    I am finally in labor! That "leaking" feeling was worse today so I called the doctor and they sent me to the hospital (again). This time though when they checked me with the PH strip. I've been here since about noon. I'm having some contractions but not very regular. We'll see what happens. I'll update later!

    I had my daughter last night at 7:54. She weighed in at 5 lbs. 4 oz. She was 18 1/2 inches long. She is sooo tiny. But she is doing very well. The on-call pediatrician for our doctor's group came in and declared her perfect :) She said she'd be back tomorrow to check on her again.

    Congratulations! You get to go home and stay home! Yeah! A healthy baby is the best present in the world and being home for the holiday instead of being stuck in the hospital or worried about everything is a great gift, as well. Enjoy!

    Congrats! She must be a little peanut! That's how much I weighed when I was born and I was 17 inches long. I was 4 weeks early but I turned out ok :)

    What did you name her?

    That is exactly what my daughter weighed at birth. You would never know my daugher was a premie if you saw her today. Enjoy -- and she will grow fast.

    What a peanut. I remember celebrating when my youngest son finally crossed the 5lb mark (at 7 weeks old). They grow so fast. Like blue said, you would never know he was a preemie if you saw him now (well, is a skinny little runt, but that has more to do with the fact that one side of my family is super skinny, and my ex is really short.).

    My just-over-5-lbs-at-birth niece is now a happily married mom of 2.

    Enjoy her. This will be the most special Christmas of your life!!
