Birth Announcement
« on: March 05, 2011 at 09:11 AM »
Rosalyn Scarlett was born at 12 noon on Friday March 4th.  Induced labor at 39 weeks, 1 day.
She weighed 7 lbs, 1oz, and 20 in long.  She is super cute if I do say so myself!  :) 

It's (Roz-uh-lynn), some people have asked, or called her Rose-a-lynn.  But, Rosalyn is the proper spelling according to babynames.com

- What do u guys think?  Should I have spelled it differently?  Guess its too late now...

Thanks everyone!  We are home from the hospital now and so happy! 
Doctor started the pitocin around 6am.  Broke my water around 10am and just 2 minutes later I was begging for my epidural - ha ha!  At 11:05 I was 10cm dialated and Rosalyn was born right at 12:00.  I have a painful hemmroid or two, and 3 stitches, but she was totally worth it.  My husband has been so wonderful and supportive.  He's a diaper-changing machine.  I want to think of a nice gift for him.

I'm trying to figure out how to put an image of Rosalyn in one of my posts.  I'll keep working on that.

Good Luck Ladies - you all deserve a happy ending too!

 If you can't post the pics on here, which I tried numerous times unsuccessfully, put them on the Keepem Cooking Facebook page!  Looking forward to seeing them!

Despite very little sleep, I'm feeling better every day.  Have some back pain when standing too long - that could be a side effect of the bed rest??
