Arrival of Anna Riley

We are so excited that our beautiful girl is finally here. I am going to try to summarize what happened Thursday.

We were admitted to the hospital at 5 am. At 6:15 they started the piticoin and at 7 am they broke my water.  Thursday was a very busy day in L&;D so it took a little longer to get my epidural. I had started having contractions pretty bad and was definitely ready for the epidural. They finally came in to give me one at 11. This was very bad for me because they had to take it out and put it in a notch higher. The first time was horrible and the second time wasnt much better. I had been dilating about a cm an hour and was 100% effaced by lunch. Dr. Poist thought I was doing great and progressing at a good rate. I was enjoying this time resting and visiting with family. A little before 5 he checked me again and I had not made any progress in 2 hours. He said that her heart rate was getting too high and thought her head might be stuck and he suggested  a C-section. I was upset at this point. Not because I was having to move to plan B but I was just worried about her of course. The surgery prep started right away and we met Anna Riley at 5:41 pm. She was just beautiful! She weighed 8lbs even and was 20 3/4 inches long with dark brown hair.
