Meet Kaylee Virginia

Born September 19, 2012.  5lbs 12oz.  18.75 inches long.  

Quick birth story cause honestly there isn't much to tell.  The doctor said she wasn't gaining weight since the last checkup two weeks prior and to be on the safe side he felt that she didn't need to stay in there any longer.  This honestly came as a big shock to us cause we had hoped to have a natural birth but not an induction.  I didn't want Kaylee taking the hit of the induction meds not to mention she's so tiny that I didn't know if she could handle the birthing process.  So we chose the C-section, so I would take the brunt of the meds.  5:23pm that evening we had a little angel.  

She is really a good baby.  She does nurse A LOT, but she's super tiny.  She's just trying to make up for what she lacked at birth I'm sure.  She doesn't like to be put down, but most newborns don't.  At our last checkup on Monday, she was almost back to her birthweight already.  All of the doctors and nurses have been really impressed with her health and progress so far.  We are very blessed!

Kaylee is being born today

Quick update before I head to the doctor said that Kaylee has stopped growing, so he is doing an emergency C section on me this afternoon at 5pm.  So we will be off to the hospital soon to get our little sweetie pie out asap!  :)

Week 38

I know it has been awhile since I've updated, but everything has been pretty much the same here.  My bump hasn't grown very much yet the doctor assures me Kaylee is growing.  Last week she was around 5lbs 13oz (give or take the standard 11oz., which means probably closer to 5lbs). 

I've been feeling a bit under the weather since Labor Day.  It comes and goes.  Some aches and pains are beginning to set in too, but I'm grateful they waited until the last month to do so.  I find it difficult to stay in one place for too long.  If I sit down for longer than an hour, I get Braxton Hicks type cramps.  If I stand up for longer than an hour, I get backaches.  This makes my nesting instinct very inconvenient.  I want to do many things all at once, but my body is not allowing me too.  Frustrating! 

Needless to say, I'm ready for Kaylee to arrive at anytime now although I'm sure I will be much more amiable if I'm over this head cold.
