Just checking in to see if there's any new grandma's out there. Both of you must be so excited. The last few days were torture for me while waiting for a new grandbaby. Hope to hear of safe deliveries and healthy moms and babies this week.

Congratulation Cluless on the birth of your precious granddaughter Giada. Enjoy as much of this time with her as possible. They grow so fast. It seems the grandbabies grow faster than my children did. Its hard to believe my new grandson is already 6 months old. Hope you daughter is doing well.

April half birthdays are good right? Or maybe she's holding out to be a Halloween baby lol. In any case it won't be that much longer, hang in there. Here (Canada or our province at least) they still do internals till the end.

To answer your question " Why the C Section at 2 am?" Well when she went to her appointment she still wasn't dilated and they found her blood pressure was a little high I think it was 140/74 and they found higher protein in her urine, so they gave her a blood test to check for preeclampsia the results came back borderline, so doc suggested inducement for 8 Monday night. She went in on Monday to have a catheter in to open up the cervix and they would start the inducement medicine on Tuesday morning. Her cervix only opened 4cm and the baby was still very high, she hadn't dropped at all and her contractions were very mild even with the meds. At 6:50 they broke her water by 7:10 the contractions were very strong and very close, but the baby still was not coming down at all. At 12:30 her doc did an internal and checked her out. She came out and told us that basically nothing had happened and she was same as Monday night except for her cervix being dilated at 4cm and at this point it would be best to just deliver the baby by C Section. There already was a patient in the O.R. and needed to wait about an hour before being taken to the O.R. There you have that's how little Giada was born by C-Section at 2:44am on October 22 instead of the 23. If she wouldn't have been induced I'm pretty sure she would have held out till Halloween lol.

Oh how exciting! Looks like it won't be much longer now! All the best! I just realized she'll be a Harper or Holland probably born on Halloween how cool is that! She has the H theme going on.

Induction tonight starting at 8 pm. I think Holland might now be out because she doesn't want to be a "Holly ween" baby!

This baby is not being very cooperative! Mom has been in labour since last night and she is not progressing very fast. We might just miss Halloween!

Baby Harper made her grand appearance just after 6 pm on Halloween! Mommy, daddy and baby are doing very well and are very tired!
I got 15 minutes with her before the ward closed for the night but it was love at first sight!

How's all the grandmothers and grandfathers doing this holiday season? Hope everyone got to see their grandkids for Thanksgiving. Do you have all of the shopping for the little ones done? I've been done a few times. Every time I say I'm done, I find another outfit or toy or book that I'm sure would be enjoyed. The kids try to stick me to 2 presents at Christmas and 1 for their birthdays. But that's so hard to do. When they get older it will be easier to stick to that.

My little grandson will be 8 months old in a few days. Time sure does fly. C is sitting and is trying to pull himself up in the crib. He's army crawling, but he likes to roll to get where he's going faster. We think he'll be an early walker. He has an older brother to keep up with. R (will be 4 in Feb), is so excited for Christmas. He helped his parents decorate the tree and he's been busy making all of his presents for the grandparents. Those are the best presents ever. :love: :love: :love:
My granddaughters J (2 1/2) and E (15 mos) are enjoying counting down the days on the Advent calendar. DD and SIL are probably more excited than the girls. I have to wait until the last minute to mail the presents to them. DD has been known to open up their presents as soon as they get them and not have any to open on Christmas. :rolleyes:

Who has travel plans?

Harper is a tiny baby. She was 7.13 at birth and at 8 weeks she is just over 9 lbs, still less than my kids at birth. She is quite precious, but I am a bit worried. She makes no eye contact, won't nurse, sleeps 11 hrs at night since 5 weeks. I keep my mouth shut but I can't remember my babies being like that. I'm a bit worried she might be autistic. Calm me down? Should a 8 week old baby be looking at faces???

Hugs April. I'm sorry you're so worried about your sweet granddaughter. I'm not an expert, but each baby is different and reach milestones at different rates. When does she go back to the ped? Harper may just be petite, which can be a good thing. :D Try not to worry too much and don't compare her to other babies. Hope you get to enjoy her for Christmas.

Last night I got to babysit my grandsons while my DS and DIL went out for her birthday. The boys are so much fun. I was telling R how we will be opening presents in 2 days and he was so excited. I just hope the kids don't get too upset about all the presents I got. But, being a grandmother allows me to get them as much as I want. My son has to work and we are getting together around noon, but since he works so close to my house, he can always come over for a little bit then go back to work if need be. I hope he gets finished, but at least he will have a little time with us and can always come back after he gets done working.
