I went to the dr today and I had extremely low fluid around the baby plus she hasn't been moving around as much as she used to. So I'm going to the hospital tonight for monitoring and they are going to do my c-section sometime tomorrow morning. Right now I'm waiting for dh to get home and bring something to eat because they won't let me eat once I get there. So keep me and the new baby in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. I'm a little nervous about the c-section, but excited about the new baby. :

Wow, mama! Good luck w/ your c-section and I hope all goes well. Ds2 had low water and my water broke at 37 weeks..so I know how that goes. I wish you a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing pics of baby Lucy!

Happy Thanksgiving! Looks like your babe will be here just in time to celebrate with you!

You are in my thoughts and prayers ... it's 4:40AM EST on 11/26 ... I hope you are or have been able to rest. I can't imagine resting all night, and actually sleeping the night before I knew my baby was coming ... that's like every Christmas and birthday you had as a child all rolled into one sweet baby! :

Update when you're able ... can't wait to see pics!

Oh, wow, it is "tomorrow" which means little Lucy might be with you already. Can't wait to hear about the details.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Lucy Claire was born Wednesday at 11:57 am. She weighed 5 lbs 10 oz, 19 inches long. We came home yesterday and she is doing great. She is down to 5 lbs 2 oz, but my milk came in last night so I think she will start gaining soon. She nurses really well and latched right on with no problem as soon as they handed her to me in recovery.

They had a little trouble getting her out due to her position, so I am a little bruised around my scar, but today I am feeling way better and even was able to get up and fix breakfast for Lilly.

Well, I'm going to go snuggle Lucy!:

Our computer crashed and I can't find the disk to put our camera program on the new one, so I don't have any pictures to share. But my sister has two pictures on her blog.
