Brooklyn Paige Lewis

She has finally arrived. She was born on May 5, 2010. She weighs 5lbs 11oz and is 18 inches long. She has lots of hair, and is perfect!

I went in for a doctors appointment on Wednesday, and her fluid levels were were under 5cm so they decided to keep me. They induced at 1:30pm and she was born at 8:44pm. It all happened so fast. We are so excited that she is finally here. We are so in love! So without further ado here is Miss Brooklyn!

Nothing can just be normal

I have been walking around with this pregnancy, and all I hear is "Wow you are so small." I thought maybe that was just the way my body was carrying this pregnancy. Well it turns out that Brooklyn is a small baby. I am 37 weeks and she is only 5 pounds. It turns out that she does not have enough fluid in there. They did some monitoring, and she is still active so they told me to just rest and drink lots of fluids. I have to ask the question, Why don't they just take her out? It scares me to death that something will happen to her while we are just sitting here doing nothing. I do not want to lose another baby. I cannot go through that again. I am going to be monitored twice a week until I deliver. So I guess I have to just sit around and see what happens in the next couple of weeks.
