Awesome new website!!

I have discovered a website that is very helpful! It is alice.com and you can add items that you use such as toilet paper, diapers, wipes, coffee, shampoo...etc. to your profile. You can set these items to "remind" you every so often and you purchase them off the site and they are delivered straight to your house!! The shipping is free and they have all sorts of coupons and always search for the best deals on name brands!! Try it out! I'm looking forward to not having to use Wal-mart for "staples" that can be delivered to me! Please use the link below to sign up so that I get credit! Thanks!

Our precious girl

Sorry this has taken me so long to post, but here we are!

Adalynn Zoe Ohnemus was born into the world: August 1, 2009 at 5:22 pm. She weighed 8 pounds 0 ounces and was 21 inches long.

My labor started at 5 o'clock in the morning and I got to 10 centimeters at approximately 5 pm that afternoon. I pushed for 20 minutes, and we had our baby girl! I could not have asked for a better labor and delivery/ nursery/ postpartum experience. Thanks to EVERYONE at BMCE for making sure we were safe and healthy!

I posted an album of pictures on facebook, and I'm going to post the link here because it is so much easier to do that than to try to post all of the pics on here!

Change in plans!

So...I went to see Dr. Miller today for a regular check-up, and like the good patient that I am I brought her my BP log of the last week. She didn't like what my blood pressure had been this past week AT ALL. She asked me if I'd put myself on the books already for induction, and I told her that I did for next Thursday...and she says "Hmm..I just don't know...let me think on that." Then she checks my reflexes and my swelling and my liver..."I just don't know...what do you think about Saturday?" (Hold on a minute, let me pick myself up off of the floor). Okay....Saturday...sure...2 days from now....sure! Adalynn is strong and healthy and mature and Dr. Miller doesn't see the point in waiting any longer...when I could potentially get sick and put both of us @ risk. So, pics of our little girl...outside my womb...will be posted soon! :)

You're late, you're late- for a very important date!

Haha...that quote from Alice in Wonderland keeps running through my mind!! Kevin and I talked about it and....(drum roll please..) August 6th is the date we have chosen! It is a Thursday, so Kevin will only have to take off 2 days from work...he can back on Monday...if he can stand it!

So we will arrive @ the hospital about 5 am and they'll start my IV and get the Pitocin started....I'll get my epidural when I start to hurt...and then we will wait on our little girl! Can't believe it's only two weeks away!!

Updates!

So...I just got back from Dr. Miller's office...everything is looking good- Adalynn is happy- her heartrate is great and her valves sound beautiful :) She has dropped some!! Yay! My blood pressure is running about the same as it was last week, and I've been checking it daily and it has not been crazy high. Dr. Miller was okay with what my BP had been through the week. She said that she does not want me to go past 39 weeks since my BP has been slightly elevated. She doesn't want me to end up getting sick and not be able to enjoy our baby- not to mention that she just doesn't want me to get sick and put mine and Adalynn's health in jeopardy. So....Kevin and I have 3 dates to choose from...August 5,6, or 10th! Ack! How do you choose the day your baby will potentially be born?? I mean, this is a day she will be stuck with for the rest of her life! I will update later when we have chosen a date! :)

Pancakes!

So... a while back Amanda @ More than words wrote a blog entry about pancakes and how McDonald's makes them. McDonald's apparently replaces the liquid called for in the pancake mix with Sprite. Well....I made them this morning and they were SO yummy!! The pancakes were so light and fluffy! The batter even bubbled before I put them in the pan! So...the next time YOU make pancakes...try them with Sprite! :)

Ultrasound results!

Adalynn is head down just like she is supposed to be! Yay!! She weighs approximately 6 lbs 8-9 oz. She is so cute! I love her lips and cannot wait to eat her up!!! :) She has a lot of hair, on the ultrasound it was floating around like a little spiky-do! I just hope it's not a whole 4 more weeks before we get to meet our little girl!!
Update: I bought a BP machine so I could take mine daily- today it's 125/84. Better- being off work must really be a good idea....

Pregnancy Ticker!
