Madalynne Grace has Arrived!!!!

Yep, Madalynne Grace decided to make her world appearance almost 4 weeks early, well I guess my body decided it was time. 



I went into the ER at 1am last Thursday for pains up in my ribs......thinking Madalynne was just pushing on my ribs and they would tell me to go home.  When they checked me out, they discovered I had produced PIH (pregnancy induced hypertension, my blood pressure was skyrocketing (up to 200 at one point) and my liver enzyme levels were elevated.  Very shortly they were telling me that it was time to induce, and they were going to have to put me on Magnesium.  Magnesium is horrible and made me miserably sick throughout the entire process.  Madalynne came into the world Thursday Sept. 15th at 5:03pm, and was 5lbs 12.5ozs, 18" long.

She is adorable and we are TOTALLY in love with her already.  She was perfect with no issues.  She didn't even have to have oxygen.  She has just a touch of jaundice, but is super super sweet!
