Ardyn Isabel Johnson
Born Labor Day, Monday September 3rd at 11:36pm CST
6lbs 10 ounces and 21 inches long
13.4 inch head and 13 inch chest
Looks like a perfect mix of mom and dad!
A long labor, went in at 6cm dilated on Monday morning to have the water broke at 8am
Was at a 7 by noon, and an 8 by 2pm...
Hard labor at an 8 from 2pm-5pm
Hard labor at a 9 from 5pm-10:30pm, during which I abandoned any thoughts of a drug free natural birth and begged for an epidural.
At 10:30pm I was exhausted and still at a 9, and they thought her head was stuck and not going to come down, so an Emergency C Section was planned and the OR team was called in. As I was being prepped for a C-section, and given a catheter, her head came down and she was born!
