Madelyn Francis Stevens

Quick update until I have more time for details:

Birthday - October 28th, Wednesday at 12:47am

Weight - 8 pounds 11 smallest baby

Height - 22 inches longest baby

Not sure who she looks like, she has dark blue eyes but i think they will turn brown. She does not have red hair, it is very dark, but not a lot of it. She is very beautiful and perfect!

I was induced at 7:30am on Tuesday and was in labor until 12:47 the next day, I pushed for 2 hours with nothing and they decided to use the vacuum because she was stuck, sure enough she was sunny side up. She has a nice mark on her head from the vacuum.

After birth I hemorrhaged for a few hours and almost had to go to ICU. We didn't leave the delivery room until 4am due to trying to get the bleeding to stop.

Baby had to stay for 36 hours due to the beta strep b, thank goodness she has no signs of it, I did get 3 bags of antibiotics during labor. She is completely healthy.

More info later..........

8 days late!

Who would have thought on your 3rd child you would be so late. My mom flew in from Ohio yesterday since my dad had to leave. I am very uncomfortable and hot all the time but hanging in there. Tuesday looks like it will be the day they induce me, hopefully it will be an easy induction, and hopefully Brad will be able to update my blog :) Love you hunny!

My dad came to see the baby be born and he had to leave today back to Ohio, I am so sad he missed the birth :( Still no signs of baby coming any time soon!

Back from Doctors!

Well Baby passed all the tests with flying colors!!!!!!! They will induce me next Tuesday. We have to wait a whole week!

2 days over due!

So today is test day lets keep our fingers cross they decide to take the baby!

At 9:45 I have to go to the doctors and they are going to see how the baby sounds and if I am dilating any more.

Then I have to eat and have a full stomach, I have to go check into the hospital at 12:15 and have an AFI done which checks the fluid around the baby, then I have to go have a stress test done.

Then I have to drink a bunch of water and go to another place at 3:45 and have an ultrasound done to see if the baby is over 9 pounds!

What a crazy day! Wish me luck! I'll have Brad post if we have this baby!

Happy Birthday today to my mom!

Tuesday...39.5 weeks..or close enough

Well woke up this morning and I was bleeding, and the electricity was out. I called Brad at work and said I thought we should go to the hospital. We took the kids to Angee's.....Thank you so much Angee!!!!!!!!! Went to the hospital, took forever to get there with the flooding on the freeways. They kept me forever it felt like. We found out:

1. My fluid is a little low it is a 9 it should be between a 10 and 20. I get retested Monday. It was like a 15 I think a few weeks ago.

2. The baby's heart rate was very jumpy...I think she was just moving around a lot.

3. It is a girl....Brad asked when they did the ultrasound.

4. I am bleeding but it is normal it means I could be starting labor. The nurse said within 48 hours, the doctor said with in the week. I still think HAlloween!

12 days left!!!!!!!!!!

Well had a hard time last night. I was having contractions all night long! I don't think I ever went to sleep. To top it off I kept feeling wet like my water broke, I hate that feeling. I thought by morning I was going to die! I made Brad stay home from work! I had a doctors appointment this morning and my water did not break and I am about 1.5 centimeters dilated. The doctor didn't think I would make it another week, but I have felt fine the rest of the day, my prediction is Halloween! So, no news.
