My princess is here! ;)
« on: November 17, 2011 at 03:42 PM »
Hi ladies,
my lovely Laila Madeleine arrived on 11-11-11 at 6:24pm. 6lb 1oz at 36w6d.  We both went home 2 days later. I started having contractions ( I thought they were BH) at 11 am. They started to get organized and because labor with my son in 2009 was so asymptomatic, I went to L&D. Sure enough I was dilated to 4cm and 90% effaced.
I just wanted to let all the ladies on bedrest know that the countless hours I spent crying, worrying, feeling utterly alone, and scared are totally a thing of the past!!! When I touch her lovely cheek or smell her soft hair none of it matters.
You all are doing an amazing thing for your babies. And without Angela's forum or the posts from you all I dont think I would have made it!!!
With much gratitude and love to you all,
Mumtaz
