Personal post: My neice is here!!

Hey everyone!!

I'm a little late in doing this post but I wanted to share with everyone that my sister/bestie Rachel had her baby girl on April 20th! Her due date was the 19th and they didn't want her to go past her due date so they induced her that day at 4:00pm and they put her on Cervadil since she wasn't dilated at all. It lasts 12 hours and the next morning when they checked her she was 3cm dilated but as the day went on she only progressed another 2cm. She got her epidural in the afternoon but once the evening of the 20th came around they decided that since she wasn't progressing anymore and the baby's head wasn't all the way down it was best if she got a c-section. I was shocked when she chose me to go in the room with her and I'm very happy and thankful she did! It was a really cool experience, I got to see the baby come out and hold her for the first time. I of course cried and was so happy for Rachel!

Gianna Jade was born at 7:12pm, 8 lbs. 11 oz. and 20 inches.

I'm babysitting her for the first time as I type out this post so her mommy can get a little nap in and it makes me so happy!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, I had to do it because I'm a proud auntie!
