My surrogate daughter is here!

She was delivered at 10:27 this morning.

My mom and I were on our way to the hospital (about an hour away). 30 minutes into the drive I told her she needed to pull over, there was NO way we were going to make it to the hospital. 

Luckily we were right by a rest stop on the interstate, so Mom pulled over and called the ambulance. Two contractions later I was halfway in the back seat and she decided that was the time to be born! My mom made it around in time to kind of catch her. She came out pink and crying which was lucky because even though we're both nurses, neither mom nor I have ever worked with newborns!

The ambulance made it about 5 minutes later. Then we got to drive REALLY FAST with the sirens on:) It was pretty exciting. We've both been doing fine. Her parents met us at the hospital in a little bit of shock, but everything has calmed down in the last 11 hours and they're settling into their new roles. 

So I had an unmedicated, unassisted carbirth!! lol. Didn't even have to get an IV at any point!

The new little one:) Isn't she a peach?
