Callie is Here!

So it took me a few weeks to get back on here, but Callie is here. She was born April 6, 2009 at 12:11PM. She was 5lbs 9oz and 19inches long. She was born at 35 weeks and 5 days, but she is super healthy! She got a 10 on her APGAR and did not need any help breathing or anything! It was such a relief that she was healthy. I was so worried about her. I found out on the 4th that it was necessary for me to be induced if I wanted to try to have her without a C-Section. I bearly made it and had some bumps along the way, but all of the nurses and my family helped me push through. I feel so much better now and they were right! As soon as you have the baby when you have preeclampsia, you feel like a million bucks.

I love being a mom and Sean is having a blast being a father! We are trying to get used to the feeding schedule every 3 hours, but other than that, everything is great and she is just perfect! Obviously I am biased.......I will work on doing more posts and putting up pictures because we have tons, especially with my mom being home!

35 Weeks and the fun has begun!

So, I went to the hospital on Monday for my normal testing for preeclampsia, and I officially have it now. I will be staying in the hospital until I either go into labor or they induce me due to complications from the preeclampsia. Hopefully it will be soon. The baby is super healthy and doing really well. Sean loves the hospital pull out couch and will just have to get used to it!

My parents made it back just in time for me to be put in the hospital, so all of the fun things we were going to do at home will not be happening, but it is so nice to be able to let Sean go back to work when nothing is happening and my parents are here to stay with me. My mom sits here with me and my dad comes often. He is off shopping for a car for them and comes in between doing all of that. He is a big help and the dogs are so glad he is home! With Sean and I being gone, they love having him there. He is their best friend and they know who to go to for what they want and to be spoiled!

Hopefully our baby girl will be here soon! The assured us that she should not have any major issues, just may need some help staying warm if she is little. Other than that, if I can stay healthy we will be in good shape. My blood pressure is all over the place, and at some point they will tell me that's enough and will induce me. We are doing well though, Sean just needs to get some good sleep, luckily he's a fireman.......
