Welcome Avery!

Welcome Avery Melissa Bell Posner! 
She made her grand entrance 7 days late on August 22nd at 6:28pm. I had gone to my 2nd biophysical appointment at 2pm that day and while there they were seeing contractions every 4-5min. I knew I was having contractions, but they weren't unbearable. I went home and about 1hr they had gotten a bit more uncomfortable so we decided to go back to the hospital. When I got there I was already 6-7cm dilated and around 3 hours later she arrived at 9lb 7oz! What a big girl!! It was a surprise to us all since Jonah was 7lb 11oz when he was born and I had measured and weighed the same with Avery my entire pregnancy. Thankfully, I was once again able to do it all natural with the help of our doula Beth and Jon.
Its definitely been busy with 2 babies and this blog post is a bit here are some pictures over the last month of the new member of the Posner Pack.
