Well, she's here. No pictures yet because we forgot the USB cable for the camera, but TCBIM is going home to get it today, so there will be some later.
At 11:59 p.m., Charlotte Jane finally made her entrance. Face up. I REALLY don't recommend having a baby face up. It REALLY hurts, even when you do have huge amounts of epidural drugs running thru your body. She's 7 lbs, 12 oz, 21 inches long and seems perfect. She's currently lying in her bassinet next to me, sleeping away, like the good girl that she is. She nurses like a champion and boy, does she let you know when she's pissed off! She already has a scowl that'll put the fear of god into you.
I have a uterine infection and the midwife had to go back up inside my uterus to pull out a bowl full of blood clots. Loads of fun, that one. But it seems to be getting better - I'll be on antibiotics for the next 24 hours. It wasn't the easiest delivery, but all in all, not too horrible. TCBIM WILL be phoning the urologist today, though. Snip, snip, baby. I've done more than my share, he can join in a little of the pain.
The coolest thing - my cousin in Madrid also delivered her little girl, Chloe, yesterday, so the girls will share a birthday. Barely, but hey, it's the same day, that's all that matters.
And now, I haven't had anything to eat since 9 yesterday morning, so I'm going to see what they offer for food at this place. I'd eat dried linoleum right about now, I'm so freakin' hungry.
