It’s A Girl!

Filed under: family,old post from blogger — Tags: , , — Crystal @ 11:35 am

Sorry it took so long to update this blog! We have been really busy with our new baby daughter. Celeste Marie Wood entered this world on July 26, 2006 at 1:21 am after a long day of contractions and some minor complications that all turned out ok. The labor started Saturday night and we went to the hospital thinking my water broke when it turned out to be the mucus plug. They subsequently sent us home after finding out the labor was real, but to far away to be admitted. The next day we went to our doctors appointment where she monitored me and did and ultrasound stripped my membranes which sped up labor and intensified the contractions and sent us back to the hospital to be admitted, because the contractions were about 2 min apart and I was 3 cm dilated. Labor was great until about 5-6 cm dilated where the contractions lasted in that phase for about 4.5 hours and hurt a whole lot, but were ineffective. So they gave me an epidural and put me on an internal contraction monitor which made the contractions effective and led to the pushing. Which was great because I had a deadline of 2 am before they were going to move me and do an emergency c-section. The resident doc said to start pushing and I pushed once and Celeste went from 0 station to +3! The doctor bulged her eyes and said don’t push! She ran got my doctor and two pushes later Celeste entered the world! She weighed 8 lbs. 14 oz. and was 21 in long.

The next day we had a scare with jaundice. Her levels were in the danger zone and she was put under lights for 2.5 days and is now perfect.

Thank you all for your love, support and generosity with your presence and gifts!

Doctors Appointment Today

Filed under: family,old post from blogger — Tags: — Crystal @ 12:18 pm

Hooray today is our due date…. but still no baby. I saw the doctor today and the baby and I are both fine. They put me on a fetal monitor and the baby sounds great…for those of you trying to guess the sex of the baby by heartbeat rate the rate today was 155-160. So, if no baby comes this weekend, I’ll be back at the doctor on Tuesday and if no baby by Thursday a.m. I’ll be induced on that day. Either way the baby should be here by this coming Friday!

Still waiting for baby

Filed under: family,old post from blogger — Crystal @ 2:51 pm

So the baby has decided not to come yet and we are getting very anxious to find out if it is a girl or a boy and what he or she will look like. You have all probably seen the ultrasound pictures at http://geocities.com/crystalmariel/, but what will a mix of Alan and Crystal look like?

Here are two pictures of Crystal and Alan at 3 years old. We’ll let you decide.
