My birth story as promised:
Kaytlyn Elizabeth Marie
Due Date: June 30th
Birth Date: May 11th
Weight : 4 lbs 3 oz
Length: 17 3/4"
May 9th I had my baby shower. All was ok. (Saturday May 2nd, I had a touch of spotting, but nothing I was running to dr. about. ) I live an hour North of where I work. I got to work at my usual time of 7:30 am.
I had a good 3 hours of work in and was at my desk when I had the feeling of my period starting. A slight cramp, a trickle of fluid and a feeling of a clot.
I ran to the washroom and out came A LOT of bright red blood.
I grabbed a co-worker and we went straight to the local hospital (not the one I was supposed to register at).
It was now after 11.
They hooked me up to the baby's heartbeat monitor and another band to measure contractions.
I went for an ultrasound at 2:30 pm to see if they could find out why or where I was bleeding from. Ultrasound showed nothing.
Dr. did an internal and discovered I was 1 cm dilated and was having contractions every few mins.
They waited an hour to see if i dilated further.
I was 2 cms and my cervix was paper thin.
Dr set me up for an emergency c-section as the baby was also breech.
At 6:57 pm my little pricess was born !

i understand how difficult NICU life is. If you need to call and vent or just need some support, pm me and i'll send you my number.
i hope she grows strong and comes home soon. lilah came home after 7 weeks in the nicu- we felt emotionally bankrupt. it does get better, but it is exhausting.
your pics are so pretty. just wanted you to know that i'm thinking of you.
