"So what exactly happened?" - the short version

I woke up Monday morning with a backache that came and went. I went into the hospital thinking I would get sent home to rest. Luckily, they checked my cervix right before they sent me home and it was dialated to a 3/4.

So into Boston I went, they gave me steroid shots to mature the baby's lungs and 36 hours later, with no epidural, I delivered our 2lb 3oz. baby girl.

The first pictures of her are so hard to look at...and at the same time I can see that it is the same little girl I snuggle with now. I could tell her personality from the very first day.
