Carly was 4 days overdue, and earlier this day we had to get an ultrasound to make sure everything was still looking okay...........Well, when they told us that this "little" girl was looking at least 9 lbs. we were no longer aprehensive about getting induced!! We called our doctor right away, and he sent us to the hospital that night!...................After a long night of discomfort and contractions caused by a device they had to place in me to prepare for the induction, the induction finally began Friday morning @ 7:00 a.m.. What a long day that would be!.............By 10:00 pm and almost 24 hrs. of labor, I was finally ready to start pushing-and boy was I READY!!! Unfortunately our baby girl was not, and decided to take her SWEET time just as she had for the past day and a half, and had her Mommy push for a whoppin' 2 1/2 hours. With the patience and "handy work" of our wonderful OB, we were able to dodge a C-section, and miraculously "pop" that girl out @ 12:45 a.m., 12/30/06, early Saturday morning!! No one could believe how big she was at a huge 8lbs. 9 oz. except for her Mommy of course, who'd sworn up and down for the past month that she was with out a doubt carrying at least an 8 pounder!!
