Meet Lucia Merritt Armijo
Meet Lucy! We had a rather busy day yesterday. And I thought I had
three weeks to go. She hit the full term mark of 37 weeks and got
things going as soon as possible at 5 am.
She arrived at 6:35 pm weighing in at 6 pounds 6 ounces and 19 inches.
She was almost a natural birth by total accident. But after three
hours of pushing, I finally got the epidural I begged for. She came
out face up. It was quite a traumatic experience. But some how she
managed to arrive without a c-section, even though I was drugged and
the attendings were ready to roll me down the hall.
I’ve got plenty of drugs now. Well, not exactly enough. But other than
that, we are great.
