Our Rainbow has arrived!

Kelsey Grace has arrived, safe and sound. She was born on August 1, 2010, at 12:31 am, by c-section. She weighed 3 lbs 15 ozs and was 18 inches long. She arrived at exactly 31 weeks due to pre-eclampsia. My cerclage did an amazing job, even after its removal. I never dilated past 4 cm and we think that the cerclage caused scar tissue which prevented dilation.

Kelsey is in NICU right now, but she is doing amazingly well. She was in the 90th percentile for weight and length at birth. She was intubated after birth, given two doses of surfactant, then extubated later the same day. She has been on nasal canula, but that was removed of Friday so now at 6 days old, she is breathing room air on her own!

She is beautiful and amazing. We truly feel that Sydney handpicked this miracle and sent her to us. She is all we asked for and more. I know that Sydney is smiling down on us and her new little sister.
