A Precious Angel!!!

Addie has arrived!!!!!!!!

I woke up at midnight and was in labor.
We decided to make the trip to the hospital around 3:30 am.
When we arrived at the hospital I was already 2 cm dilated.
About an hour later my water broke and I was at 4 cm.
They scheduled my C-Section for 5:30 a.m. and Addison arrived at 6:00 a.m.
She weighs 7lbs. 3oz.
and is
18 3/4 inches long.
She has dirty blonde hair and she looks just like her Daddy.
Check back soon for pictures of Addie.

Happy New Year!!!!

37 week check-up

Today Addie measured 38 weeks and everything looks great!
We set an arrival date for January 9th at 12:30.
We can't wait to meet Addie in just 2 short weeks!

Addie's Room

All we need now is her.

We had our check-up today and Addie's heart rate is 138 BPM and my blood pressure is great.
It is St. Vincent's policy that they cannot schedule a C-Section before 39 weeks.
Someone from the hospital is going to call me at the end of this week or early next week to set it up.
I can't wait to find out the day our little girl will be arriving!

34 week check-up

Addie's heart rate is 138.
My blood pressure was great and my iron was a little low.
When we go back on the 20th we will decide on a date for the C-Section.
I have to wait until I am 39 weeks though.
The doctor said they can't "routinely" schedule one before then.
Addie is head down and getting ready to make her debut in just a few weeks.
We can't wait!

28 week check-up

I had my glucose test today and will get the results by tomorrow afternoon.
I saw Dr. Eye Candy this morning and we were so busy chatting that he forgot to tell me how I was measuring.
My blood pressure and her heart rate are both great.
He told me that the extreme cramping was from the scar tissue from my previous C-Section, but to keep a watch on the contractions and don't hesitate to call if it appeared to be a problem.
He also told me that if Addie is weighing in around 6 lbs. they may try to talk me out of having a C-Section if I go into labor.
Chris missed all of this because he had just gotten up to go to the little boy's room when they called me back.
My next appointment is November 22 and after that one I will start going for my 2 week visits.

4D Ultrasound at 28 weeks

Addison was being stubborn (wonder who she gets that from???) today and wouldn't turn so we could get a whole shot of her face.
They were able to tell us that she does have hair and confirmed that she is definitely a little girl!
We can't wait to meet her.
Only 2 1/2 months to go!

Doctor visit

The doctor that I saw this afternoon got a page as soon as he walked in the room so I think it was the quickest appointment I've ever had!
He listened to her heart rate real quick and said she sounds great.
I am measuring right on time.
My blood pressure was great so I go back in three weeks for my glucose test (oooh fun) and next office visit.

It's getting tight in here

Julien and I were just laying on the couch feeling Addison move when we saw my stomach move for the very first time!
She is really showing off now!
I have a doctors appointment tomorrow - check back for an update.

No sleep

Addison kept me up ALL night long hopping around like a little jack rabbit!
It was pretty bad, the child didn't sleep at all.
The nausea is coming back from time to time, but otherwise we are doing good!

Julien feels her too!

Julien felt Addie kick for the first time today.
Chris and Julien are so thrilled and can't wait to feel her move each night!
She is kicking very hard now and is very active.
She feels like a little monkey running around in my tummy.
It is making me feel a little queasy in the morning when she kicks that hard.
She could at least wait until I have my breakfast before she starts to do somersaults.
I guess she is trying to tell me that she is HUNGRY!

Chris felt Addie kick

Chris felt Addie move for the first time today.
He was so excited to finally be able to feel some of what I get to experience everyday!
