn and I after she was born. That hospital gown is the hottest thing I have ever worn!! Shawn looked so cute in his Daddy scrubs that my sisters got him. I have to say I was very impressed. He was so into all of it, none of it phased him!
This would be my 3 nosy sisters. We could see the Emergency Room entrance out my window so everytime an ambulance came in they had to see the drama!
Brynna all cleaned up and sleeping
She was so alert as soon as she came out. I just can't believe how tiny she is!!
Me and my sisters/ nurses. Yes, they all got matching scrubs with their names and which # sister they are embroidered on them. They actually came out really cute and all the nurses were very impressed! Things went great today- I know everyday won't be this easy so I am going to enjoy it while I can! More to come later :o)

It's Official!!

I went to my doctor's appointment today and they scheduled me to be induced on March 31st. I was really excited all the way to the car and then got in, started it, and then it really hit me. Next came the laughing hysterically and crying. It was so much easier when I knew I was going to be a mom at some distant, not specified time in the future. Now I have a date. I have been nothing but excited up to this point, now I am excited and scared out of my mind! But according to the doctor he wouldn't be surprised if I went sooner because of the way I am progressing. That was good to think about in the middle of my panic attack let me tell you!
So 2 weeks from today hopefully I will posting some pictures of my new, beautiful baby girl. As terrified as I am, I can't wait to meet her. And as Tricia pointed out, what did I think was going to happen? :o)
