Here's a picture of me 39 and a half weeks pregnant. (I designed the sweater with the last pregnancy as a maternity sweater, but miscarried early. It was so wonderful to be able to wear it this time.)
Shirley arrived Tuesday morning at 0241 on the 4th of March. 5 pounds, 11 ounces, 19 and 1/4 inches long. (I'm sure there's a metric equivalent for those, but doing math is way beyond my capacity right now.) I'll save the gory details of labor for another post, but the emergency c-section wasn't really how I'd imagined her arriving in the world.
