Emmalyn's Birth Story

I am just finally getting around to blogging about this! Emmalyn decided to surprise us with her early arrival on Monday, May 6, 2013. Sunday I woke up and was having some major pain so instead of going to church I went to the hospital to be checked out. Since I was having contractions they decided to give me a shot and some pain medicine to stop them since I was only at 36 weeks. I was sent home and laid down to get some rest. At 7 that evening I woke back up and was still having contractions and in horrible pain so we headed back to the hospital. This time they decided to keep me to monitor me and run some tests. The next morning they decided that I could be having appendicitis so I was sent for an mri. Thankfully I didn't have appendicitis but because I was in so much pain and not getting any relief they decided to induce me. Emmalyn Joy made her arrival at 8:06 pm weighing 5 pounds and 5 ounces and 19 1/4 inches long. Thankfully she was perfectly healthy and everything was fine.

We are absolutely over the moon in love with her and she is such a good baby. I couldn't be happier!
