Growing Up

Here is Kaitlyn not even 2 days old...

Kaitlyn at 2 Months
I really feel like time is flying now. She is already 2 months old and growing so much. She is becoming very alert, and is the best nursing baby!! She is starting to sleep between 6 to 8 hours at night for me!!

Stacie looks so huge to me now...I can't believe she is 4!!

Kaitlyn Leah Gore

Kaitlyn Leah Gore
We welcomed her on Sunday Nov. 21st at 11:51 pm
She was 7 lbs 15 1/2 oz, and was 20 1/2 in. long

After a 16 hour labor she finally came!! We were told I would be induced on Sunday, and to be at the hospital at 8 am. We got there and got all registered and in our room before 8. The nurse came back and told us our doctor wanted to start the induction by using 3 sets of gel inserts, (meaning no pitocin, he didn't want to be 'on call' that day). So one by one...they would insert a gel, I would lay still for 1 hour, then walk for 1 hour...we did this 3 times...and I had hard labor contractions, and he was thinking of sending me home if I wasn't far enough 6 hours later, the doctor decided I better stay since I was a 5. (ha ha on him). So around 6pm I FINALLY got my took 22 min. for it to kick in...I was hurting so bad. The nurse kept checking me and I wasn't dilating fast enough, so we begged the doctor to break my water...which he finally did at 9pm. So I progressed to a 7. Around 11:35pm (yes 16 min. before she was born) that night they decided to go ahead and give me pitocin, since I wasn't going fast enough....well they gave it to me and in 8 min I finished going to a 10. By then the pitocin had made her heart rate drop, and the doctor came running in, asking me how fast I could get her out...I told him the other 2 I got out really fast, so he told me we needed to do it fast. Well I only pushed for 20 sec. before she ya I BEAT the record. He told me I was the fastest he had ever seen. (even though I was annoyed with him for making me suffer all morning with horrible contractions, I am glad she got here safely.) It was a bad experience (labor and doctor), but the staff was pretty ok...Ihad a few hard headed nurses, but over all ok. We did get a free STEAK dinner for Zac and I in the hospital (their treat to all new parents), with Cheese was actually pretty good!!

Baby Update!!

Here is little miss Drama!! She turned back to head down position at the last min. Doctor was very excited. She is getting extra fluid around her, so they are hoping she doesn't try and flip back. She always has her hands or feet in her face, so it's hard to actually see her...but this is one of the best shots. She is 37 weeks 2 days here!!
