My daughter, Victoria, called me from the hospital at 2:54 p.m. our time saying she was walking the hall to 'get things moving faster', she was having contractions every two to three minutes.
The next call was at 5:56 p.m. our time to say that the Baby Girl had arrived at ~5:05 (our time), so things moved pretty quickly. So quickly that the I.V. hadn't even been fully inserted to administer pain meds when Victoria said she HAD to push, and so she did and our newest grandbaby is now in this world.
We don't know a name yet, but she was 8# 10-oz ! By contrast, their Baby Boy (now 4 years old), was only 6#-something when he was born. Have I mentioned that Daddy is about 6'2" (maybe more) and Mommy is barely 5'2"?
I wish I could have been there :( , dang vertigo!
