Our daughter, Sedae (pronounced Se-day), was born May 20, 2010 at 5:55pm, weighing 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 21 inches long. She was 10 days past her due date and let me tell you, it was the longest 2 weeks of our lives!
The morning of the 20th, we finally called in to our midwives and said "you need to get this baby out today!" They agreed, but still wanted to proceed with the least invasive measures first. So, I had to drink castor oil, again. It took a couple hours for it to take effect and were seeing the same results as last time, mild contractions that were starting to stall out. So we put Tayden down for his nap, called Rich's sister Bekah over to stay with him, and we, along with my sister Lori, headed to Motherwise to get this baby out. Little did we know what we were in for next!
We instantly bonded and it was the most amazing feeling. I missed that with Tayden because he was on oxygen immediately after. I had slight tearing this time around too, with her coming so fast. Tayden came about an hour after she was born to meet his, at that point, still nameless "baby sister" (we didn't have a name chosen for about a week after she was born!).
