Deanna (Annie) Munk was born Monday, August 20 at 3:11.
After waiting and waiting for the last 9 months, I finally convinced our doctor to let us be induced at 40 weeks and 3 days. I have never gone into labor on my own and am doubtful that my body can actually do that. I don't mind being induced, in fact I like that I can pack my bags, clean my house and vacuum my floor and leave for the hospital with out feeling any pain. Here I am with my "humongous" belly right before we left.(Laura loved to tell me I was humongous.)
They started me with cervadil at about 10 pm. At 9am the next morning I was dialated to a 2 and they broke my water. The contractions started to get closer and stronger and I got an epidural. By 3 pm, we were ready to push the baby out and after 3 very quick pushes, she was here! It always surprises us how fast it goes at the end.
She was 6 lbs 14 oz, 18 1/2 inches long. I think she is beautiful and when she opens her eyes she looks just like her daddy.
