What a week!
Today, we came in for a nice ultrasound with the in-laws so they can see, and maybe beg our obgyn for an earlier inducement. We sort of got what we wanted, and then some! We never made it to the obgyn appointment as things had moved on!
In a whirlwind, it turned from being low on amniotic fluid to immediate inducement followed by lots of pain then to much earlier than expected epidural to … well, let’s just say a lot of folks rushed in and thirty minutes later we are the proud parents ofMackenzie Lynne van der Stock!
Awesome! She might have come a little early (38 weeks), but that’s not a day too soon for Tanya, who has had a very difficult pregnancy.
Mackenzie weighed 2.75 kg (about 6 lbs 1 oz after conversion – even the US folks measure in metric for babies now!) and is 50 cms long today.It’s been very exhausting and I’m using a tiny connection to the Internet via my mobile phone, so things will have to wait until tomorrow. We have photos and movies.
