39 weeks, 7 hours of labor and she's finally here!




Long story short, was induced on 9/24 at 8:30am and little Kailey Rose arrived at 5pm weighing in at 8lbs 6 oz (WAY over the 6 1/2lbs that they estimated when scheduling my inducement for low amniotic fluid). It was hilarious, my labor went so fast that we had to wait for my dr. to arrive at the hospital to deliver her! They sent me home on Saturday but kept her in NICU through Tuesday for monitoring of a rapid heartbeat. My mom, husband and nephew all have heart irregularities, but thankfully all of her tests came back normal and the pediatrician said she's a healthy little girl. We took an infant CPR class (the video scared the bejeepers out of me)and have a stethoscope to monitor her heart rate at home. Anyway, it's been a crazy, crazy, crazy journey to parenthood but wow was it worth it! This time last year we were starting IVF treatments...can you believe it???? AND, she has UBER hair! The kid doesn't look a lick like me...she's all dad!!!
