The much awaited arrival of Soni - happened.
Date: 12th June 2008. Yes, she managed to avoid both the other birthdays - and landed plum in the middle of them.
No of labor hours: 3. From 33 hours the first time to 3 hours, we're sure improving. I woke up at 2am with mind numbing pain, woke up hubby at 3am after trying vainlessly to time the contractions. Reached hospital at 3.45am. She arrived at 5.15am.
Vital Stats: Height - 20"
My Reaction: Somebody give me an epidural - I cant do this.
The mid-wife's reaction: "When I first saw you, I told myself, this woman's not even in labor. When I examined you - you were fully dilated. Mashallah. But what terrible pushing."
Hubby's Reaction: Can we not give her any pain relief??
Sonny's Reaction: Ranges from complete ignoring to 'bye bye baby'. At times it even results in wild kissing.
She looks like: A photocopy of Sonny.
How am I coping: So far so good.
