What a crazy 48 hours! We made it home on Thursday around 6:30. Miriam started having contractions spaced around 7-10 min. apart. They were not terribly painful, but not fun either. Around 9:30 they went to about 5 min. apart, so we called Darthmouth- they told us to drive in. (about a two hour drive). While waiting for Jess, our hero, Miriams water broke. I called back to Darthmouth and they told me to drive directly to Southern NH Medical Center ( about 30 min away) to monitor Miriam and baby to see if she is able to make the trip to Darthmouth. We got there around 11:30. After checking, the doctor decided it was too risky to send us to Darthmouth. Around 4:30am they decided that labor was coming, so it was time to deliver by C-section. Sadie was born around 6:30am weighing in at 5lbs 6.8 oz and 17 & 3/4" long.
She was not breathing, so they quickly bagged her and got her on a machine to breath for her. They were able to get her stable around 11:00am so they air-lifted her to Darthmouth. Miriam and I followed in an ambulance 4 hours later.
We are now all together here! Sadie is doing better- They are not having to supplement her oxygen anymore. She is pink, pretty, and has a lot of black frizzy hair. (Miriam says her eyes are blue).
We are extremely happy and very blessed by all the activities in the last couple of days. I want to thank everyone so much for your prayers, calls, and support.
At this point, they really don't know how long she is going to be living here at the hospital. We have heard at least 3-4 weeks.
I was hopping to post some pics of Sadie, but I forgot the camera cord! CRAP! I will get some pics up asap.
Sorry for such a long post, I have been awake since Thursday @ 6am. Gonna crash now- update more ASAP!!!
