Welcome Baby Ashleigh!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Ours was very eventful we welcomed Ashleigh into our family on Friday at 1:25 p.m. Throughout my pregnancy I was getting watched really closely because I had a placental cyst growing and over the last couple months it kept growing in size slowly. My doctor called me last week and wanted me to go get an amnio done to check to see if her lungs were developed since I was 36 weeks and if so they were going to deliver me yesterday. Well on Friday when I went they measured the cyst again and it grew from Monday 7cm to Friday 9cm so the specialist decided it was best just to get her out and not even chance it. So, from there on out everything started happening very quick before I knew it we were in a room getting prepped for a c section. Luckily they did decide to take her out because when they pulled the placenta out the cyst ruptured and blew a hole through the placenta. Her cord was going through the cyst, so if it would have ruptured on its own we would've ran into a emergency situation there. She is healthy and didn't need any assistance with breathing. She weighed 8lbs 9 oz and was 21 1/4 inches long! I'd say she was ready to come out!! Anyhow we are still getting acclimated around here but I wanted to give you all an update. I was so excited to see my mantle featured at A stroll thru life however I am sad to say that the urns fell off the mantle while I was in the hospital and broke so I have to figure out something else now. I'll keep ya updated!!

Here's a picture of Ashleigh, we are having fun playing dress up can you tell?? :)


Be back soon!
