Well the big news is our daughter Amy had her baby 3 weeks early. She had an internal exam last Fri and she was 3 centimeters dilated and 80% effaced meaning the baby was in position.
Sunday night her contractions were strong about every 5 min. and because I was 1 ½ hrs away she had a friend stay with the kids over night until I drove up early Mon morning. (Sun night traffic back to Philly from the shore is very heavy) Emma Joy was born at 5:08 am weighing 5 lbs 11 oz.
My daughter’s first child was breech, feet first, so she needed a Cesarean…and then she had 3 natural deliveries aka VBAC, Vaginal Birth After Cesarean they call them. (It is important to read about this and talk to your doctor. I am glad she did not have to deal with major surgery again. So Emma was born Aug 8th, the day before my daughter and my birthdays Aug 9th. She weighed 5 lbs 11 oz. We are so blessed to have a healthy child and that Mom is doing fine although tired.
Thank you God for a healthy baby and safe delivery. It's so good her husband will be around to help before classes start in a few weeks.
Enjoy the last weeks of summer! Jennifer aka Gigi
