Jeanette Mae was born on Thursday, January 23rd at 4:24am. After 27 hours of labor, I ended up needing a c-section due to the shape of my pelvic bone and the position of the baby. The last three hours of the labor were all pushing so I was pretty disappointed when I heard the news that I could not deliver on my own. She weighed in at 8lbs, 6ozs and is 21.5 inches long. I'm not 100% sure yet what color her eyes will be but they are dark so I would assume they will be brown or green and she has a head full of dark hair!
Here are a few photos and I'll be sure to update everyone by the weekend with her birth story since it's rather long. I'm so glad that I took a notebook to the hospital and wrote everything down that happened over those 27 hours and the 4 days beyond that where we stayed at the hospital.

and felt more human. I didn't get to shower for four days!
Thanks to everyone for your awesome comments and support during my pregnancy. I can't wait to share her birth story with everyone!
