I finally broke down and called Amanda to see how it went. She had a planned c-section on May 18 at 12:00. Maija Grace was born at 12:07pm weighing in at 5 pounds 12 oz. She is 18 and 3/4 inches. She has lots of golden blond hair that is somewhat curly. She is down to 5 lbs 4 oz but everything is looking good. She has not had to go to the NICU and has been rooming in with them. Amanda said she has a little jaundice, but not enough to cause concern, just keeping her in the sunlight. Everything went well with the surgery and recovery. Amanda was on the mag for 24 hours, but she got through that and everything looks great! She probably won't go home for a couple of days. She said to tell you all that she is looking forward to getting back home and chatting with you all, but it will probably be a couple of weeks. Her computer at home is upstairs and she won't be able to go upstairs for a couple of weeks. I am just so relieved all went well. I am so excited for her and Tim!
