    Hi everyone,
    Wanted to let everyone know that I have just returned to work after being off for 16 weeks. Sydney Addalyn was born Nov. 29th 8lbs 0.8 oz and 20 inches long. She is doing great. I was induced and I must say it went very well. was induced @ 6am and she arrived at 222pm. The worst part was the epidural. They attempted to put it in while I was 3 centimeters and it took them 6 times with 2 different people attempting to get it in right (my back is curved) they shot medicine in every time they thought they had it in (it was excruciating, stayed swollen, bruised, and very painful for about 2 weeks didnt even want my shirt on it) so by the time they got it in right I was super super numb lol. Slept more than not from about 930 am til 215ish (when I had that bowel movement feeling), pushed twice and she was here. Didnt require any stitches! Stayed in the hospital 24 hrs after she was born, then we headed home. Most of the pain in my hips is gone, but now they pop and crack a lot even my pelvis does (that feels really wierd).
    But we are doing great, especially since we figured out that she has a dairy intolerance, since I have cut out dairy from my diet all is right with the world again lol. DD and DS are the greatest helpers ever! And DH is amazing!
    Hope everyone has a quick easy delivery!! Best of Luck to all!
