Things started moving really fast at this point nurses rushed in to prepare the room and they called the Doctor. The Doctor checked in and was telling me about what was going to happen and just checking in when I had to interrupt her to say that something was going on and I needed to be checked. At about that time I gave birth to...a water balloon. It seems that my water had sprung a high leak, but much of the bag was still intact so as my body was pushing it pushed out the bag of water and any remaining amniotic fluid. The doctor called all the nurses over to take a look at this unusual sight and I was reminded to ask for a mirror so that I could watch the birth. The bag was broken and in just one contraction with a push for her head and a push for her body, Elizabeth was born at 3:24pm. It all happened so fast I almost didn't believe it was real. She was 6 pounds 4 ounces and 19.25 inches long. She had some fluid in her stomach (probably from being in the sac for so late into labor) but it was cleared out within an hour of her birth.
We are all in love with our beautiful baby girl!
