Genevieve Christine was born at 8:48 a.m. on August 11th.-right on Daddy's birthday!
5 lbs 5 oz and 18 and a half inches.
She was three weeks early and due to a bad reaction to the Ptocin was delivered via Csection. The first day was scary and she had to stay in NICU for 5 days. We all were home last Monday and she eats great and sleeps like an angel. We have been blessed beyond belief.

LOOOONG birth story later- and my HG is over forever. I had my tubes tied-I'm sad that is the end of the road for me-but wanted to bring the HG to an end. Love you girls so muchxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooooooooooo


Here is a link to pics. Hit continue (maybe 2x) then click on her pic with her name on it

Congratulations! I'm sorry to hear you had a scary time at the start but I'm glad all is well now. You've done so well to get through an HG pregnancy, well done.
