    Short Birth Story--Gwen is here!

    Sorry this is so short!

    Gweneth Grace --- 8lbs 14oz and 21 inches long

    Born April 4th at 10:14pm

    We had a difficult 14 hours of labor where the epidural failed to work. I had 2nd degree tearing. It was a much different experience than we had planned for but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat for my precious baby girl. She is so beautiful! She's perfect! I will post more details soon.
