Since Poppins Mom already stole my thunder by announcing the arrival of my baby girl in the comments on the last post and Doula Sue compounded it by revealing her name, the only thing I am left with to do is to post a picture of my little daughter Tarana.
She arrived eight days early. The borderline low amniotic fluid from the Week 32 scan dipped to worrying low levels. So we decided to get her out safe and sound via c-section rather than wait for a labour that looked unlikely to happen in any case since she had not descended adequately. So yeah, I didn't get my VBAC but you know what, it didn't matter as much as I thought it would. She was born healthy and full-term and that makes how she got here nothing more than an irrelevant detail.
On to the vital stats. She weighed in at 3.2 kgs and is 50 cms long. The jury is still out on who she looks like but she looks quite different from what Ayaan looked like as a newborn. Talking of Ayaan, he has yet to meet his baby sister as he only comes back from Jaipur tonight with my mom. That should be fun and post-worthy :)
We are back home and settling down now. More later. Thanks a million for all the lovely wishes that you guys have already left.
