Margaret “Maggie” Clare's Birth Story

We were scheduled for induction to begin at 12:01am on 9/19. At 2 am I was given Cytotec to dilate further (I was at 3.5). The Cytotec triggered powerful back labor and contractions. 4 hours after receiving the Cytotec I received my epidural then the Pitocin. I was progressing, but even at 9cm dilated my contractions weren't strong enough or close enough together. I began pushing around 8 pm and by 1 am her head was still not fully out and I was exhausted. So we decided to do a c-section and at 2:39 am on 9/20 Maggie was born. She was healthy and perfect and everything I had prayed for!

Thank you for checking in! Maggie is 10 weeks old. She is 22.5 inches long and 9 lbs 11 ounces. She is hitting all of her milestones and her pediatrician was amazed at how well she can hold up her head! She is an easy baby and only cries when she is hungry. She just grunts for being wet or tired. She is a sweet, social baby. She giggles and smiles a lot. She is a dream come true!
