Thanks to Ashley for hacking in and giving you the update...a little shout out to her...woohoo!!! I went into the hospital around 5:00 am having a preeclamsia headache and very high blood pressure...by the time my Dr. got around to me he said he couldn't very well send me home with a headache (I wasn't have any contractions) when he had told me before to go straight to the hospital if I develop a bad headache and so...he broke my water right there and there was no looking back! At this point Chris was still home with the kids (how to you call someone at 5:00 am?)...anyways so I called him to rally in someone to help with the kids and that we were REALLY doing it this time...he panicked a little. By the time he got there I had already had my IV, a little Pitocin and my epidural had just taken effect...ahhhh! He hates needles and blood and so he got there at the perfect time! And, I made Taylor come with him...I think she will thank me in the future but for now, all she says is that it was "weird & gross"...hahaha!!! I progressed after getting the epidural a little bit at a time and was a 5-6 at around 11:00am. We decided that my mom, Chris and Taylor needed to go and get something to eat at about 11:45am...then that's when I felt everything change and I could feel her little head moving down my body...Chris walked in from getting some lunch a little after noon and we all ready to push. The epidural wasn't the best one I've had and so I was hurting pretty good but super numb in all the wrong places so pushing wasn't as easy as in the past...I think I pushed about six times through two contractions and out came this big, unexpected, pink, super healthy baby! We were prepared for the NICU with her being almost 4 weeks early but man upstairs blessed us immensily this time and we escaped ALL complications!!! She is just so beautiful and cuddly and BIG and so much fun so far! Jenner has had a bit of a rough patch but I am optimistic that things will get better...Thanks for all of your well wishes and for all of the food and treats and prayers...We are so grateful to all of you!!!
ps...I don't know when I will be able to blog again
