What a Weekend!

This weekend went nothing as planned. I spent almost the entire time in bed--sick. Not just sick-miserable. It was so bad that I spent half of today in the triage/ER at the Women's Center. I know it could be worse, but this has been a very hard pregnancy for me so far. Apparently I have severe Acid Reflux that causes excruciating pain in my chest. If my EKG had not come back normal, I would have sworn I was having a heart attack. Baby was ok and that is the most important thing. Great heartbeat at 161 bpm. I was so relieved to hear that sweet sound after all the pain I had indured over the past 48 hours. If you don't mind, say a little prayer that the medicine the Dr. put me on will work. I was never sick a day with my girls but its been a doozie of a 9 weeks for me!

But on a more PERFECT note----Baby Madeline Rose arrived on Wednesday, March 24th. She weighed 7.5 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. I don't think I could love her any more if she were mine. Isn't she gorgeous? She's wearing the outfit that Aunt KK gave her for Christmas. Below are some of my favorite pictures from our hospital visit. After I left the ER this morning, I snuck over to hold and spoil Maddie for about an hour.
