Here we go......

UPDATE: Sara gave birth to a Baby GIRL, 7lbs. 4oz, 19.5 ins long, at 12:19pm Wed. Name is to be revealed later...NO DRUGS at all, no stitches, a completely posterior birth, really rough. But I hear that baby has beautiful dark hair and is precious. Pics to come soon.

Ok, This is it! I went to the Dr this afternoon and she said that although I am STILL a 2 (I know, RIGHT!) I do seem to be progressing and that cervidil would do the trick. That way I shouldnt need Pitocen and I can have the water birth that I want. I could just wait some more but I am So done that I feel like this is my best option. We'll see how it works out! lol! Hopefully it will end with a baby no matter what! lol! :)) So......Here goes!!! I am leaving here now and cervidil can take a while to work so i will try to keep you posted as to my progress. Thus ends my LONG wait.............. :)

Yay! I hope to be an auntie (again) by tomorrow! I've had cervidil before and I hope it works for you! I'm praying.

By the way, I will be posting updates here in the comment section as I hear from Sara.

Mrs. Sara said...

Baby time! We'll be praying, Fu! Can't wait to meet your little girl! (I'm pretty sure it's a girl, anyway!)

UPDATE! Sara called and she is NOT getting Cervadil. When the nurse checked her at the hospital she was 4cm...Yay! She is having irregular contractions, but they are giving it a little time considering that she has been 2cm for a month and in the last few hours she is 4cm. So, keep the prayers coming that she continues to progress and does not have to be induced. :-)

Can't wait to see pictures of that little girl.

Mrs. Sara said...

Aww, your baby has the same birthday as my beloved Memo. She turned 88 yesterday!

Sarafu said...

Thank You Guys!!!! :)) I am sitting in the hospital now typing this. I appreciate all your thoughts and prayers!! I SOOOOO Needed them!!!!! It wasnt an easy delivery (I guess few are, lol) but somehow I did it! :) I am going to try to see if I can get some pics on here somehow. Maybe I will have Daniel email me some and post them. I will try to give a short synopsis of the delivery as well. The baby is REALLY INSANLY adorable, and can you believe that I had a GIRL!!!! :))It still blows my mind when I say the word "her". Its Soooo bizarre!!!!! I cant wait to show her off. She is doing really great and I am seem to be recovering fairly quickly. :) I will post a pic and the name here in a few minutes, hopefully anyway.....we're debating the middle name. :)

Mrs. Sara said...

I think her middle name should be Sara. As in Auntie Wu. ;)

Sarafu said...

OMG!!!! You guys remember my Names!!! The were Isabella and Emma. Unfortunatly those names have been taken by a third of the other little little girls in the nation. :) LOL!!! I cant beleive you guys remember that!! :))
I'm changing the babys name to Tawanda! Oh wait..... Its Actually La Sara! Anyone ever seen that on You Tube? So Funny!

Elizabeth F. said...

I saw this cute game at Target the other day called "Bella Sara"...and I thought if you named the baby Isabella...I'd so get that for you! he..he...So, I waited...LOL! I can't wait to see her pics. Tell Daniel to hurry up or the crowd will start protesting.
