While the mr and I headed to the hospital around 7:45 am.
Arriving there- they informed us that they wouldn't have a bed ready for 2 hrs.
(same exact thing happened when having ellie)
We didn't mind.
We took advantage of one last date.
Headed to breakfast at T.C. Egginton's.
I ordered a monstrous pancake.
Ate the whole thing.
The Mr ordered eggs benedict.
Also, polishing it off completely.
Arriving back at the hospital.
We got a room at 10:30 am.
And then the usual.
Questions. IV. Fluids. Pitocin.
Because this is our fourth baby girl in four years.
We are regulars at Banner Desert.
And know most all the nurses.
The nurse in the left of the pic (Jaime) delivered Ellie, while (Kathy) on the right delivered Truly.
There is one nurse who has- helped with all four deliveries.
Once our name goes up on the white board- we get lots of nurses coming in to say Hi.
We have always felt like we were in such good care.
And then finally around 2 am.
Just like the last two.
It was time.
They got the warmer ready.
The PPA doctor came right in.
And at 2:17 am- we had our baby girl.
We named her Scarlett.
Although I am still sometimes not sure about that name.
Maybe I will be one of those moms who changes her name.
Sometimes we call her Blakely.
The MR has liked that name since we had Ruby.
Time will tell.
Lots of anxiety filled this delivery.
For both the Mr and myself.
I know they like you to have skin to skin contact once the baby is born.
But I really like it when they take the baby-
make sure she is okay. And then hand her to me.
She was perfect.
And still is.
Not sure if she chose us. Or we chose her. Or maybe a little of both.
But we feel so blessed and grateful to have her. Hopefully forever.
Something even better than having four beautiful baby girls- is having him for my husband.
Being able to bring life into this world- is miraculous.
I never see a new born baby without thinking that. Simply a miracle.
