We got one of the best kinds of news there is today-- My Sister and her Hubby had a baby boy today!! I am so happy and excited for them and I am sure their little girl is excited about her new baby brother. My sister's first pregnancy resulted in a premature baby and so with this pregnancy, doctors kept a close eye on her and the baby. Normally by the 8th month, the baby's head comes down to settle in the pelvic area in preparation for the birth, but for my sister, the baby's head stayed wedged under her ribcage. They tried to physically get the baby to change position but all they did was cause my sister some pain with all the pressure they put on her belly. They scheduled a c-section for later this week unless her water broke and baby decided to come early. Well, her water broke before the scheduled date and they ended up doing a c-section early this morning. Both Mama and baby are doing fine.
I wish I could be where she is and hold my new nephew in my arms, give my Sister and her Hubby a great big hug and squeeze the stuffing out of my niece! Since I can't be there, I will have to send her some presents through the mail and make do with photos and the video phone. It's a happy day for our family!! Yay!!
