Heidi Diane Hunsaker was born October 30, 2010 at 12:46 PM, weighing 5 lbs 8 oz, and was 18.5 inches long.
Labor was hard, but actually not as hard as I feared it would be! Of course, once they broke my water at 11:15 AM, it only took a couple minutes before I had my first really hard contraction and it was only 1 1/2 hours before she was out. I can't imagine doing that for 36 hours straight like I know some women do.
She is beautiful. She is healthy. She is a LAZY nurser! But, hey, I'm wiped out after a hard day, too, and she went through worse than I did.
I can't believe how we just got to spend time with each other. No one whisked her away. No one was doing a bunch of tests on her. She wasn't hooked up to monitors. She didn't have any tubes attached to her. Her eyes were open already. And best of all, I could hold her as long as I wanted. What a remarkable experience! Is this what it's like for full-term babies? Wow! Matt and I just couldn't get over it.
Anyway, photos coming soon!
