She has arrived!

The full birth post will be a bit longer, but she, yes SHE has finally arrived. We're just home from the hospital and it has been a whirlwind past 4 days. Zigs is doing well. She came in at about 6.5 lbs, so the doctor who told us she was going to be HUGE was full of it. She's adorable and so tiny. It's hard to remember how tiny they are in the beginning. I learned a number of things from this experience so far:
1) Nurses who tell you that the contractions you're having aren't really that bad, while you're shaking and trying to concentrate on breathing are a**holes!
2) Anesthesiologists are amazing, amazing, amazing people and any fear of an epidural goes away once you're in the thick of it
3) Functioning on 40 min-1.5 hour chunks of sleep over multiple days is possible and will continue for quite some time.
