Ivy's birth in pictures. Promise it is totally G-rated :)
She came on her on at 38 weeks/5 days gestation. The delivery was an excruciating one. Out of 5 deliveries, she was my first with a completely failed epidural, but by the time I realized it wasn't working I was too far along in my labor to get any kind of IV meds or pain block. It was too late to re-do the epidural. Moderate labor for 4 hours, super tough labor for about an hour and a half and then enormous pain for the last 15 minutes. She came quickly and painfully after 2 pushes. All natural. She was worth it. We love her so!
Delivering a baby is all kinds of miracles.
These pictures make me weep.
