It is so crazy to think that a little over a week ago Dylan was not here. I don't really remember what it is like without her here anymore. She is perfect in every way and is such a good baby.
My labor and delivery went so well. I'd say I had it pretty easy and loved every minute of it! I had a scheduled appointment at the hospital for the 28th of June. The hospital called that morning at 7:30 am and off we went! Pitocin was started, Dr. Ott broke my water, and contractions got strong fast! I can say that for those who go natural are amazing, I sure wouldn't be able to do it! A few hours after my pitocin started, I got my epidural and oh how wonderful that was! I progressed very quickly and started pushing at 3:20 pm and Dylan arrived at 4:08 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 20.5 inches long. I will never forget that first moment I held her in my arms and the love I felt at that moment for her and Braeden. What a great experience that was for the both of us.
Recovery has been so good and not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Dylan only cries when she is hungry, tired or needs a diaper change and she sure is a good eater and I am very grateful for that! That is one thing I was so worried about was breatfeeding and she is a champ at that!
