A day late, but she's here!

I guess you can never expect things to go as planned.

Aubrey Margaret was born Thursday, October 9th at 12:23 pm.
She weighed 7lbs 5oz and was 20 inches long.

We went in Wednesday morning to be induced, but at 6pm I was still only 2-3 centimeters so they turned off the pitocin and we were told we would start over Thursday morning. So, after a full day of contractions every 2-4 minutes, we had to try to get a good nights sleep at the hospital to start all over the next day. At 6am they started the pitocin again, but this time my doctor broke my water at 7am and things moved along fairly quickly. So, after a long day and some disappointment, she finally decided to have her birthday a day late.
