World's Fastest Post!
After a whirlwind of doctor's appointments Thursday morning, Matt and I came home to wait for things to get started, but before we knew it, we were on the phone with my doctor who was telling us to get the hospital right away to be induced. My bloodwork showed extremely high urine protein and low platelets. So in a very panicky/excited/hullaballoo, we quickly threw our things together and rushed off to the hospital!
A more detailed version of this is coming, but we had a big scare involving a blood clot (that thankfully didn't exist afterall) and visions of going home empty handed. It was terrifying. Thankfully God had us covered and at 2:11am, our daughter was born!!
I am so happy to introduce to you... Lillian "Lilly" Rebbecca C. We are absolutely enamored:) (More pics to come-- I am so mad at myself for accidentally turning on some crazy camera setting so my pics are all really grainy. If anyone can help me fix this, I would be so grateful. These are such priceless moments!!)
You can see how teeny tiny she is in that carseat! Even her newborn outfit from Auntie Lisa is hanging off of her little bod. She was 6lbs 15.5 oz at birth and is down to 6lb 6oz today, but if she keeps up nursing like she did for 3.5 hours straight this morning, she should be plumping up quickly!
