I went to my appt today at 37w4d and my BP has been creeping up a little and I have been having headaches that may or may not be related to PIH. They decided that it was probably a good idea to go ahead an induce and not risk something wacky with the BP. I'm actually really proud to have gotten this far with a reasonable BP and no bedrest.

I was already 4cm and 80% effaced. Pit started at 7:05. Hopefully it won't be too long.

Think good thoughts for us.

Good Morning!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of

Annaliese Kathryn
(pronounced AH neh LEES)
July 29, 2009, 1:26am
7lbs 1oz
19" long

Mama and baby are healthy and happy. We should be home from the birth center on Thursday night. It ended up being a rather wild totally natural unmedicated birth. I'll post the birth story soon.

We are all feeling very blessed.
