Hi just a quick mini update...My OB/GYN called my husband on Friday night ( I was out of town), so he said, my HCG levels looked good so far and he was "optimistic". So, some good news. However, we still have to see how the tests turn out this week. Thanks for the prayers and support. Be back later w/personals, I haven't had time to see what's been going on, going to take a nap now.

Oh, I just read updates on Melanie --- I am so thankful that you went to the other doctor!!! Sorry for the bedrest and platelet problems. You have been on a rollercoaster girl.. The most important thing is that the girls are OK. I hope things improve so you can at least be at home on bedrest!!

Dawn -- I hope you and maybe baby are well???

I hope all the other preggo's out there had a good weekend. Ok now off for a nap!

Holy cow! There is so much activity with the group this week.

Mel2, continuing to send sticky vibes to you and the baby.

Melanie, see that? We all knew, as did you, that work was NOT a good idea anymore. I'm glad you listened to your body and advocated for yourself by going to another doctor. Hopefully your "team" will figure out what's going on with you quickly, but the good news is you're being taken care of now. Enjoy the rest. Bed rest at the hospital is very different than bed rest at home with 3 boys and a stay-at-home husband!!

Christine, what does your OB say about your increased risk of contracting swine flu due to Jimmy having it now? I hope you're starting to feel better physically. You've really been through the ringer these past few months.

Dawn, is Baby Girl here yet?

Susan, how are you feeling? Do you have another appt tomorrow?

Hello to everyone else!!!

Life here has been a bit hectic this week. Having a baby with a 3 year old in the house is very different from having just a baby!

Default New Baby!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay in responding, but I have some news. :-)

Morgan Lorraine Bailey was born at 10:48 pm on Friday, September 25. She weighed 7 lbs, 14 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Everyone is fine and adjusting to life with the new baby. A few photos are attached.

She arrived at exactly 39 weeks. We just got home from the hospital yesterday, and it's amazing how scattered brained I am (I made a pot of coffee this morning, but forgot to actually add the coffee)!

My water broke at home in a light trickle that did not stop. I had no contractions when I got to the hospital, but once they confirmed that I was leaking amniotic fluid, the doctor said let's have a baby today! They started me on pitocin to start the contractions, and things progressed pretty fast. I did have an epidural (and was very pleased with it!). For the majority of the 7-hour labor, I was in no pain and the baby was pushed out pretty easily (well, that's due to the epidural).

More updates soon. I hope everyone is doing well! Once I get myself together, I'll send more personals and look forward to reading about more babies!

Have a great day,
Dawn
