So, as my sig has shown, the lovely Mrs. whatever and I were expecting our second baby (a girl), and her due date was November 9th. Well, come Wednesday AM my first daughter made a peep that woke my wife up. After checking on her, my wife noticed that she didn't feel the baby moving inside her - and this has been one active little baby. We waited a little bit to see if we'd feel anything, but still no moving. So we headed to the hopsital where they quickly found the baby's heart rate and also found that my wife was having mild contractions. After some of them, they noticed that the baby's heart rate would drop, then come back. As a result, they transferred my wife to a hospital with better services for newborns.

When we got there, they quickly determined what they felt was a lack of motion in our girl, although she had good blood flow and heart rate. They decided to do the delivery right away to help our girl out. So, as of 1:11 PM on Wednesday the 14th, little Jennifer Elizabeth was born - all 3lbs, 1 oz. of her!

Anyhow, both Mother and Baby are doing well and recovering in the hospital. Sounds like Jennifer will be in the hospital for at least a month to continue her development. Luckily, she has been moving around a lot - a relief to us, and from what they can tell she is a perfectly normal little girl.

Whew!

Congrats - and thanks for the update..

a word to all of you younger W's - Mommies today work too hard taking care of us lazy, pro wrestling watching jerkoffs. So treat 'em nice. Especially when they are lugging around your kids inside 'em. Glad everything worked out. You have one almost exactly 18 years younger than mine, so I can tell you that your next 18 years (at least) will be one of absolute bondage to that girl.

But you knew that already.

Thanks for the well-wishes! Mother was discharged from the hospital yesterday, baby is doing well also. We even got to hold her yesterday - too much fun!

Hey, Cleveland teams are undefeated since she was born. Coincidence? I think not! TRIBE IN '05, BAY-BEE! (We'll, um, hold off on the Brownies just yet...)

Well, for newborns the weight tends to go down a little, then bounce back. As of last night, she was at 3lbs., 1 oz., so she is doing pretty good on the "bounce back" in that respect. She started out last weekend on 3-4 cc's of milk, now she is up to 12 cc's every three hours or so. She's also looking a lot better - when she was born she was kind of all wrinkly. Now (for lack of a better way of putting it) she's smoothed out considerably. She's been breathing on her own too, so that's a huge relief.

One week down, about 3 to go 'til we can bring her home!
