Our little daughter was born last night at 9:34 pm. She was 6 pounds and 7 ounces and 18 inches long. We were able to deliver vaginally.

My wife's BP was all over the place during labor, but did not get too high. She is very tired, but doing very well all things considered.

They were very concerned about the baby's lungs when she was born, but she is going well. She even latched on and nursed as soon as they were done checking her out.

She did not have to go to the NICU and will hopefully be home with her Mom tomorrow night or Monday morning.

Hope all went well today and baby is not in the NICU. Looking forward to a good update.

Oh my, we will pray for you. Joa was born at 34wks 5days and was in the NICU for as long as I was in the hospital and went home with us. The fact that you are having a girl is beneficial when it comes to lung development. Girls do better than boys!

I cannot wait to see pics.

You will all be in my= prayers!! I hope Gianna can avoid the NICU... Sam's lung maturity amnio I had came back a little undeveloped as well but they still went ahead with the induction...he did pretty good. He did end up in the NICU for a day under the oxygen tent but then other than Jaundice he did great!!!

And the rollercoaster ride continues.

The tests results came back at 11pm last night and said that her lungs were not quite ready. The peri and OB looked at it this morning and said that the risk is small. They want to induce today knowing that this a risk Gianna could end up in the NICU, but they say it is less than 5%.

So hopefully we will have our little girl tomorrow if past induction times hold true.

She had the amnio. She described it as like an IV stick but in your stomach. She said that it did hurt, but not too bad. It was afterwards that she was left with a sore spot that the baby decided to start kicking over and over. Now that did not feel so good.

We will not have the results back until late tonight since they had to send it out to an off-site lab. We are expecting to start the induction in the morning.
