Just posting a quick update from the hospital -- I gave my husband an amazing Valentine gift yesterday morning with the birth of our seventh girl.
Camilla Eowyn was born at 10:09 via a scheduled induction (I figure if you're going to have to forever share birthday and Valentines gifts anyway, you might as well get the bragging rights of the actual day.). The IV and pitocin was started at around 7 a.m. and contractions for the first hour were pretty mellow, every ten to fifteen minutes. Things started moving more quickly after my water was broken at 8:00. My favorite anesthesiologist, Dr. Lind, gave me a wonderful epidural that took effect just as the contractions got very painful and intense, around 9:30, then Cami was born at 10:09. She's a pleasant little soul who doesn't cry much (so far). She kept me up a ton last night, so she's a typical Bartholomew baby -- not a sleeper, but a keeper!
She's beautiful, with a bit of light brown hair, and our biggest baby so far at 7 lbs 13 ounces. I'll post pictures when I get home later in the week.
