Jade Elizabeth Marsh

SHE'S HERE!!!!! and we all couldn't be happier. She looks just like her big sister and is already a really good baby. Fingers crossed she stays that way :) She was born on Tuesday night and weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz. and was 20 in. She has beautiful long reddish hair and we are all in LOVE! Her delivery was CRAZY! It was short and intense. We went in at 10:00 am with mild contractions, but the doctor wanted me to go in soon if I had any contractions because Monday at her office I was already 4, almost 5 centimeters dilated. So in we went- they said I was at a 5, admitted me got me on the antibiotics that I needed to take for 5 hours before she could come. As soon as I got through those they broke my water which was at 5:30 pm. The contractions finally started to really happen then and I was ready to push by 6:20. She was born at 6:29 pm. It was the craziest thing that has ever happened to me. It was intense, but with the most wonderful ending. 7 months ago they told us we had a 50% chance of not having a baby at all and now here she is. We are truly blessed and in awe of this beautiful new baby girl!!! We're glad to be home and trying to get some rest before Tyler has to go back to work and I am home with 2...YIKES!! Well there's an update for all of you! Lots more pictures to come, but for now I need to go cuddle my girls.

A Baby Update...

So I went to the doctor on Tuesday and she said I was already 3cm dilated and 75 % effaced. Yippee!!! So she said basically the baby could come any day. Pretty much as soon as my appointment was over I started having contractions. Nothing regular, but it was a start, right. So here I am 2 DAYS later still having irregular painful contractions. They start getting regular and then go away! Seriously this girl is giving me a run for my money. Hopefully she gets here soon. I can't even handle it. Lucky for us though my mom is AMAZING and called me yesterday to say she was coming to get Makena to stay at her house. It's been a nice break before the craziness gets even crazier!! We miss her too much already though. So that's our update. Hopefully the next post-like tomorrow- is that Jade is here! I don't know how much longer I can wait!!
