just a quick post
I was admitted to the hospital Friday for low (basically no) amniotic fluid.  Despite rehydration overnight in the hospital, the situation didn't improve, so I delivered our beautiful baby girl this morning, April 25th, at 10:11am.   She's a month early, but perfect of course.  Weighed in at a gargantuan 5 pounds 9 ounces (over twice what Abby weighed at birth!).  

Trying to get the pictures off the good camera, but haven't managed it yet, so here's one not-so-great picture to tide you over:

Didn't you read the owner's manual. You were supposed to check the dipstick regularly :-)

Seriously, a big mazel tov to the six + one of you. I'm glad to hear that all are healthy. Looking forward to reports of normal health resuming quickly!

a fine point! Believe me, I was mighty pissed off about that oversight. But thrilled to have this pregnancy OVER with!

Looks like an excellent picture to me! Glad to hear that all is well.

Congratulations, once again.

Mazal tov!

She's bigger than either of mine were.

how exciting!! mazel tov!! What a relief that your pregnancy is over and a healthy child is on the other side. You deserve a medal for carrying that girl for 8 months!!!

I'm so thrilled to not be pregnant!

Congratulations! 5 1/2 pounds is AWESOME! I was wondering about you all weekend too .. thinking silence is no news...or is it? Ha. You did a fabulous job! Are you hungry? How are you feeling now? She sure is worth it, look at that little inquisitive face.

Yeah, I didn't post when I got admitted to the hospital with the oligohydramnios, because I didn't know if it was going to be straight to a c-section, hospitalization for the duration, or something in between (it turned out to be something in between). I just didn't want a lot of speculating until there was something to really know.

Yes - I was starving the entire time I was in labor and have now gotten to EAT SOLID FOOD! ;)

She's perfect - on the small side of average for her gestational age, and an absolute angel (so far). Definitely worth it. (as for the inquisitive look - it took her a while to shake the dubious look she had for hours after delivery!) :)

mazal tov on both having a beautiful baby girl, and on the pregnancy being over!! enjoy eating ;-)

I couldn't be more thrilled. I got the perfect pair - she was late enough that she was healthy and it was safe for her to come out, and early enough that I didn't have to put up with another month of pregnancy!

Thanks! Haven't heard from you in a bit - how are your triplets?

Mazel tov! She's so very gorgeous. (And bigger than my term baby was. Wow.) And I'm so, so glad that both of you came through that pregnancy.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: April 26th, 2010 10:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! (you had a very tiny term baby - this girl of mine was slightly under average for gestational age... but still huge compared to what we're used to!)

She's beautiful, although she looks like she has a little "I wasn't ready to wake up yet" scowl going on.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: April 26th, 2010 10:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
she wasn't remotely ready to wake up! She's still not - she sleeps a lot, but mostly only if she's curled up with me.
From: proudestmom Date: April 26th, 2010 06:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Mazel tov! alot of nachas! may raising her be easier than your pregnancy!
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: April 26th, 2010 10:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Amen! (I've been saying all along that after that pregnancy, she'd better be a saint on the outside - so far, so good on that one!)

I think she was pretty ticked off that she was awake right then. ;)
