Early arrival

Baby Gwendolyn decided that she didn't want to wait on Mommy's due date. Gwen was born five weeks and one day early on Friday, June 18, 2010 at 2:12pm. She was 4 pounds and 15 ounces, 18.5 inches. Although she is tiny, she is perfectly healthy. She is in a level 2 nursery (in between a regular nursey and a nicu). They are monitoring her heart rate and breathing which are both great. She has an IV with her food and antibiotics. I'm pumping because she is too little to nurse, but we will try again tomorrow. She is on antibiotics just in case the reason I had her early was due to an infection. They are testing the placenta to see if there was an infection. They should have results by Sunday and at that point they will see if she can come off antibiotics and come home or keep her on them and in the hospital.

I will post pictures soon. I am so excited for CC to meet her!
