After the pitocin, they made me wait for a good stream of contractions before I could get my beloved epidural. Luckily, I didn't have to have too many, nor we they that painful, before I got the good stuff. Once I did, I got very sleepy, like usual, but this is what sends me into real labor. Things go really fast once they put that needle in my back, but we still had a bit of time to kill.

|Her very first bath!|
|Her going home outfit, a wee bit big. I didn't get to rock the headband during delivery but I made sure to wear it the next two days.|
