Gwendolyn Jayne is here!

She came super fast, and super smooth, and I got my VBAC! (vaginal birth after cesarean)
I woke up at 2 am with contractions, and she was born at 4:50am. We were at the hospital less than 30 minutes before she was born!
She was 9 pounds 8 ounces and 20.5 inches long

She had her two week checkup on Monday, and she weighed 10 pounds 9 ounces, so she gained 1.5 pounds in two weeks! (Her discharge weight was 9lbs 2oz.) She also measured in at 22.5", but I am guessing they measured her wrong at birth, because it is impossible to grow 2" in two weeks, isn't it?

Anyway, she is having no growth problems, that is for sure! :)
