She’s Here

Well, after laboring for 17 hours, and pushing for 30 minutes, Khloé Felicity was born into this world on August 15 at 7:26 a.m. She was 7 lbs 5 oz and 21 inches long. After 38.5 weeks of gestation, she’s here.
Its been over a week now, and we are happy but TIRED. Khloé is definitely a character. I will be back to update on our progress and add pictures, but she’s napping now and this is my only chance to clean up. Till then, I’ll leave you with a picture of my little Diva.

Progress!!

Welp, I went to my Dr. appointment yesterday. After having contractions the day before, he checked my cervix. I’m 1.5 centimeters and 80% effaced. Finally, progress. Its not much, but at least there’s an end in sight.
I’m still contracting off and on, so hopefully I’ll have more news soon. Till then, I’ll be resting and taking long walks.
See you next post.

38 weeks

Maybe I shouldn’t do this to myself, but I’ve been watching a lot of labor and delivery shows lately. I suppose I’m trying prep myself for what’s about to happen. I watch these women who decide to go au naturale… God bless you. I am not one of these women. Give me drugs. I have nothing to prove, I’ve been through this twice already. Why change now?
13 days (or less) to go. I’ve gained 60 lbs (good grief).
We are packed and ready to go. Diaper bag is ready and my bag is packed (now only if daddy would pack his stuff). I’ve been walking daily and using my yoga ball to help move this baby along. Sleep is a thing of the past. I pee every hour. Plus, my pelvic area is still in pain. Getting up from sitting or laying down… Its a task.
Nesting is difficult because I can’t move the way I want.

We are hoping this is the week she wants to come out. My doctors appointment is Wednesday and I better be dilated.
More updates soon, I hope.

When??

Dear Khloé,
When are you coming out? Mommy is exhausted and your kicks and stretches are beginning to hurt. I’m sure you are comfortable and warm in there, but I’m overly anxious for you to come out. Your sisters and grandparents will be here soon, and they’d like to see you soon. Plus, daddy heads back to teaching soon and he wants you out before he starts. Now, hurry up little one.
Love, your overly anxious mother

P.S. Sorry about all of the spicy food lately.
